About Us

Left to Right: Kevin Craig, Jesse Kaposi, Bob Semple and Emily Owings Kaposi.  

And the dogs: Luna and Kanigo.

Our founder and director, Jesse Owings Kaposi, has been salvaging since the age of 9. “It started with picking up the produce trimmings for my rabbits when I was a child.” His efforts expanded into industrial salvage after working for numerous municipalities.

Kevin Craig is a remarkable advisor and knower of all things: Construction, Science, Legal and everything in between. 

Bob Semple has outstanding fix-it knowledge. No job is too small: Persistence and patience with everything he works on. 

Emily Owings Kaposi is the resident artist and has the aesthetic vision that this organization needs. The principles of the underlying beauty are all in her mind.
