Zen & Jenn Roofing was established in March of 2016. Being such a young company it was impressive on how fast the company started growing in the Spruce Grove area. Alex and Jenn sat down one day and started discussing the hopes and dreams of their family, and decided that in order for them to focus so much on their family and to continue growing as a company that they should move to Lethbridge. In doing so they’ve been able to set up the foundation for their children’s lives to grow up close to their grandparents. Zen & Jenn Roofing strongly believes in providing a service that every family can benefit from. A new roof installed to manufacturers specs, but also a new relationship that can bless you for years to come.
Alex Roberts Journeyman Roofer
Alex moved him, his wife Jenn, oldest son Broncent (6), and youngest son Liam (2) from the Edmonton area to be closer to their large family here in the surrounding Lethbridge area. Family is the most important motivation for Alex to strive for his best. He quickly put his years of roofing experience, Roofing Journeyman Certificate, and leadership experience from the community to start his own business. Using part of his nickname (Zenner) and his wife’s name, the company of Zen and Jenn Roofing was born. Through his church Alex has went on a two-year mission to South America, role-modeling as a Youth Mentor, and leads a variety of religious classes. Alex attests his personal and business success to practicing these powerful values with daily, and putting his hands to hard-work.
Jay Ellis Partner, Customer Service & Estimates
Jay moved from a small town in Central Alberta to attend Lethbridge College – big city, bright lights! He quickly started seeing friendly faces and enjoyed the ‘small town feel’ of Lethbridge. After graduating from his degree, he set out for three years to travel the world solo. After living in numerous countries teaching English in Asia, and cycling across countries in Africa he returned here to Southern Alberta. It was time to “get to business!”. So, when Jay met Alex they quickly realized they shared the same passion for empowering their community, creating a supportive work environment, and giving their best each day – a great business partnership was formed. Jay most enjoys creating new vision for the company, and making sure each client’s needs are fully met.
