Before we were basement suite renovations specialist we were one guy who just wanted to work with his hands. Owner Jon knew from a young age he wasn’t the type to sit behind a desk, also being from a trades family background he knew the general direction he wanted to go. The choice was all by t made come high school when he co-oped with a local electrician and that was it. He began his apprenticeship right out high school after working for a couple different companies he decided to strike out on his own becoming Ontario’s youngest master electrician and starting his own electrical contracting company.
The flip side of our story is Bill, the road scholar. Jon’s best friend since childhood had oats to sow before becoming the other half of Black Jack. Bill spent his 20’s traveling the world, working as English teacher from Saudi Arabia to Columbia. After being away for many years he returned home to Canada and joined up in the company to work while he planned his next move.
After working on several basement suite conversions that were full of mismanagement , delays and problems Jon and Bill offered their insights and experience to clients and within 48 hours of taking on they’re first project as general contractors , Black Jack Contracting Inc was born.
