J.A Sergio & Sons, INC was founded in 1988 by John and Tom Sergio. The elder Sergio, John had owned another construction company in Wisconsin, where he had previous lived with his wife Fran, and six children. Upon moving to Tennessee John had decided that he wanted to semi retire, however after he moved he and his two sons started remodeling a house and the word quickly spread that he had a background in construction.
Tom had always known that he wanted to own a construction business and was constantly helping his dad John whenever he could. Upon graduation from high school he wanted to go right into construction. His parents on the other hand felt that he should get a college degree and learn a few other traits first. So Tom enrolled in Tennessee Tech University where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in finance. While he was there he also received his real estate licensee and sold houses as well as worked on a farm milking cows.
Upon graduation he still had this desire to own a construction company so he sat down with his dad and began working out the details and J.A Sergio & Sons was formed. Later in the 1990’s the next brother to join was Jim. Jim had been driving a semi-truck and had always loved working with big equipment, but did not necessarily want to do construction. After working with his father and brother for a few years Jim was asked to join the company as a partner. However he would be in charge of all the heavy equipment, ground work, concrete and other prep work.
A few years later two more brothers joined the team. Don and Dave, However their heart was not for construction. They went on to start Calf Killer Brewing Company which is also located in Sparta, TN
Today the company is ran by Tom, Jim, and John, however you will find other members of the family working there as well. Fran currently runs the office with her daughter Joanne. You will also find a cousin, son in law, and uncles working at the company as well. J.A Sergio is a family owned company
