Meet The Team
Founder and Chief Solution Provider
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to start my own business. I never knew what it was going to be until I got the opportunity to study under one of the world’s top exterior lighting designers. This experience started a passion in me to start and grow a world class lighting company based in the Northwest. I love designing LED lighting systems but the most important thing to me is the experience we deliver to our clients and business partners. I am constantly looking for ways to enhance the experience we offer to everyone who comes in contact with Oregon Outdoor Lighting.
My wife Leah and I have 2 boys and a new baby girl. As a family we are very active with sports and various outdoor activities. I volunteer as a soccer coach for my boys and I really enjoying watching them train jujitsu. I also enjoy trial running and am fanatical about reading and listening to books.
Design Solution Provider
I’ve worked for Oregon Outdoor Lighting since 2012. Coming from the corporate retail world to a local business has been one of the best choices of my life. I have a very strong passion to continue to develop our business culture, build personal relationships, and transform our client’s home and yards! Both Kyle and Jacob are my brother-in-law’s and I have the privilege of working with them every day. The fact that this is a family run business has made it very fulfilling for me.
My beautiful wife Nicki and I have been married since 2009. We have two girls McKenley and Leighton, who are such a blessing to us. Outside of work, I volunteer as a basketball coach for our local high school, and enjoy doing activities with my family.

My name is Jacob Covert I was born and raised in Springfield, Oregon. Growing up I was always involved in sports. In high school, I played basketball and golf. Upon graduation, I moved to Portland to work for Oregon Outdoor Lighting. From learning how to structure my professional and personal goals to attending annual leadership conferences working for Oregon Outdoor lighting has helped me develop who I am as a person.
Along with having pride in my work, I also have great pride in my family. My wife and I have two dogs: Harlie and Sage. In our spare time many of our hobbies include being in the outdoors; camping, fishing, and hiking to name just a few. All in all, being a part of Oregon Outdoor Lighting has given me a great start to my marriage and I’m very blessed to be a part of the team.
Production Solution Provider
I’ve been with Oregon Outdoor Lighting since 2014. Working for Oregon Outdoor Lighting has been a life changing experience for my family and I. One of the main reasons I take pride in working for Oregon Outdoor lighting is that I’m pushed to do better. It doesn’t matter if it’s doing better at work or home, having that kind of backing from your team makes a big difference. Hearing about how happy we made a client and how wonderful our jobs are makes all the hard work we have done, very much worth it.
My wife Kandy and I just bought our first home. We have two kids, Kendra and John. In my free time, I help coach my daughter’s soccer team. My wife and I also love to work around the house on projects. We are about to start remodeling the living room.
After graduating from Oregon State University in spring 2016, I joined the team at Oregon Outdoor Lighting. With a degree in Kinesiology I never thought I would start my career with a local sales company. After meeting the team and learning more about the business I knew it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. In my short time here at OOL I have thoroughly enjoyed my decision and look forward to our future successes.
When I’m not working you can find me rooting for the Beavers, Blazers and Timbers. I’m a huge sports fan whether it’s watching or playing. I’m also a big fan of exploring Oregon and everything it has to offer!
