…reflections on the heart and soul of JBC
Founded in Tyler in 1946, Jacobe Brothers Construction Company (JBC) has grown to become one of East Texas’ leading construction contractors.
The core values of three generations of Jacobes, beginning with John Jacobe, followed by his sons Ken and Leroy, and now Bryan, have defined Jacobe Brothers Construction (JBC) for what it is today.

Jake was a hard-working, high-moral, high family values type of man. He had a vision to start a business that was built on those values. And that was the orientation for what would become Jacobe Brothers Construction.

Bryan, like his father Ken, also grew up working in the family business and had always wanted to be a port of it.
Today, Bryan serves as President and heads a team of industry leading professionals as JBC continues to build on over 75 years of quality commercial construction all over Texas, from the Gulf Coast to the Red River and from West Texas to the piney woods of East Texas.
Giving is a core value of our Owners, our Company, and our Team. As a company, we support various local events and charities as well as national and international humanitarian outreaches.
An area of the world that is very close to our hearts is the country of Haiti. Bryan’s father, Ken Jacobe, began visiting Haiti in the 1970’s. After the 2010 earthquake in Port au Prince, Ken ran point on a project to rebuild a multi-purpose facility in the heart of the city that includes a medical clinic, school, community center, and church that was destroyed during that devastating earthquake.
JBC is very grateful by the fact that many of our sub-contractors and suppliers have joined with us in our efforts to see this project become a reality.

The success of Jacobe Brothers Construction continues today because of the “family”
which has grown far beyond what John Jacobe could have ever dreamed.
