Katie Jensen, Rachel J. Jones
Kenner natives, sisters Katie Jensen and Rachel Jones come from a family of entrepreneurs. Their father taught them the ropes of owning and running a family business, which they then pursued in 2006 with the opening of Triton Stone. What started as a passionate effort to help rebuild the city following Hurricane Katrina has grown to 28 locations across the Southeast and the Midwest. One of the largest importers of natural stone, quartz, sinks, tools, and tiles in the country, Triton Stone Group’s family of employees has grown to 350 individuals across the country.
“My goal as a leader is to keep our family culture together as we continue to grow,” says Katie. “I know that there are no limits to our success as long as we continue to invest in our amazing team.”
Rachel agrees, noting that one of the biggest takeaways from her experience is that “it’s all about the people. Employees who are valued and who find fulfillment in their work are vital to the success of the company.”
Rachel feels blessed to contribute what she loves to the family business: marketing, brand consistency, and employee satisfaction. With a business degree and minor in entrepreneurship, Katie enjoys fulfilling her dream of running her own company. In addition to her role with Triton, Katie currently serves as Treasurer on the board for the Natural Stone Institute and will be the second female President in the organization’s history in 2023. In 2020, she was designated as NSI’s Person of the Year and recognized for her volunteer and leadership efforts as well as her overall passion for the industry.
