About Us

Jack Russell Home Services was started in 2005 by owner, Jack Russell Thompson. Raised in SW Washington, An Army Veteran of Iraq, and Wildlife Biologist from Washington State University.

Jack Originally Started it as a Wildlife Damage Management business focused on removing problem animals such as raccoons and opossums from people's homes.

After a very short time focused on animal handling, Jack realized that fixing homes to make them animal proof was not only a more effective method of dealing with the problem, but was more cost effective for clients in the long run, and a better business model.

After a few more years of solving wildlife problems by home fortification and habitat modification, and going through several employees who never seemed to want to stick around long enough to really learn the job, and facing the seasonality of the work, Jack had to come up with a way to keep quality people employed reliably year round.

Since he was already engaged in many home improvement tasks necessary to keep animals out, such as siding, foundation, fencing, deck modifications, landscape modifications, crawspace restorations, gutter repairs, insulation work, and roofing work, Jack decided that he might as well start doing those types of jobs independent of the animal calls.

So, he started hiring a crew of experienced home improvement technicians to help do that work.
