David has worked in the roofing business for more than 20 years, but his participation in construction and hard work have been a huge part of his life for even longer. Born in San Angelo and raised in Bronte, Texas, David learned early the importance of hard work from his father and great grandfather on the family farm. Bronte was a very close-knit community where David excelled in sports and learned the importance of family and friends.

He attended Angelo State and Tarleton State Universities as well as UT at San Antonio studying music as his major. After college, while doing ministry and service work with YWAM in Tyler TX, David felt a call to return to the workplace. He began taking on various contracting work until his brother invited him to join him in the roofing business.

David serves as President and CEO of Ja-Mar Roofing & Sheet Metal and still enjoys a wonderful relationship with the company’s founder, James McKinney, and his wife Marlyn. James continues to serve as a senior consultant to the company.
