Doug Jolley
Doug is a 27 year insurance industry veteran. He is the CEO and managing partner of Southern Health and Retirement Planning (SHARP), a financial marketing organization (FMO) based out of Irmo, SC. He began his career in 1989 with American Republic Insurance, where he rose to vice-president before leaving to found his own business.

Doug is currently working on two new projects with SHARP – partnering with Israeli partners for SHARP to be the national marketing organization in the US for a unique cyber-security product with an insurance component. The second project is a faith-based sharing ministry for medical coverage.

Doug enjoys doing what he does every day – helping his friends and clients set goals on how to best achieve financial security and stability. He helps folks protect their families today and make their plans for a bright future a reality.

Doug and the other agents in SHARP specialize in safe-money retirement, life, health, and long-term care solutions for their clients. They also provide ancillary benefits.

Doug is also an accredited journalist of many years, having published hundreds of newspaper, magazine, and online articles and columns, as well as having been a featured guest on talk radio shows across the country.

Doug and his wife Jan celebrated their 35th anniversary last August. Their son Jonathan is also part of SHARP. Jonathan and his wife Lila made Doug and Jan proud grandparents with their gift of Fiona, who will be 4 in August.

Doug bought a 22’ Catalina sailboat last year and is looking forward to learning how to sail. He grew up with motorboats, but is new to sailing.

Client Testimonial

I have nothing but the highest recommendation for Doug Jolley and his SHARP team. In my personal working relationship with Doug, I can tell you that he is concerned and proactive about ensuring the continued well-being of his clients, be it for health/medical insurance or retirement planning. I cannot thank Doug enough for assisting my sister right before the December deadline for ACA enrollment. I referred her to Doug, and he immediately began to guide her through the process on the very day she contacted him. Subsequently, my sister’s husband suffered a heart attack in early January, and she was overwhelmed with anxiety and uncertainty as to what was being covered by insurance. Without hesitation, Doug was in constant communication with her, reassuring her and the family that the situation was under control. And he remains readily accessible – traits seldom found in the business world today.

Doug is the consummate professional, but more importantly, his greatest strengths are the qualities I continue to admire in him as a friend and associate; namely, his strong character and tremendous integrity. His selfless, rather than selfish, nature has no doubt contributed to his devotion to God, his family, friends, and clients. As I have told many others, Doug walks in the light of God with his love and compassion for others. I have the utmost praise, both personally and professionally, for Doug Jolley, an outstanding man, who embodies the best of core values in business and in life.

Client Testimonial

When not wearing his super cape, Doug is a real hero offering real solutions for health care options that really helped us. He’s even talked to doctors offices to untangle a few bumps at the start, also helped go the extra mile every time I’ve needed anything. It’s apparent his values are to relay a high standard of commitment to his clients. I was referred to him by great friends, and I can see why Southern Health and Retirement is a great choice I’ve made to do business with!

Client Testimonial

Doug Jolley has been very helpful to me with properly structuring my retirement, protecting me from long term care costs, and with my health insurance. He is very knowledgeable and very kind. He makes me feel so comfortable and goes out of his way to help me at anytime – day or night! I wish I had met him years earlier! He always has a smile on his face.


Client Testimonial

There’s one thing I immediately noticed about Doug: his main interest was in finding out where I’m at in life and what my needs are. Based on my circumstances, he let me know what health and life insurance risks I was facing and he offered plans that fit my budget and needs. I’ve always been the one to do all of my research and purchase online, but I needed more answers and advice than I could find. Doug says things like they are and uses simple language to explain my coverage. I’m glad I went to Doug, and you will be glad you did!
