Kenny was born and raised in Las Vegas and comes from a family with a long legacy of construction knowledge. He doesn’t remember a day when he didn’t want to be in the construction trades. Upon graduating high school early, he went through an additional four-year schooling program to obtain his journeyman’s status. Kenny moved up to a supervisory role early in his career and managed large-scale casino projects. He ventured out on his own to start a residential and small commercial general contracting business, and eventually a commercial framing and drywall business as well. He enjoys all types of construction, but the large, more challenging projects pique his interest the most, and he is continually impressed how a group of people can come together and work hard to keep jobs on schedule and on budget. He hopes to continue to open trade businesses with plans of continuing to better the Las Vegas community.

Most recently, he spent the last seven years working at a paint and coating manufacturing company before joining forces with Kenny. Over the last few years, Jason has harbored those sales tactics in an attempt to outreach the community and spread the word of Thomason Construction.
