Susan Harper - Owner and Service Manager
Susan Harper, owner Target Exterminating & Lawn Care in Montgomery AL

Susan joined Jimmie in the business in 1994. She remembers when she began answering the phone instead of Jimmie and saying, “Target Exterminating, may I help you” that she would get the response, “you mean Jimmie, this is Jimmie’s company, right?” She soon began to see the gift her husband had with their customers; they were able to completely trust him. She proudly says that now in 2019 they no longer ask for Jimmie but for Susan! Susan enjoys her job as service manager and really likes the contact she has with the customers. Many customers have individual needs; Target is committed to the individual. “I love being at a restaurant or in the grocery store with Jimmie and meeting customers face to face that I’ve only spoken with on the phone maybe for years”.

Jimmie and Susan have two children, Lee and Kayla, who are married to Laura Ashley and Kyle. They are extremely blessed with three grandchildren, Holland Grace, James (Jimmie Harper III), and Margaret Ruth and Weldon (with one on the way in September 2019).   Jimmie calls the St. Augustine area home, and Susan grew up in Brundidge, AL, which is 60 miles south of Montgomery. They are a house divided: Jimmie is for Alabama and Susan is for Auburn. They love spending time with each other, which is good since they have worked together for 24 years! They also enjoy family time, attending their local church, watching football, and trips to St. Augustine.
