Our Story

From the beginning, Yellow Rose Painting has been about relationships. It started in early 2021 with a blossoming friendship between our owners, Jason and Mason. Shortly after meeting each other, the two felt called to create something special together.

Mason had previously founded our DFW-based sister company, Spray Tex Painting at a young age, and built it into one of the most successful painting companies in the metroplex. Jason, who had lived in Waco his entire life, felt that what STP was offering was much needed in the Central Texas market.

And so, Yellow Rose Painting was born.

It means we are thoughtful in our evolution, ensuring that every step we take is aimed at providing a better experience to our customers and team. We know that each of us has our own individual pace and capacity for personal growth, so we do not expect on-demand progress.

Effective listening at the heart of success

What it means: We listen to uncover what you truly need. Listening is about more than just hearing your words—it's about ensuring you feel genuinely heard and respected. Feeling understood is more important than who is right or wrong.

What it doesn't mean: Listening does not mean “the customer is always right.” It involves a respectful exchange where we take responsibility for our contributions to any misunderstandings, and gently encourage customers to recognize their contribution as well. Our goal is to foster true partnerships, where we all work together towards effective solutions.

Our Team

Jason Conners, Co-Founder & President

Jason Conners

Co-Founder & President

Born and raised in Waco, Texas, Jason Conners is a local through and through. A proud product of Reicher Catholic High School, Jason's adventurous spirit led him to the University of Arkansas, where he secured an undergraduate degree in Accounting & Finance, further honing his business acumen with an MBA.

Growing up, Jason witnessed first-hand the good, the bad, and the ugly of entrepreneurship. His father, the owner of a family mining company in Central Texas, served as an example of hard work, perserverence, and how to take pride in work done right.

However, Jason's professional journey wasn't a linear path. He ventured into the world of Fortune 500 giants, including household names like Deloitte, Colgate, and Reckitt Benckiser. But amidst the high-rises and the fast-paced corporate world, Jason soon realized that being a small cog in a vast machine wasn't his calling.

In 2021, heeding the entrepreneurial spirit inherited from his father and fueled by his own experiences, Jason returned to his roots in Waco and co-founded Yellow Rose Painting. His endeavor was more than just a business; it was a passion project aimed at breathing life into homes and spaces.

Away from the spreadsheets and paint palettes, Jason is an adventurer and poet at heart. Whether writing poetry, mountain biking on rugged trails, skiing down snowy slopes, or enjoying a friendly game of pickleball, his zest for life is evident.

However, ask Jason what he treasures most about Yellow Rose Painting, and he'd point towards two things: the deep-rooted relationships he fosters with clients and the phenomenal team he's proud to work alongside. For him, it's more than just painting walls; it's about creating memories, building community, and leaving a lasting impression.

Jeff has over a decade of experience in the home service space, specializing in window and door installation.

In 2022, destiny steered him to Waco, where family ties introduced him to the world of Yellow Rose Painting. It was his son, Kevin's outstand experience with the company (as a customer!) that led Jeff to meet the enthusiastic Jason Conners. A meeting of minds, passion, and shared values paved the way for Jeff's new role as a Project Manager.

When he's not overseeing a project, Jeff immerses himself in the outdoors, showcasing his precision in target shooting and unwinding with a bit of fishing. But, what truly defines Jeff is his innate ability to connect. Building genuine relationships with customers, understanding their aspirations, and translating them into tangible results is what Jeff cherishes most about his role.

Having lived in an array of places and with a myriad of experiences under his belt, from soaring the skies in a Black Hawk to adding color to homes in Waco, Jeff Jackson is more than just a Project Manager.
