Pappas Painting & Repair

Meet the Team

The PPR Family


Frank Pappas

  • Role: Owner and Primary Estimator
  • Secret talent: Master of the smoker and grill
  • Background: Customer service, painter, 
  • About: When Iā€™m not visiting customers or in planning meetings with the PPR team, I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. I frequently get out of town to my farm in Kansas with my German Shorthair Pointer, Berkley, or can be found fishing in Colorado or Wyoming. I have also served in a leadership role since 2015 for Flatirons Church in their Fathers in the Field ministry to assist and mentor fatherless boys

Jen Smith

  • Role: Vice President and wearer of many hats
  • Secret talent: I make a pretty mean cupcake
  • Background: Marketing, event management and project management
  • About: When I hang up my PPR hat at the end of the day, I really enjoy tackling DIY projects around the house, cooking/baking and spending time with my little family. I grew up in Texas - though you'd never know it by talking to me - and learned a lot about southern hospitality - including that chocolate chip cookies are best served warm with Blue Bell ice cream and that a good meal can brighten even the most awful of days. My husband and best friend (Justin) and I live in Aurora with our baby son, Asher and our little weenie dog, Gracie.
