Stephen Geri is the founder and Managing General Agent at Diversified Employee Benefit Services, LLC. in San Antonio, Texas. When he’s not at the office creating customized health insurance and benefits packages for his clients, Stephen is an avid outdoorsman, golfer, tennis player, fisherman, and boating enthusiast.
Stephen has been an athlete for as long as he could walk on two feet. In his youth, baseball was Stephen’s sport of choice. While he eventually transitioned to playing other sports later in life, he still enjoys keeping up with the MLB and will always have a deep seated love of America’s Pastime.
After spending his early years playing baseball, Stephen Geri became a serious tennis player in the 1970s. His aggressive style of play allowed him to quickly rise to the semi-professional level. Rising as high as number 8 in the United States in 5.5 Tennis, Stephen’s promising tennis career was cut short by an injury. After recovering, Stephen picked up what would eventually become his favorite sport: golf.
With years of baseball and tennis experience and an intrinsic hand-eye coordination, Stephen became a natural golfer. After years of honing his game, golf is Stephen’s pastime of choice. One of the few sports you can play alone, Stephen has always relished the challenge of facing off against himself and against the course itself. Even when Stephen plays with friends and colleagues, the real competition is internal; against the landscape. He sees the game as an equalizer, pitting skill against skill, regardless of braun or brute strength. As a native Texan, Stephen follows fellow Texans and PGA golfers Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth, among others.
When he’s not working to help his clientele with benefits and health insurance, it’s a safe bet Stephen Geri is enjoying 18 holes.
Hobbies and Interests
Stephen also loves boating and fishing. He’s been an avid fisherman his whole life, spending his earlier years fishing the coast of Houston for trout and flounder. A day spent on the water is a day well spent in his mind. Stephen began bass fishing when he relocated to San Antonio for a business opportunity. Spending time on the open water and fishing with his grandchildren is one of Stephen’s greatest joys.
Stephen Geri absolutely adores his family. He takes pride in his grandchildren and does his best to be involved in their activities including saxophone concerts, school functions, and more. On Stephen’s family photos page, you can see just how much fun him and his family have together on all of their adventures. Recently, as a graduation present, Stephen gifted his grandson with a new car as he heads off to his freshman year of college.
He is also a Ping-Pong enthusiast and loves helping his wife in the garden.
