Bob Jones was raised in Colorado. He worked as a police officer while earning a bachelors degree in Mathematics. After graduating from college, Bob went on active duty in the U.S. Air Force where he served as an instructor pilot and an aerospace physiologist. After 7 years on active duty service, Bob moved to northern Virginia and went into the real estate development and building business.
After moving to NOVA, Bob built a subdivision on which his future business partner Dennis Mastie Sr. purchased a house 3 doors down from his. It turned out that they had a lot in common, having both been former police officers, veterans and now both working in real estate development.
Dennis had extensive experience in the self-storage business and Bob had the building expertise. In 2000 they joined forces, building Backlick Storage and Telegraph Storage. Shortcomings with previous management companies led Bob and Dennis to found Storage Partners LLC in 2015 to take over management of the 2 sites on January 1st, 2016.
Dennis Mastie Sr.
Dennis Mastie Sr. is a family man, military veteran, former police officer, and entrepreneur.
Before Dennis became involved in the self storage industry in 1985, he served our country in the Vietnam War in the Navy with two tours of duty on the aircraft carrier USS Hancock. In 1969 Dennis was honorably discharged from the Navy and moved to Northern Virginia. When he arrived in Virginia, he joined the Alexandria City Police Department, where he served his community for a better part of 10 years.
Dennis has been involved in the storage industry since 1985. Over the now 36 years he has been working in storage he has owned 15 different storage facilities, so it's safe to say he has a strong grasp on what it takes to run a successful, safe, clean, and well managed facility. Telegraph and Backlick were build simultaneously between 2000 and 2002, with both properties opening in 2002. Dennis and Bob opened up Storage Partners, LLC on January 1, 2016 to take over direct management of both facilities.
