Life can often seem random, but sometimes those chance occurrences are the ones that stick – as is the case with Stone Creek Custom Homes’ two founders, Jason Gale and Jesse Pigott. We thought you might like to learn a little bit more about these two gentlemen, as they’re not the kind of guys that talk much about themselves. They’re usually far more interested in their clients, the work they’re doing, and of course, their families.
They first met over a decade ago when Jason was selling land, and Jesse bought a lot from him out in Timberwood Park. Both born and raised in San Antonio – Jason went to Castle Hills First Baptist High School while Jesse attended Clark High School – they also shared (and still do!) a mutual appreciation for hunting and fishing.
Jason: I was building my house with another friend of mine, and it wasn’t going as well as I thought it could have. At the same time, Jesse was building his own home with another of friend of his. I had a lot in Timberwood so I approached him about building a spec house, which we sold before we were even done framing.
Jesse: It happened by chance, but one project led to another and it snowballed. That’s basically how this whole thing got going.
Jesse originally worked in sales in a completely different industry, but had aspirations of owning his own company.
Jesse: We love making someone else’s dreams a reality. Seeing something start from a scratch pad design and evolve into something you’re living in is pretty cool.
As for home life, Jason and Jesse are very family-oriented and love spending time with their families. Jason balances his love for flying, fishing and hunting and family time. He has a passion for showing the kids his love for the outdoors. With a lovely wife, a daughter and two sons, life is busy. Some of their favorite memories are at the beach in Florida and Port Aransas.
If Jason and the boys had it their way, they would spend every moment at the ranch or fishing in Port Mansfield, hopefully catching swordfish. Fishing usually means catch and release, but the family gets super excited when it’s served on the dinner table. As the youngest says, “I like that swordfish chicken!”
Jason’s family also run two fireworks stands around the Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve.
Jason: It’s more of a hobby. My daughter loves it. She takes charge, helps with inventory, pricing, and sales. It’s a great way for her to learn how to run a business for herself. She basically does it all, and I’m just there to help.
Jesse, who remarried a year ago to a beautiful lady, now has a family of five kids. Jesse also enjoys hunting and shares that passion with his kids. His family loves to spend time together at their home away from home at lake LBJ, swimming, riding jet skis and just relaxing.
Jesse: We go there to eat, drink and listen to good music. It’s one of our favorite spots.
