Vern’s Glass was started in 1957 by Vern & Mickee James. Along with their son, Vern Jr., and incredible work ethic, they built a business that has stood the test of time. Vern James started in the glass business down in San Bernardino when he was just a youngster. In 1957 they moved to Lucerne Valley where Vern worked for Lucerne Valley Glass.At the time, there was nothing around that area. There were only a few businesses and we believe the Daily Press was open at that time down the street. Vern and Mickee’s dream was finally realized, and they opened at their new location in June of 1980.
Vern & Mickee’s nephew, Billy Mortimore, went to work for Vern’s and was a driving force within Vern’s Glass. They continued to work hard and serve the people of the High Desert for many years. In 1986, the current owner of Vern’s Glass, Vicki Langley, came to work for Vern and Mickee.
Vicki and Billy Mortimore had gone to school together over the years and made a great team. Vicki’s expertise was commercial glazing and her job was to build that end of the business. You can learn more about Vicki over on the Our Team page.
