Jerry Lee Benton is the owner and founder of JL Benton Contracting. This resident dreamer and farmer at heart can often be found grilling on his Green Egg and spending time with family and friends. He loves a good project and the relationships that are cultivated on the job site.

Nick Hargett joined the team in 2019 as a project manager and business development guru. When he isn’t working he can be found in the woods, on a lake, or a soccer field.
