Veteran-Owned JDog Junk Removal & Hauling Now Servicing Rockwall

Rockwall, Texas – November 9, 2015 – JDog Junk Removal & Hauling, a rapidly growing national company on a mission to offer business ownership opportunities to veterans and their family members, is now servicing the Rockwall area. JDog franchisees provide junk removal and hauling services to both residential and commercial customers, delivering service the military way: with respect, integrity and trust.

The new JDog will service Rockwall and the surrounding Dallas suburbs, and is owned by Mesquite resident Steve Wilson. Wilson is a 19-year military veteran, having served in the Army, National Guard and Air Force. After enlisting in the Army in 1992 and completing his first tour, Wilson was reassigned to the Texas National Guard and then commissioned as 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Force. While serving as Electronic Warfare Officer and Instructor in the B-52 Stratofortress, Wilson accrued more than 1000 flying and 500 combat hours in OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM, OPERATION SOUTHERN WATCH and OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM. Wilson instructed in Air Force training schools prior to receiving Honorable Discharge in Sept. 2011.

“I wanted to own a business that embraced the military ethos that was instilled in me by my dad, a 27-year Air Force veteran, as well as one that would give veterans the opportunity to work together to make an impact within our community,” said Wilson. “Through JDog, I have the chance to provide the Dallas area with a valuable service that is built upon a strong set of military values.”

The franchise is the fourth JDog location in Texas. Wilson hopes to provide local veterans with jobs in the coming years as his business expands in the area. A grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Veterans Day, Nov. 11 at Patriot Paws located at 254 Ranch Trail in Rockwall at 3 p.m.

JDog awards franchises exclusively to military veterans and their family members. Franchise owners operate easily recognizable, camouflage vehicles and trailers and wear military-style uniforms. JDog recycles and repurposes a substantial amount of the material they pick up. The Philadelphia-based company works closely with local and national organizations like Goodwill and Habitat for Humanity, as well as local schools, churches and hospitals to donate useful items to those in need.

“The JDog team is supported by an experienced board of advisors, including decorated military officers and business professionals, who understand the unique attributes and qualifications of veterans,” said Jerry Flanagan, founder of JDog. “Every operations member of the JDog team has served our country, and now we’re banding together to serve their local communities.”
