The People Behind J Brothers Home Improvement

 Chuck Johnson – Owner

J Brothers’ President Chuck Johnson’s choice of vocation was clear to him from an early age. High school shop classes sparked his interest in the building industry, and motivated Chuck to attend Alexandria Vocational Technical Institute’s Carpentry Program. He has performed a variety of jobs within the industry throughout his 30-plus year career, most notably as project manager and vice president of custom-designed, high-end new homes for the majority of those years.

In 2000, Chuck co-founded J Brothers with his brother, who left the business in 2008, and now co-owns the business with his wife Teri. With his expertise, experience, and industry contacts, Chuck aspires to building J Brothers Home Improvement into one of the finest, most-reputable businesses in the home improvement industry.

In addition to J Brothers, Chuck volunteers his time at his church. In his free time, Chuck enjoys golf and spending time at the lake and with his family including his wife, daughter, three sons, four grandsons and four granddaughters.
