About Us

Meet Our Team

Nathan France | Co-Owner

To know Nathan is to understand that he is a glass-half-full kind of guy. Laser-focused and unwilling to work inside the box; investing his energy into what can be done, not stalling at can’t. This is not to say that he keeps his head in the clouds (except maybe when scaling mountains in the Himalayas), but striking the perfect balance between keeping it real and pushing for more.

Levi Troy | Co-Owner

Guided by his faith, family, and love for his country, Levi Troy is a man who knows where his priorities lie. Born under the expansive skies of Montana, he found his home in Minnesota in 1998, where he has since built a legacy. With a construction career spanning over 25 years, Levi has witnessed firsthand how some companies in the construction industry placed profits over their clients. This disheartening reality was a catalyst, compelling him to build a business that would prioritize the needs of its customers. His experiences range from commercial flat roofing, shingles, gutters, to roles of increasing leadership responsibility including sales manager, VP, and now, owner. In 2016 T&J was born from this desire for change. More than just a company, T&J represents Levi’s commitment to providing a 5-star service where customers are treated like family and service quality is the norm, not the exception. His vision for T&J was not just about building a successful business, but also about creating a platform that supports the livelihood of many families. Levi’s relentless pursuit of excellence, combined with his deep industry knowledge and experience, are the cornerstones of T&J’s ethos. His leadership reflects his personal values and his ambition to build a company that delivers more than just profit, but also a strong community of satisfied customers and employees. Outside of work, Levi is an enthusiastic outdoorsman, often found immersed in nature, with a fishing rod or hunting gear in hand, relishing the thrill of the wild. And when winter blankets his surroundings, he welcomes the opportunity to travel, seeking warmer climates to continue his outdoor adventures.

Ben Cox | Project Manager

Since then, he graduated from Ranger School and served 5 deployments between Iraq and Afghanistan in support of both the OEF and OIF. Additionally, Ben served 14 deployments as a High Threat Diplomatic Security Specialist, supporting The Provisional Reconstruction Team stationed at the US Embassy in Baghdad.

His hands-on work running a remodeling company showcases his passion for practical, tangible projects. When not contributing his skills professionally, Doug extends his love for fishing into community service, regularly participating in events that offer veterans the opportunity to enjoy fishing.

Travis Jarosiewicz | In Loving Memory

Travis was more than just a colleague; he was a dear friend to everyone at T&J. Known for his infectious humor and charisma, Travis had the gift of making every conversation feel like a burst of sunshine – filled with laughter and warmth. A dedicated and skilled plumber, his knowledge of the trades was exceptional, and he was always ready to lend his expertise to those in need. Travis loved life and shared his passions with those around him. From mountain biking with friends, tinkering with cars, motorcycles, and trucks, to just being on the lake or soaking up the sun, Travis embraced joy in every form. His love for people was evident in everything he did, and he never hesitated to come to anyone’s rescue. The number of lives he touched and influenced positively is a testament to his big-heartedness. We tragically lost Travis on December 17th, 2021. While his absence is deeply felt, his spirit and love of life continue to inspire us every day. We remember Travis as a beacon of laughter, generosity, and kindness, and his memory lives on in the many lives he touched. Rest In Peace, our dear friend Travis: July 3, 1988 ~ December 17, 2021.
We miss you dearly.
