Veritas Team Bios
The vanguard of our Veritas Leadership, John “Johnny” Koepp was born and raised in Fort Worth Texas, having roots in this community that spurred him to keep those roots here in business. This does not mean Johnny kept his talents local. After attending OSU in Tulsa, Johnny proudly served 4 years in the U.S. Army at Fort Carson, CO. There he continued his world class wrestling career, training at the Olympic level and experiencing the world in places like Russia, China, and Mongolia. Upon returning, Johnny took his experiences and established values into the construction field. Now, 8 years later Johnny founded Veritas Restoration & Contracting, LLC with his lifelong friend Cahill Hooker. Together they are growing Veritas to be the premier restoration and construction community driven company in his home, Fort Worth Texas.
He is the proud father of his 5 year old son Kash, loving to watch him grow into a gregarious and generous young man. You’ll also find Johnny outdoors more often than not as he is an avid sportsman, enjoying golf and hunting among others. If you do catch him indoors, he be relaxing at the Fort Worth Club listening to Dave Portnoy in the lounge. Combining charm, integrity, truth, and above all else a genuine dedication to putting the client and community first; you will want to have Johnny and Veritas working on your properties project. Whether that project is roofing, or installing that new outdoor kitchen.

Cahill was born and raised in Dallas and even as a kid wanted to be a businessman. Among his childhood small ventures of selling mistletoe during the holidays outside Albertsons, mowing lawns, or grocery shopping for elderly neighbors, Cahill also often helped his dad with his fencing and construction business. He and Johnny met at Bishop Lynch High School and after graduating both went on to participate in collegiate athletics. Cahill took his football talents to Fordham University in New York where he earned a degree in Finance and met his wife, Trina.
After college, Cahill moved to Fort Worth and began his career in crude oil marketing while continually exploring the idea of making his dream of becoming a business owner a reality. Johnny and Cahill reconnected in 2016, discussed many ideas of how to go into business together and became confident their individual strengths would make for a perfect business partnership. Their shared values of honest workmanship, dedication to our customers and continued growth in our beloved Fort Worth community have allowed Veritas Restoration and Contracting to flourish.
Cahill’s family is his pride and joy. He and Trina have an 18-month-old daughter and are expecting their second child this summer. He also loves to cook and grill. If you’re lucky, you might have the opportunity to try his award-winning chili, famous burgers, or delicious steaks.
Cahill’s dedication to detail is not only reflected in his delicious food, but also in his work. With Cahill as your advocate you can rest assured knowing your project will be completed with the utmost integrity.
