James J. Smithey (but everyone calls me J.J.)

What is your position within your company?
I am president and owner of Frost Roofing Inc., Wapakoneta, Ohio.

What is the most unusual roofing project you've performed?
Recently, we worked on a roof at the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, Ohio. The 70- by 50-foot area we worked on surrounds a skylight and is positioned over the museum's Picasso exhibit.

Why did you become a part of the roofing industry?
I never really considered anything else. Frost Roofing has been family owned and operated since 1928. I always hoped and planned to carry on the legacy.
