However, every hero needs a sidekick, and Flo is no different. Jamie was introduced in Progressive commercials in 2014 as Flo’s coworker.
Since his introduction, he has shared screen time with the Progressive mascot and has even stolen the show in some instances.

Who plays Jamie from Progressive?

's second most famous employee is played by Jim Cashman, a longtime actor, comedian and writer. He got his start in 1999 with minor roles in movies like The Rules of Etiquette. More recently, he had a part in 2016's The Boss, a comedy starring Melissa McCarthy.
His comedic talent is also seen in his writing credits. He has done writing work for recognizable names including Saturday Night Live and The Looney Tunes Show.
He is most well-known for his role as Jamie, though. Cashman portrays the character as a lovably obnoxious employee who tends to annoy everyone around him. Jamie often makes the punchlines to Progressive's commercials much funnier.

Jim Cashman aka Jamie from Progressive’s net worth

Cashman's Jamie character is prominently featured in
commercials. If you watch an hour of TV, you'll likely see a Progressive commercial, which means you'll probably see Jamie.
Being the face of recognizable commercials might not net an actor the same fortune that starring in movies or shows would. However, it can still be a lucrative market, as Jim Cashman proves.
It is estimated that the Progressive commercial star has an annual salary of around $500,000 and a net worth of $2 million. He truly lives up to his last name of Cashman.
Companies are happy to pay prices like this for commercials, though, especially when their commercials make the company a household name.

Other car insurance celebrities make even more

Most people would not turn down $500,000 a year, but Jim Cashman is making less than some actors do for their commercial work. The actor behind the number one
mascot, Flo, is making an estimated $2 million a year.
In a major Hollywood movie, the film's starring actor often makes the most money, and the same is true for commercials. This is why Flo makes more than Jamie.
Commercial veterans make good money for being the public faces of major brands, but advertisers love a true celebrity endorsement. NFL stars Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes, for example, make frequent appearances in State Farm commercials. Because of their star-power, celebrities make even more for their endorsements.
In Progressive commercials, Flo and Jamie always try to show drivers newer and smarter ways to save money on their insurance.
