Originally from Eastern Iowa, Jason is a die-hard Hawkeye and Chicago Cubs fan.

He entered the construction industry in 1998 and hasn’t looked back since. When it comes to floor coatings, caulking or grouting, Jason’s got you covered. It’s a safe bet Jason will be the first person in the office every morning – usually before the sun comes up - but come Friday afternoon, he’s ready to get his boat out and fish in the next walleye tournament. When he’s not tournament walleye fishing, he spends his weekends with his wife, Rebecca, and daughter, Emma.
