About Jacobe Brothers
Our heritage has defined our vision for the future
Jacobe Brothers Construction, continues to be a leader in construction expertise since our beginning in 1946. Our company has operated under the same name for over 50 years. During this time, three practices have maintained our company's integrity:
- Providing quality workmanship at a competitive price
- Completing projects in a timely manner, to the owner's satisfaction
- Guaranteeing all work
It is our philosophy that every project stands on its individual merits and needs; therefore we offer a unique and flexible approach to every project. It is our experience that churches require tailoring “project delivery methods” to distinctive needs rather than being restricted to a single contract method. Through our specialized process, we have very refined systems of integrating Design Requirements, Budget and Schedule, which result in significant savings to the owner.
The Jacobe Brothers story is a story of generations. In 1946 John “Jake” Jacobe moved his wife and three children to Tyler, Texas. Jake had a vision to start a company based on values of honesty, family, integrity. Much of the early days construction projects were connected to the petroleum industry as a result of the oil boom.
In the ‘60’s Jake’s two son’s, Leroy and Ken, became a growing part of the business. Ken had strong ties to the business community and the Jacobe client base began to reflect it. Eventually, Ken became the sole owner of the company.
In the years to follow, Ken’s sons, Bryan and Keith, followed in their father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and became an integral part of the family business. The family values that Jake Jacobe dreamed about for Jacobe Brothers Construction remain in place to this day and are largely responsible for our continuing success.
