Jimmy McKinney, President/Owner

Jimmy McKinney, President

Email: jimmy@jrcsi.com

Jimmy McKinney found himself having a love of woodworking from a very young age. In fact, at age 10, Jimmy constructed a club house in his back yard. This club house became a popular place for the neighborhood kids to hang out, because it was weatherproof. Jimmy then began to focus his attentions toward constructing and woodworking. In high school, he studied drafting and took several woodworking classes.

It was during high school that Jimmy met Russell, and they formed a bond of friendship that stands to this day. After graduation, Jimmy went on to study business management at Eastern Kentucky University, and Russell entered active-duty, serving in the U.S. Army.

Jimmy entered the U.S. Army Reserves and from there went to work at a lumber company and other construction/home building companies. Jimmy and Russ traveled around the USA, and they learned as much as they could about the trade, other businesses, and each has gained plenty of life experiences to share.

After several years of working and learning, Jimmy started his own company, McKinney Deck Builders. Jimmy built the business by working full-time during the day at the lumber company, and he worked evenings and weekends building decks, remodeling homes, and mastering tile work. The motto and foundation of our company was then—and still remains today—“Customer Service and Quality First.”

In 2003, Jimmy and Russ partnered together, founded and changed the name of Jimmy’s business to J&R Construction Services, Inc. Our foundational beliefs of customer service and quality first have remained unchanged, and we began to grow our business. Jimmy eventually purchased 100% of the business from Russell in 2004. Jimmy and the entire team truly enjoy helping everyone “Enjoy the Process”.

Jimmy has been married to Penny for over 16 years, and they have three daughters. Penny grew up in Evansville, Indiana, and she has a lot of family in Owensboro, Kentucky. They enjoy many summer weekends in western Kentucky on Lake Barkley, relaxing and taking in some of the most beautiful sunsets in the state. Thank you for allowing our entire team to serve you and your community.
