The four generation, family-owned company that is currently known as Fred Jackson Tuckpointing began with one man working out of his garage. In 1947, George R. Jackson founded a small one man business as a freelance steeplejack and tuckpointer. Although Fred Jackson Tuckpointing Company currently focuses its attention toward commercial and industrial painting, sandblasting and masonry restoration, George’s original claim to fame was his fearless love as a steeplejack. As E.A Bulkley stated back in 1972 “Due to the spine-chilling nature of his work George Jackson has always attracted photographers the way a night club cutie attracts a bald man.” This public fascination rewarded George with many work contracts and expanded his job market.
In 1983 two of George’s sons, Fred and Alan, took over Jackson Tuckpointing. Over the next 11, years Fred and Alan concentrated their efforts on establishing a more permanent seasoned company while still maintaining the work ethics George instilled. Because there were two owners, Fred assumed the estimator portion of the work and Alan oversaw the operations and job sites. In 1994 Fred and Alan decided to part the business and “Fred Jackson Tuckpointing Company Inc.” was born. In 1994 ownership of Fred Jackson Tuckpointing changed hands of two of Fred’s sons Kelly and Dane Jackson. Kelly is in charge of the estimating and scheduling and Dane focused his energy toward operations, job site management and fleet safety management. In January of 2016 ownership again changed hand to the fourth generation of family ownership to Kelly’s son Travis Jackson. With Kelly still involved in the business Kelly and Travis still carry on the family tradition that George started and has carried through each generation for 70 years. Over the generations of ownership our employees have followed suit. We are proud to say we have also had third generation employee’s work for Fred Jackson Tuckpointing Company. The familial dedication to this company only strengthens our dedication to our work.
