Jonathan Smith was born in Atlanta, GA and at an early age his family moved to St. Simons Island, GA where he grew up and attended school at Glynn Academy. He got his first taste of construction during high school summers, when he worked with his uncle and cousin building several spec homes in North Georgia. Mostly he walked around with a broom and shovel cleaning up messes that his uncle and cousin made. If he was lucky he got fed lunch and took a few bucks home with him at the end of the day. He learned about hard work and the not so glamorous side of the world of home building.
After high school, he enlisted in the US Marines and attended boot camp at Parris Island, SC, graduating as Company honor graduate. He went on to serve honorably with the Marine Security Force Battalion, Atlantic. Mr. Smith Attended the local community college in Brunswick, GA after being honorably discharged.
