About John Isom
John Isom Fence is a family owned business which began as a part-time college job. While attending school at Abilene Christian University and playing football for the Wildcats, John Isom began working with a competent local carpenter building fences. In 1977, after completing a degree in Agri-business, he and his wife Jean purchased full ownership of the company, naming it John Isom Fence. John is a quality craftsman and his work is recognized throughout the Abilene area.
As John’s reputation for quality fencing at a fair price grew, he made a life decision to emphasize quality versus quantity. He is involved in every fence project from beginning to end. He expects each fence to be built as if he were building it for himself. He is proud to put his name on every fence project and customer satisfaction is his ultimate goal.
Employees of Isom Fence have traditionally been students, working their way through college. We believe that we are not just building fences but providing an opportunity for young men to learn skills that will last them a lifetime. Former Isom employees are now accountants, business owners, writers, preachers, doctors, lawyers and fence builders. We are confident that when you have an Isom built fence you will appreciate not only the workmanship but the workers themselves as they perform their duties in a profession manner.
Poet, Robert Frost says, “good fences make good neighbors” and we believe John Isom Fence company contributes to the well being of our community. John and Jean are active members of both Highland Church of Christ and Bible Study Fellowship. His hobbies are running and gardening and one of his proudest moments was when his daughter Jordan, at the age of 8, could identify and name fence designs when driving through town.
At John Isom Fence we stand behind our work and do not consider our job complete until you are satisfied.
