Rex Causey

Rex is a Texas native from the greater Houston area who landed in the upper midwest through a college basketball opportunity where he attended Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND. There he earned his bachelor’s degree while playing college basketball and football, but most importantly he met his beautiful ND born-and-raised wife Kristi along the way. They were married after graduation and that summer they moved south to take a coaching and teaching job in the Houston area where they lived for about 13 years prior to coming back north in the summer of 2020. In that time, Rex and Kristi were blessed with 3 boys and 2 dogs added to the family.

Along with his professional career as an educator and coach, Rex has added to his résumé with a Master’s degree in Administrative Leadership, experiences running his own personal training business in the Houston area, and several years working in leadership and sales service roles in corporate restaurants such as Chili’s and Chick-Fil-A. These educational and professional experiences have helped Rex develop a professional, servant-leadership mindset that puts others first and fits right in with the culture of the Wegner Roofing and Solar family where we do whatever it takes to provide 5-Star service for our community. Kristi is also a tremendous support and helps with many of the things we do for our clients as we oftentimes are a husband-wife duo on a job.

When not climbing on roofs, Rex enjoys spending time with family, playing and coaching sports with his sons, and trying his best to transition from city boy to country boy by fishing and hunting when he can.
