Your facility maintenance team.
The School District of Flagler County would like to take this opportunity to thank John Bugg and his team for the quick response and meeting the needs of the School District… so quickly after the storm (Hurricane Matthew) to access the roof damage and potential health and safety risks… A fantastic job was done and we are truly grateful

Meet Our JEBCO Team
John Bugg co-founded JEBCO with Bob Knott in 2019. A Durham, NC, native, John graduated with a degree in business from Appalachian State University. He has a strong background in Sales that began in Raleigh in the beer industry. From there he migrated to Sales in the construction industry taking him to Charlotte, Columbia (SC), Chattanooga, and ultimately Jacksonville.
John has worked extensively (and intensively!) with Facility Managers regarding any and all building envelope issues. On the job with his forensic tool belt, he is the Sherlock Holmes of “leaks!” Add to that his in-depth knowledge of materials, and John & Company can diagnose the problem and design the solution before deploying JEBCO’s well-trained “attack” crew to implement it.
He lives here with his wife, Kelly, their two daughters, and big dog, Elroy.
Bob Knott, P.E.
Bob Knott co-founded JEBCO with John. His resume is rock-solid! He graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from Florida International University. For several years beginning in 1965, he worked at the Kennedy Space Center, involved with the Gemini, Apollo and Skylab programs. He logged 33 years in Jacksonville with Anheuser-Busch as Senior Plant Engineer, responsible for just about every aspect of operating an 8 million-barrel brewery. Upon retiring from Anheuser-Busch, he spent four years with Nassau County as Director of Facilities Maintenance. And so it was “natural” in 2016 to form his own consulting company. “Robert M. Knott, P.E., Facilities Management Consulting” can rightfully boast 45 years in facilities engineering! Bob and John have worked together for the past 10 years.
A talented graphic artist and inveterate “tinkerer,” Bob and his wife, Rose, live happily in Callahan on their “animal farm” alongside their chickens, cows, donkeys, rabbits, and canines.
Kevin, our Operations Manager, counts 37 years in the construction industry. He started in metal roofing with Commercial Roof Decks before joining Frank Christian with East Coast Systems, a highly regarded metal roofing contractor in Jacksonville. There followed a successful tenure with ASM, one of the largest metal roofing contractors in Florida, during which Kevin oversaw a $20 million job at the Orlando Airport. The Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Association (FRSA) recognized Kevin with the ‘Specialty Metal Roofer of the Year’ award…back-to-back…in 2017 and 2018. With Kevin on board, JEBCO wins!
A Hopewell, Virginia, native, Kevin has lived in Florida now for 37 years…smart to move to Florida…smarter to move to JEBCO!.
Greg Bartholomew ,
Greg Bartholomew is a Rochester, NY, native with a degree from SUNY Brockport…not sure if he’s shifted allegiance yet from the Bills to the Jaguars! He has a solid 18 years in the roofing industry, and has worked with everything from tile, metal, cedar shake, slate, shingle, and multiple flat roofing systems…for starters. Greg is adept at wearing multiple hats which makes him a perfect fit for JEBCO! In fact we’re giving him the title, “Many Hats!” He moved to Jacksonville in 1996, and lives here with his funky little dog named Keith.
Lead Field Manager
Ben was born in St. Augustine but raised in Jacksonville! For the apprentices in our program, he is especially valued as a lead trainer for the up-and-comers. His resume includes a culinary degree together with 23 years in roofing. Low-sloped, single-ply, and multi-ply asphalt roofing systems are his specialties. Ribs or roofing? Ben’s our Man!
Lead Field Manager
Bobby, from Middleburg, FL, has to his credit 15 years in metal roofing. He has assured his niche in the industry, having mastered it all…new construction, replacements, repairs, and maintenance. Our field tech, Bobby, is a people person, so building trust and forging personal relationships with our customers come naturally to him. He lives with his wife and three children…guess where? Middleburg!
Soon To Be Lead
Sean was an “apprentice” new hire in 2022. Tried and tough-as-nails (pun unintended!), he is quickly climbing the leadership ladder…on the fast track to become a lead field tech. Sean lives in McClenny and is on another fast track…soon to become father to a baby girl!
Kelly grew up in Snow Hill, NC, the daughter of a high school principal and elementary school teacher. With an education degree from Queens (Charlotte) in 2005, she taught 2nd grade in Charlotte for 8 years and then at RPDS in Jacksonville for 7 years. She retired from teaching to join JEBCO in 2022 to catch all balls thrown in her direction. She is a “good catch!”
John thought so, too, as they married in 2013. You can count on Kelly to keep all cylinders running and all at the same time!.
We stand strong with you to get you long-term profitability, reliability, safety -- and ultimately peace of mind.
