Born a visionary, Scott had dreams of growing the family business. After working directly with his father for several years, and learning all the tricks of the trade, Scott decided to branch out on his own and grow Sheldon and Sons into what it has become today. He graduated from University of Maryland Baltimore County with a degree in economics, which he paid for by serving his country in the national guard. Scott is happily married for over 25 years to his wife and is a father of four children and two grandchildren. Sheldon & Sons, Inc. has grown significantly over the years but has remained a family owned and operated business. With 14 trucks and 24 employees, they are able to handle everything from small one-room painting projects and luxury homes, to entire office buildings.
Ernie Sheldon started his painting business in 1972. Of Irish decent, he moved to this country in 1962 and came by his trade naturally, as he is the son of a painter. He brought his son, Scott, into the business when Scott was 14 years old. Ernie saw how his sons business was growing and decided to work for him in 1996. A spry and healthy senior, Ernie continues to work in the family run business. If you hear an Irish accent on one of your next projects, that’s Ernie. Be sure to say hello!
When you enter the offices of Sheldon & Sons, the the first thing to greet you is the office cat, Baby! Nancy is an extreme cat lover with 5 cats of her own. No joke! However, Nancy’s dream is to do stand-up comedy. She has been with Sheldon & Sons for 12 years and loves her job because she gets paid to tell men where to go and what to do.
Jen started as Office Manager in 2015 after everything fell perfectly, yet unexpectedly, into place to start a new career at Sheldon & Sons. After getting proficient in her original role, Jen started learning more about the business, asking a lot of questions, and taking on more responsibilities. Now, Jen's role and responsibilities continue to grow and have expanded to include all proposals and contracts, billing, A/R and A/P, marketing and she collaborates with Scott on many different projects and business plans. The 'family business' aspect continues as Jen's son spent a summer doing power washing with the company and will do a carpentry internship here as well. Jen and her son split their time between her childhood home in southern MD that they share with her father, and her home in Florida where Jen's husband Mike, and their beloved rescue pitties Chance and Dreama, live year-round.
