Jonathan, the sixth oldest child, worked by his fathers’ side for most of his upbringing and early adult life. He can remember on the weekends as a child, going with his family and jacking up buildings to pour a new foundation, breathing new life into an old structure. As he grew up and started his own family, the importance of treating his clients, customers, and workers as family became a signature of his. He spent many years perfecting his trade working on remodeling hospitals or building new bridges, and on each project, he poured his considerable skills and knowledge into ensuring the best completed project possible. From union work in Michigan, to infrastructure in the oil fields of North Dakota, to remodeling projects in Georgia. It was his work in the oil field that developed his love for the craft of working concrete. Starting as a foreman and quickly working his way up to superintendent Jon was quickly recognized as a force to be reckoned with in the concrete industry. As Jonathan led his teams, he discovered that he had a unique ability to make concrete bend and move to his will. His skill in this area helped him grow within the company. His next step was to move to Texas as the head of his own division. However, Jon chose family over career and stepped away from concrete.
