About Us

Ross O'Rourke,
Growing up in Lebanon, OH and unable to pay for college, Ross enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he was quickly called to serve in one of the largest offensive assaults in U.S. military history in Fallujah, Iraq.  Afterwards, Ross excelled in the business of Federal Contracting. He founded a Tech company and grew it to over 200 employees in 4 years.
After selling the Tech company, Ross envisioned going back to his roots, by building a quality community that puts the tenants first. Ross values honesty, loyalty and being good to your word. He believes in doing the right thing, putting God first and having faith that everything will work out. He believes in treating others with respect until they prove they don't deserve it.  These are the values that he was raised with, and the values he aims to bring to 42 Flats.
