J.Z. Owner/operator, Jaime Zagazeta, founded J.Z. Star Flooring. He worked in white collar jobs for over a decade. As a young 19-year-old father, Jaime worked full-time and went to school full-time to provide for his family and build a better future for them.
Jaime has been involved in giving exceptional customer service since he was a teenager and paid his way through college working as a server and bartender at high-end restaurants. The restaurant business provided Jaime with a hands-on customer service experience that college could not offer. Eventually, he obtained an MBA and worked in various middle management and advertising sales positions.
During the 2007-2008 financial crisis, Jaime was laid off and moved back to Fort Lauderdale from San Francisco. Consequently, this was a very humbling experience which saw Jaime work for his brother-in-law at his flooring business. Jaime quickly learned the trade and enjoyed bringing joy to his customers, through flooring, and set out to become an entrepreneur.
