In 1978, Robi Jalnos started a plumbing business in his mother's garage and named the business Steve's Plumbing to honor
the memory of his father, Stephan Jalnos, who was a Holocaust survivor and plumber.
Robi's wife, Eileen, who obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Texas at Austin and with
the experience she gained at USAA Investment Management Co., joined the company in 1980.
