Born into a family of plumbers, Jesse Lanyon took over Blue Sky Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric in 2019. His great-grandfather was a registered Colorado Master Plumber in 1916. Jesse’s father opened Blue Sky Plumbing and Heating in 1989, and moved the business and the family to the foothills in Golden.

Revenue has almost tripled in four years. “I placed a strong emphasis on not being afraid of growth and ensuring I was bringing in the best talent available to assist in that growth,” Lanyon said. He started an electrical division in 2021. He added that much of Blue Sky’s success comes from its ability and willingness to perform many different types of jobs that some competitors avoid due to complexity or technical difficulty.

The company has its own training center, and works to turn young, ambitious apprentices into lead technicians and provide them with a career. Blue Sky works with MaxFund Animal Adoption Center, making sure the facilities have good plumbing, heating, cooling, and electric systems to keep the animals and humans comfortable.
