Dayton Kilgus

Owner, Agent

Meet Dayton Kilgus

Hello Everyone! My name is Dayton and I’ve been an Agent with Compass since 2011. As an Agent I focus on insuring local Businesses and Farms and helping people with their personal insurance (home, auto, umbrella, etc…). I often tell people that what I love most about my job is getting to know people in our community and learning about what they do. We live in a community that is filled with unique businesses, farms, and people that are natural entrepreneurs and I love getting to know what each and every one of them does so I can find ways to protect their passions and livelihoods from the unexpected.

In 2016 I joined the Agency’s ownership team. As a co-owner of the agency, I work hand in hand with the rest of our leadership team to find ways to make Compass Insurance Partners different in a way that makes buying insurance a uniquely positive experience for our customers. I’m passionate about looking for ways to add value to our customer’s lives, whether that’s through my passion for technology or finding ways that our agency can positively impact the communities we serve.

Lydia, Dayton, Joni, Eli, & Adeline

I was born and raised in Forrest where I live with my wife Joni (Culkin). Joni owns and operates The Spotted Owl (clothing Boutique) in Fairbury.

The Spotted Owl

Joni & I have 3 kids: Adeline, Lydia, & Eli. In our spare time, we love doing projects at home and at The Spotted Owl, coaching and watching our kids play softball, baseball, volleyball, football, & basketball, and camping/traveling.

Our family attends First Baptist Church in Fairbury. Our faith in Jesus Christ is important to us. We enjoy being a part of our church congregation and being involved in our church’s youth ministries (Upwards Basketball, AWANAs, JV, High School Youth Group, & Children’s Church).

We recently made our way out West in our motorhome which was an epic dream of mine (my goal is to model Clark Griswold as a father).
