VACAVILLE — Jamie Hearn-Healer owns a Vacaville-based construction firm that is brand new, but nevertheless has deep roots in the area.

Hearn-Healer is the daughter of Fred Hearn, who ran Hearn Construction in Vacaville for more than 30 years. Hearn Construction merged with Sacramento-based Tricorp last year.

Hearn Enterprises Inc. is a separate entity from Tricorp that focuses on Solano and Napa counties, Hearn-Healer said. It is a general contractor that oversees local projects and uses subcontractors. It does commercial projects and remodels, she said.

Fred Hearn has a role in his daughter’s new company.

“He is kind of mentoring me along and helping out where needed,” Hearn-Healer said. “He’s trying to slow down and not be in the thick of things like he had to do with his previous company.”

And she had a role in her father’s old company starting about six years ago. After she graduated from college with a double major in business and finance, he asked her to come help out. She held different titles and learned every aspect she could about the business, Hearn-Healer said.

Still, she didn’t foresee owning her own construction company.

“The opportunity came,” Hearn-Healer said.

Olive oil win

Katz Rock Hill Ranch Organic of Suisun Valley won the Yolo County Fair olive oil contest.

It won the Patty Bogle-Roncoroni award. Bogle-Roncoroni helped develop the competition and served as a Yolo County Fair board member, according to a press release.

Katz Rock Hill Ranch Organic is operated by Albert and Kim Katz. Their 20-acre estate is certified organic and produces olive varietals Taggiasca, Casaliva and Leccino that originate in three different regions in Italy, the press release said.
