The History of Pride Excavating


Pride Excavating was established in 2005, in Draper, Utah by brothers Travis & Alex Jessop, who have been in the excavating business since they were in their teens. You could say it’s in their blood and that they have learned this trade from the ground up. As descendants of some of the original settlers of this community, their ties to our beautiful desert nestled at the base of the cliffs run generations deep. Their commitment is to be honest and reliable, to take PRIDE in their workmanship, and inspire loyalty and confidence in their customers.

The brothers understand what it takes to be the finest contractor in the excavation industry and have created a team that reflects their values and standards and understands the value of efficiency without compromise. Pride Excavating loves giving back to the communities we serve. We sponsor monthly after school activities and reading programs for children in Washington County, elementary and high school sport programs in Northern Utah, donate to our law enforcement officers and families throughout the state, and support local businesses and suppliers.
