Ruth James is a licensed independent insurance agent with Platinum Insurance Group. She loves working side by side with her brother, Dave Jarnagin, who is the agency owner. Ruth was raised in North Ogden, Utah and is the youngest of eight children, seven of which are boys. Having seven big brothers taught Ruth much about patience, the art of survival, and the love for sports.
Before joining the insurance industry in 2018, Ruth was a Beauty Advisor and Account Coordinator for Estee Lauder Cosmetics. She enjoyed working one on one with her clients and exceled by providing them with the utmost customer service and care. After becoming a mother, Ruth had the opportunity to be a piano teacher for twelve years. Her love of music and of teaching, blended with the most fantastic students, equaled sheer happiness!
When Ruth isn’t in her awesome office, she is cooking or baking yummy biz with her daughters (we like lots of butter), playing her piano or accompanying talented singers, hiking in the beautiful mountains, and having family movie nights. The James family are huge San Antonio Spurs fans and even named their precious golden retriever Duncan, after the one and only Tim Duncan.
Ruth is married to Chad James. They have one son and two daughters and reside in Roy, Utah. Duncan, their dog, is by far the most loved by everyone, because they can’t resist his sweet face! Ruth loves being a wife and mother and she’s happy that she is able to represent her clients at Platinum Insurance Group. Having the ability to provide her clients with different options, effectively listening to their needs and concerns, and joyfully responding to their requests are aspects that she truly loves about being an agent.
