Jack – General Manager for Cripple Creek & Florissant
Jack was born in Colorado and moved to Omaha, Nebraska when he was fourteen. After many years of living in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, Jack and his wife moved back to Colorado and settled in this area.
Of all of the vacations Jack has taken, a trip to Scotland and Ireland is is favorite. It was a fun and relaxing trip and it was nice to be able to stay at bed & breakfasts to actually get to know the people and become more immersed in their lifestyle. The history of the countries, old castles and churches, Giant’s Causeway, and their lives in general were all very interesting.
Jack’s grateful to be living in the mountains and enjoys spending time outdoors. Some of his other hobbies include photography (he finds plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the scenery and wildlife here), golf, building things, and learning new skills. He and his wife enjoy taking mini-trips to old ghost towns, abandoned mines, hot springs, and places that are off of the beaten path.
Jack has been working at Cripple Creek Ace since July of 2010. He’s knowledgeable in all areas of home improvement, including plumbing, electrical, and construction. If you have questions, Jack has answers, and he’ll be happy to help you get your project done.
Steve – Assistant Manager in Cripple Creek
Steve’s favorite vacation was to Italy and he enjoys art, cycling, and hiking when he’s not here with us.
At the store, Steve especially enjoys helping customers with lumber and wood finishing, but he can do it all. For your special wood and finishing needs, come and see Steve.
Don – Assistant Manager in Florissant
Don was born in Illinois and moved to Colorado in August of 2014. He and his wife have three sons and his favorite vacation was going with all of them to South Dakota. There they hiked the Badlands, ate in Deadwood, and searched for gold in the river.
On his days off, Don enjoys fishing, making models, playing chess, and golfing. Fortunately for Don, our Colorado weather allows plenty of nice days for fishing and golfing!
Don has a vast knowledge of all areas of construction and remodeling from working in construction management and general contracting for over 30 years. He came to work for us in November of 2015 when we were getting the Florissant store ready to open. Don became the Assistant Manager of our Florissant store in the early summer of 2016. When you need help with your construction projects or you have a problem, Don’s the guy for you to see!
