Welcome to Epstein – Rufus T. Pulphus

The newest member of our construction team

Epstein is pleased to welcome Rufus T. Pulphus, the newest member of our construction team, to the Epstein family. Rufus comes to us with over 15 years of construction experience, in both field management and project management, on a variety of projects throughout the Chicagoland area.

Rufus graduated from Northern Illinois University (Go Huskies!) with a degree in Industrial Engineering/Industrial Technology. Some of the highlights of his career include working on projects for the Chicago Housing Authority, Chicago Public Schools, The University of Chicago, a Mariano’s in the South Loop, Bank of America and the UCAN City Campus.

Rufus was born and raised in Chicago and is the youngest of five. He has two lovely daughters – Ashanti (20) and Aiya (1). And he is also expecting his first boy in October (Congratulations!) and, is understandably very excited about the impending arrival.

In his spare time, Rufus is involved in a community organization and also assists with any group geared toward helping troubled youth in Chicagoland.

Lastly, Rufus loves playing basketball and softball but would much rather watch baseball and football than play. (Rufus, some would say that’s exactly what the Cubs, Sox & Bears have been doing lately!)

Once again, Rufus, welcome to the family!
