Jowers is chief financial officer of family business
When he graduated from Frenship High School in 2003, Josh Jowers knew he wanted to go into business for himself.
But even though his dad, Jasper Jowers, had been in construction for years, Josh Jowers didn’t know he would ultimately be in the construction business as well.
Josh Jowers went on to Texas Tech, where he obtained a master’s degree in accounting by 2008. He started working full time in the family business, Destiny Homes, where he is now the chief financial officer.
Since 2009, the first year he was working full time with Destiny Homes, he and his father have overseen the construction of about six to 10 homes per year.
Most of the homes are in the Lubbock area, with many being in the Bacon Crest and Vintage Township subdivisions. But they also do a few in Brownfield, Smyer and other areas of West Texas.
The Bacon Crest area of Lubbock is particularly hot right now, Josh Jowers said, because it is inside Lubbock and is close to a lot of stores and to the Marsha Sharp Freeway.
“I’m happy where I’m at. It’s pretty much where I want to be. I just didn’t know it would be in the construction field,” Josh Jowers said.
Josh Jowers said he has fond memories of his education at Frenship High School, especially of his chemistry teacher, Kim Spicer.
“She taught me just to love life. She taught me how to be successful,” Josh Jowers said. “She’s just full of life herself.”
Josh Jowers said at one time, he thought he might want to be a full-time coach, but he is now the volleyball coach at Trinity Christian School. He played volleyball in college for the men’s club team at Tech. He is also currently active at First Baptist Church in Lubbock.
While he said he enjoys coaching, he also likes being at home more with his small sons, including 4-year-old twins Braydon and Bryson and 1-year-old Brody. He is married to Amber Jowers.
Josh Jowers’ dad, Jasper, said it’s wonderful getting to work so closely with his son.
“I get to spend a lot of days with him,” Jasper Jowers said. He said he is glad Josh and his other two children, Jarisa and Johnathan, have gone to college.
