The late John Prevost Sr., who worked for his son John Prevost Jr. for a time, was employed by Four Star Construction and Broadmoor Homes. Following in the footsteps of his general contractor father, John Prevost Jr., who had done tenant improvement work for The Koll Co. for many years, decided to strike out on his own and in 1989 opened up a small shop in Sorrento Mesa. He continues to be active in the business.
Now, even while it is Jamie Prevost's turn to run the company, he is grooming his 21-year-old brother Taylor to take the reins when Jamie retires.
Jamie Prevost, who started working for his father in 1990, said the company stayed small for the next decade, but that kept the firm busy and responsive.
