Jess H. “Jack” Boles founded JACK BOLES PARKING SERVICE in 1946. Mr. Boles who was a Dallas County native served in the U.S. Marine Corps in World War II, and returned as a twice-decorated war veteran. His distinguished military career provided the opportunity for him to establish this company as a part-time venture. Mr. Boles had originally begun employment as a valet parking attendant in 1936 at the original Texas State Fair Exposition.
Before his enlistment in military service our company founder had worked in parking attendant services in garage structures for several years in downtown Dallas. During the development of our company Jack Boles also managed The Biltmore Garage in downtown Dallas, and the parking attendant services for the Braniff Jet Rail at Dallas Love Field.
The company's earliest accounts included services at Brook Hollow Golf Club, Dallas Country Club, and The Northwood Club. In addition, for the last fifty-nine years, our valet attendants have provided services for numerous private residential functions, and most of the charity and social balls in Dallas. The present Owners and Executive Managers of our company average about 20 years each with the company. The company’s leadership includes the third generation of the Boles’ family as major contributors.
Our employee/owners and other long-term associates have secured the perpetuation of our institution, and they are committed to continue to manage our business professionally with service excellence for many years. Of our current employee list, we presently employee 100 Full-Time Employees who have the following tenure: approximately 50% have been employed less than 10 years, 25% more than 10 years with this Company including 15 employees who have been active for more than 20 years.
