Three Generations of Pest Control Professionals
JP Pest Services began with J. Justin Pestana, known to many as “Jack.” He was a first generation Portuguese immigrant who arrived in New England when he was a small child around 1901. Even as a youngster, he was ambitious to succeed. One of his very first business ventures was selling newspapers and apples on the streets of Boston. His ambition only grew with age and, as a result, he created J.P. Chemical Company – providing pest control services and janitorial chemicals. Jack found success with J.P. Chemical Company and was able to purchase a farm in Amherst, New Hampshire, in 1923, which became the company’s headquarters as well as family home. Jack was a proud husband and father to his wife Gladys, his two daughters Jean and Arlene, and his son Justin Pestana, Jr.
Justin Jr. graduated from Purdue University in 1955, where he studied the emerging field of urban entomology. He showed great potential as a businessman and leader at a young age. In 1958, after fulfilling his active duty in the military, he returned to what was J.P. Chemical Company at the time to work alongside his sister Arlene and brother-in-law Ralph with a handful of employees. Justin Jr. combined his scientific knowledge of pest control and his leadership abilities, which proved to be a successful mix; his skills and knowledge enabled him to continue his family’s company with success.
Following Jack’s untimely passing in 1964, Justin Jr. took over the daily operations of J.P Chemical. Justin implemented a new level of standards in customer service and employee values, which are still the foundation of the company today.
Prior to Justin’s passing away in 2005, he was able to witness and enjoy seeing his sons Joe and Chris work their way up through the organization with the same passion, drive, and commitment that he had. Brothers Joe and Chris recognized the need for J.P. Chemical Company to undergo a re-branding to better reflect the services they provided to their customers. In 2007, J.P. Chemical Company became JP Pest Services.
Currently, Joe is acting President of JP Pest Services, and Chris holds the title of VP of Sales and Marketing. Together, the brothers are carrying on their family’s hard work and dedication of providing New England homes and business with professional pest control solutions.
