Jim Gourley

JIM GOURLEY FOUNDER

Jim Gourley’s love for Kenosha and the many kind-hearted people who live here convinced him to own one of the most unique local properties of all time: Kenosha.com.

The Kenosha native established Kenosha.com in February 2020, building off of a proven record of success in sales, marketing, finance, construction, manufacturing, product development and real estate.

Gourley, a 1971 Tremper High School graduate, is owner of Kenosha-based Bone Dry Products Inc. and Prairie Shores Company. He manufactured wood floors for over 140 retail chains including Kenneth Cole, Eddie Bauer, Abercrombie & Fitch and Williams-Sonoma.

When he’s not tending to his chicken coup or backyard beehives, Gourley’s favorite hobby is exploring Kenosha.

“I like to think of myself as the unofficial tour guide of Kenosha,” Gourley said. “Whenever somebody comes to see me, they’re going to get the tour. I’m going to show them everything.”

Gourley enjoys sightseeing along the lakefront, trying new restaurants, identifying construction and redevelopment projects and monitoring aircraft arrivals and departures at Kenosha Regional Airport.

Jim and his wife Sherry have two children and three grandchildren.
