River City Six – Beau Jepson
Meet Beau Jepson, project manager for Perry Reid Construction (PRC; buildprc.com).
Tell us a little about your business.
The business is family-oriented and we’re a tight knit group. We work hard to exceed our clients’ expectations and we do anything we can to satisfy them. I’m thankful to work for a company with such a strong moral foundation, one that loves to give back to the community.
How did you get started in the business?
I’ve been with PRC for a little over one year. Perry Reid Construction was founded in May 2017 and I joined the team about seven months later. I graduated in 2014 from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with a degree in construction management. I was connected with the current vice president of PRC through a different company, and that connection lead me to where I am now with PRC.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
Every day presents a different challenge/learning experience. I would say my biggest challenge thus far was making the leap back into the construction industry after I dabbled with some other industries.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
Completing over a dozen projects in five years’ time.
Tell us a little about your family.
I grew up in central Nebraska. My parents still live in Grand Island and I have a sister who lives in Kearney. I’ve got a son who is almost two years old and I’m getting married in June of this year!
What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?
The birth of my son.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
I coach junior wrestling for the Lincoln Warriors Wrestling Club, so my weekends are pretty busy with wrestling meets in surrounding towns.
Who inspires you?
My fiancé. She means the world to me—she inspires me to be myself and enjoy life.
What is your favorite quote or the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
The classic Michael Jordan quote: “You miss 100% of the shots you never take.”
If you could choose only one descriptive word to be remembered as, what would it be?
If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Either the ability to read minds or to know all the information I need in the moment I need it.
Which talent would you most like to have?
To be better at golfing.
If you could choose any other profession to be successful in, what would it be?
What local non-profit organization(s) are you passionate about or involved with, and are there any special reasons why?
The Lincoln Warriors Wrestling Club. I know how much my own coaches meant to me growing up, and I feel like this is a good way for me to give back and help other kids grow in life.
What is your favorite book or the last good book you read?
Most of my reading material is made up of building and safety code books. Otherwise, I am reading marketing reports.
What is your favorite movie?
If you could have dinner with one famous person from the past or present, who would it be?
