Kevin Cohen - President

Journeyman Plumber - Oregon

Kevin Cohen has had plumbing in his blood. His Grandfather was a plumber and his father, Glenn Cohen, is still a plumber in Cottage Grove. At an early age, Kevin knew plumbing was the road for him. He spent his time before school, after school, and on the weekends working for his father when not occupied with sports or student government. While still a senior in high school, Kevin started his first year as an apprentice plumber through Oregon’s first pilot program. The program helps students start learning trades while still in high school. By the time he was done, he was, and still remains the youngest person in Oregon to receive their Oregon Journeyman Plumbers License. After working for others, he finally decided with the advise of his father, to try his own hand at running the show. At the age of 23, in 1998, Kevin Cohen Plumbing was started. Kevin is proud to have grown his company to one of the largest plumbing businesses in Lane County.
Kevin enjoys the outdoors and giving back to the community. You can find him in the water on a kite board in the summer, at the mountain on a snowmobile in the winter, and on a bike in-between. Kevin donates to causes such as Kite for Cancer, Children Miracle Network, Veterans Housing, and many more.

Marcia’s attention to detail and exceptional organization play a key roll in the success of the KCP team. Marcia met her husband in middle school but it was not until 2009 that they decided to start dating. Dating led to marriage, marriage led to babies.

Jason David - Senior Service Tech

Journeyman Plumber - Oregon

A local Eugene Kid, Jason never really thought he would be a plumber when he grew up. “Sometimes you just fall into things!” he says. An acquaintance called him out of the blue and talked to him about running the parts warehouse at a local plumbing company. Once there, he decided to enroll in the Plumbing Apprentice program. Early on in his career he met and became friends with a young hardworking plumber. After his buddy left to go start his own business Jason worked and watched his friends business grow. That friend, Kevin Cohen, called and Jason became the first employee at Kevin Cohen Plumbing. From June of 1998 to present Jason has added skill and strength to the KCP team. When Jason is not plumbing he enjoys, hunting, fishing, spending time with his two boys, and helping out on the Farm.
