Last Thanksgiving, while many people were fretting over holiday gift lists and traffic, E.J. Jaxtimer was relishing the 15th anniversary of his family’s annual touch football game. Every year, the Jaxtimer family faces off on the rolling lawn of their Osterville home for the ballgame. It’s vitally important to Jaxtimer, the owner of E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc., that he is not just present, but sweating, running, and laughing with the rest of the family.
The family connection is big for Jaxtimer, who has been overseeing construction, landscaping, and custom millwork at his Hyannis-based business for almost 35 years. Now, the family is getting more involved in the business, and Jaxtimer couldn’t be happier.
“We really have the whole family involved,” Jaxtimer says. Terry, E.J.’s wife, is back in the office full-time, working with her husband. The Jaxtimers’ oldest son, Jonathan, just graduated from Roger Williams University and will soon be a project manager. Jamie, now a student at Curry College, works with his dad on school breaks. The youngest Jaxtimer son, Sam, also works on breaks. “We’re a family business, which is very exciting and rewarding,” Jaxtimer says.
