Aside from the founder and president, Jon “JC” Wisner remains Frederick Fence’s most-seasoned employee, having joined Charlie Powers as the installer just as the company formed in 1982. As the company grew from its original small trailer to its expansive corporate headquarters and lumberyard on Tilco Drive, Jon’s responsibilities increased to where he is now Frederick Fence’s Operations Manager. In his role, Jon oversees all inventory and operations. He also acts as the company’s safety manager.
Born and raised in the Frederick area, Jon began his career as a painter and carpenter. Jon credits his joining Frederick Fence with a bit of perfect timing in that his former boss announced the closing of his business just as his newfound friend, Charlie Powers asked him if he was interested in helping him out by installing a “few fences.” That small request evolved into a long-term commitment to where Jon humbly admits that his technical skills and passion for building things may have had “something to do with the company’s success.” At Frederick Fence, every employee will tell you that Jon remains one of the reasons why the company continually sets itself apart from the competition.

Over the years, Jon’s vision for quality service remains fully intact as part of Jon’s strongest contributions to the company are manuals that ensure consistent construction and installation on every fence solution the company sells. For Jon, the most exciting part of being with the Frederick Fence family are the challenges associated with making the client wishes turn into some amazing projects.
