Ed Barger graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering and from Southern Methodist University with a Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering before most of you were born. After over 25 years in the Aerospace business, it was time to move on and start his own business. Having worked his way through high school and college in the electrical supply business, it seemed natural to begin an electrical supply company… and Landscape Lighting Supply was born. Ed serves as the staff engineer – designing fixtures, LED’s, shields, brackets, tree mounts, and other hardware that needs to be custom manufactured. Another one of his job titles is “Manager of Strategery”. When not working, Ed can be found on his motorcycle, where he has ridden in 40 of our 50 states, and is making plans for the remaining 10 states in the next few years.
JD Young has been in the lighting industry for over 25 years, where he has spent the last 22 years strictly in landscape lighting. JD’s training has included factory tours and seminars from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. His experience has given JD the knowledge and skill to help the customer through all phases of a landscape lighting project, from fixture choice to the final design. JD and his wife, Stacey, live in Dallas and are the proud parents of their son Brandon, dog Jack, and 2 cats – Fatso & Maggie (feel free to harass JD about his overweight cat). When not at work, you can find JD on the golf course, sipping margaritas with his wife at his favorite Mexican restaurants, or cheering Brandon on the sidelines from one of his numerous sporting events.
