After a career that has spanned 45 years with the W. S. Bellows
Construction Corp. as Vice President of Estimating, Jack Roberts is
retiring and looking forward to spending time on his farm and family. When Roberts began his career with W. S. Bellows Construction
Corp. in 1970, he had just earned a bachelor's degree in civil engineering from Texas
A&M. He was hired first as an intern by Jack Bellows and started full time, progressing
through the company from Project Engineer to Vice President of Estimating in 1995.
Roberts recalled one of his favorite projects: the Marathon Oil Tower where he served
as superintendent for the first time. He credits two of his most influential mentors,
George Bellows and Warren Bellows, Jr., for giving him not just a job, but a career in
which he looked forward to going to work every day.
Roberts leaves his legacy in good hands: Brent Miller who has been with the company
for 19 years and is currently Chief Estimator will take over in Roberts' capacity.
Jack and his wife, Wanda, plan on spending more time with their three sons and
extended family. Congratulations on reaching this significant milestone and on a successful career!
