Matt Igou founded Seaside Claims Services® in 2010, capitalizing on the surveillance skills he sharpened in an anti-terrorism battalion while in the Marines. This experience, along with an impressive team of investigators and case managers, has made Seaside Claims Services® a trusted partner in the claims investigations industry.
Matt is a second-generation Jacksonville, FL native and a United States Marine Corps veteran. Growing up, Matt was an active member of Asbury United Methodist Church, a Boy Scout, and a state competitive wrestler at Orange Park High School. Shortly after graduating, he followed his childhood dream to earn the title, United States Marine. During his military service, Mr. Igou served in an anti-terrorism battalion which was formed to combat the rise of Islamic terrorism around the globe. He was rigorously trained in the art of surveillance and counter-surveillance. Mr. Igou traveled throughout western Europe as a small element of Marines gathering intelligence, forging meaningful relationships, and often working in tandem with our NATO allies in the European theatre to accomplish our objectives. After his honorable discharge and transition back into civilian life, Mr. Igou was presented the opportunity to capitalize on the skills he had developed.
In 2004 Mr. Igou began his claims investigations career as an intern field investigator in Jacksonville Beach, FL. Over the next several years he gained extensive experience conducting major claims investigations, which include fatality and serious injury liability claims, wrongful death claims, and complex Workers’ Compensation claims, Mr. Igou built a reputation in the claims investigations industry for possessing the important attributes and skill sets required to produce above average results on a consistent basis. He forged key relationships in the industry, elevated his reputation, and eventually found himself in the challenging, yet rewarding role of Operations Manager at the agency he interned with. Mr. Igou eventually took the next logical step and founded his own agency.
His passion for fishing and sailing the coastal waters of Saint Augustine sculpted his vision for the name, Seaside Claims Services®, and for the logo mimicking the historical Saint Augustine Lighthouse. The Seaside Claims mission to our clients is very similar to the purpose or mission of the lighthouse: to be Your Trusted Partner in a Sea of Risk® Our core values are a direct reflection of the leadership and core values the Marine Corps has represented for over 247 years, and which were instilled in Mr. Igou from the day he arrived at Paris Island, SC to earn the title U.S. Marine.
Jason Davis brings 22 years of investigative experience, most recently handling a multi-state team of field investigators in both surveillance and SIU investigations. He has also established and maintained relationships with new and familiar clients and partners during this time.
Jason was born and raised in Jacksonville, FL and is a graduate of Sandalwood High School. He grew up playing local and travel sports to include soccer and baseball and continued these up until high school. Growing up in a single parent household, Jason began to work at the early age of 13 doing odd jobs around the neighborhood and for co-workers of his mother. This eventually led to other jobs including landscaping, grocery store clerk, dishwasher, line cook, law group runner, painting and pressure washing.
During the summers, Jason would sometimes work with his mother who was an insurance adjuster for third-party administrators that represented large corporations. The claims stories he would be privy to, and people he met, initiated an interest in the insurance industry.
Jason eventually went on to attend a local community college to pursue a career in Criminal Justice. It was during this time that one of his mother’s previous co-workers started their own private investigation agency and had immediate openings for Investigative Interns.
Jason was hired and during his time with the company, he obtained licenses in the states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, and South Carolina. He regularly traveled these states conducting various investigations and providing results above and beyond industry standards.
Jason continued to grow in the industry working for several nationwide companies advancing to Field Training Manager, Assistant Manager, and Operations Manager all while learning and developing new skills.

In 2003, Kat began her career in the claims investigations industry in Jacksonville Beach, FL. While with that agency, she became well versed in all aspects of the industry.

With her 18 years in the investigations field, Kat is a valuable member of the Seaside Claims Services® team.
Kat enjoys spending her free time with family, boating, fishing, and riding with her husband on his Harley Davidson.
