John earned a bachelor's degree in Agriculture Education from Illinois State University and a Master's in Agriculture with an emphasis in Plant and Soil Science/Agronomy from the University of Illinois. He taught Agriculture/Horticulture for 4 years before joining the landscape industry full-time working at a local landscape company as a design build crew member and was rapidly promoted to Maintenance Division Assistant Manager. In 2007, John decided to open his own landscape business which is still known today as JR's Landscape Services. John grew up on a grain and livestock farm and uses his knowledge and expertise about plants and soils to care for clients’ lawns and landscapes with the best management practices that are both beneficial to the plants and the environment. John serves as JR's Operations Manager and is the head of Sales. His passion is making clients smile with high quality maintenance which will provides the home owners with years of enjoyment in their outdoor areas.
Malena also grew up on a grain and livestock farm, where she was taught to work hard and to be a good steward of the land and the environment. She earned a Bachelor's Degree from Illinois State University in both Agribusiness and Agriculture Education with an emphasis in Plant Science/Agronomy and Business Information Systems. Malena discovered her love for flowers and plants in college especially during her Plant Science, Horticulture and Flower Design Classes. She shared her passion for the agriculture/green industry through educating high school students in Agriculture/Horticulture for over 11 years, where she also served as an active FFA Advisor at the local, section, and national levels. While teaching, she spent a few summers working at a local florist and greenhouse company to increase her knowledge and skills. Because family matters most, she left teaching when her kids were young and worked in crop insurance. Here she became a team supervisor where she also assisted in developing new online platforms for data entry. In 2018, she joined John at JR's Landscape Services full-time as the flower designer of customer containers and annual installs. She also serves as the Organizational Development Manager. Her passion is making people smile with her seasonal color installs and teaching others about the green industry. She gives thanks to everyone who has played a role in leading her to her passion, especially her grandmothers who loved to garden.
John and Malena both enjoy spending time outdoors with their family, but most of all they give thanks to the Lord for the blessings He provides for them and their company. They know and understand, they would not be where they are today without the help on the Lord. "For I know the plans I have for you, " declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
