Zack Jester- The Grand Poobah
Zachary Jester began his career as a woodworker right out of college. When he graduated from University of Delaware he moved to Columbus and ran a small shop making store fixtures, most notably for Coleman Spas, and signage for retail establishments. He moved to Richmond in 2001 and spent a couple years honing his skills as a woodworker as well as rehabbing houses in the Church Hill area. He was then convinced to leave his contracting business to come work for Beckstoffers & Sons Millwork and run the casework department. When Beckstoffers shut down in Dec. 2007, he made the necessary machinery purchases to launch Van Jester Woodworks.
