The One with Adam Feriend about Opera and Construction
Meet Adam Feriend. Many Parker County residents know Adam from his countless volunteer roles including the WISD school board. Adam is an owner/COO of the 60mm+ construction company named JRJ Construction Inc. but started out his post-college degree with plans on singing Opera professionally. He has navigated the death of all the owners of JRJ soon after he joined and walked through the 2008/9 recession. Adam spoke honestly about the difficulties of being in the leadership role but how God has faithfully carried them through every situation. We were privileged to ask Adam very pointed questions about how to operate a business with “all-in” Christian values and the impact it has on the business.
