About Us

Oregon Trail Remodeling was founded by Jeremy Parsons and Marc Lisak in 2009 bringing together the business experience and construction expertise of both men. Their objective in forming the company was to provide quality construction at reasonable prices while meeting the requirements of their clients. They focus their efforts on making clients happy by providing very high quality at reasonable prices and they keep the lines of communication open with their clients through the entire construction process.


Jeremy Parsons

Photo of Lake Oswego Home Remodeling ProfessionalJeremy is a graduate from West Linn High School in 1993 and has a degree in Business Management from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. He has been a business owner in food and other service businesses before settling into the construction and remodels field. He began his own remodeling business in 2002 and joined forces with Marc Lisak in 2009 to form Oregon Trail Remodeling. Jeremy brings a good background in construction knowledge from electrical to finish carpentry. Jeremy's philosophy is that a construction business will flourish when customers and contractor openly communicate and have a common expectation about the job, timetable and cost. Oregon Trail has adopted this philosophy and we strive to avoid surprises while keeping the costs down and the quality high. Jeremy does his best to answer his phone or to return calls quickly when a customer calls to for an update, which is rare in the remodeling construction field. Jeremy has always enjoyed working with a variety of people and loves to watch customers' reactions as their vision becomes reality through the various stages of construction. When Jeremy is not spending time with his wife Debbie and their four kids, he enjoys biking, being a Cub Scout Pack Leader and collecting various collectibles. His sports card collection is extensive!
