Felix Mestas was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. He graduated from Jefferson High School in Edgewater in 2001 and went to work in commercial construction. Shortly after joining the workforce, he found JR Butler. Starting as a laborer in the field, he quickly learned to love the world of commercial glazing for its ability to combine architectural beauty with engineering and performance. During this time, the company started its journey into large-scale unitizing as well as Lean construction and manufacturing, both of which Felix is passionate about. Felix is involved in several leadership groups which focus on providing life and leadership skills to employees who might otherwise have not had access to them. Felix is also on advisory committees for Pickens Tech and Emily Griffith, where he has been working to help steer high school students towards a career in commercial construction.
