Hometown Agents in Dubuque and Dyersville, IA

The English Agency of Dyersville, IA and the O’Connor & English Agency of Dubuque, IA have been serving Dubuque, Dyersville and surrounding communities for over 65 years. Our dedication to the community is deeper than insuring families and businesses. As members of the Dubuque Chamber of Commerce, and Dyersville Area Chamber of Commerce and supporters of many other local organizations, we strive to make our part of Iowa a better place.


We make giving back a part of our everyday life—from “paying” to wear jeans every Friday and donating the proceeds to the Iowa Children’s Hospital to ringing the bell for the Salvation Army outside local stores around the holidays.

We also donate to and support the United Way in Dubuque, Shop with a Cop, Shoes that Fit, the Colts Drum and Bugle Corp, DuRide, All That Jazz Festival, Alzheimer's Foundation, Dyersville Health Foundation, and various fundraisers for local fire departments and schools.


Tim English is on the Board of Directors at Mercy Hospital and Ellen Kennedy Living Center, and on the board for Dyersville Economic Development. He’s also a member of the Knights of Columbus, Lions Club, and AOH.

Derrick Parsons and Amy Glaza are members of the Dyersville Young Professionals group. Derrick also sits on committees for the MercyOne Health Foundation Board, St. Francis Xavier Parish Council and the Big I Young Agents Committee. Several of our staff volunteer with different school groups and/or boards.
