Tyler N. Sheehan is a Field Agent with the Niemeyer Agency serving Brother Knights and their families in Cumberland, Effingham, Jasper and Shelby counties. Tyler joined the order in 2011 and became a Field Agent in January 2015. Tyler joined the Order because he felt it would be a great opportunity to help fellow Catholic men and their families, while still practicing his faith. "I love to lend a helping hand, and with this opportunity, I am able to help several Brother Knights and their families every year. That's what the Knights of Columbus is all about." said Tyler.
Tyler grew up in a very small town, called Trowbridge, Illinois. Early on, he saw the way small towns came together in times of need. "It's a small town where everybody knows everybody, and you can always count on somebody being there for you," said Tyler. Tyler wanted to be the go-to guy, in the time of need. He began by graduating Neoga High School in 2012. From there, he went to earn an Associates in Accounting, and a Certificate in Business Management at Lake Land College. He then began studying to become a licensed Insurance Agent. He went on to do so and has been a licensed insurance agent since November 2014. He continues his education today in Insurance.
Before Tyler's days as an Insurance Agent, he helped his father, Dan Sheehan. Dan has been an Agent with the Knights since September 2010. Dan has become a very successful agent with the Knights, achieving the Million Dollar Round Table Award (MDRT), an honor reserved for the top one percent of financial professionals in the world. Tyler studied closely as he got sufficient experience from his father, and became a MDRT qualifier, himself.
Today, Tyler resides in Neoga with his wife, Brittany. They welcomed a son, Eli, in November 2021. Their family attends St. Mary's of the Assumption in Neoga. Throughout his community, Tyler is involved with St. Patrick's Cemetery Board. Outside of work, Tyler referees basketball games and he loves spending his time golfing. Tyler said that you can always catch him on the golf course, every week, all year round.
Since joining the Order, Tyler has helped with many breakfasts, fish fry's, tootsie roll drives, March for Life, and several other charitable events with his local council in Neoga. Tyler enjoys helping others and will strive to meet your financial needs.
