In July of 1983, Larry Jenkins started driving a cab for St. Louis County Cab Company. It took him about a week to decide that this was the place that he wanted to be. So, after having driven at County Cab for 3 weeks, Larry asked to put his own car on the fleet and to become a cab owner/operator. Just like that, Larry Jenkins became the first minority cab owner/operator in County Cab’s fleet.
Over the past 32 years, Larry has built an extremely successful business as a cab owner/operator in St. Louis. When you ask him about it, he gets very emotional recounting the things that he has accomplished in his life. But, he will tell you that his greatest accomplishment in life has been his family. Larry has been married to his wife Carol for 40 years. He has 3 children and 4 grandchildren, all of whom make him light up with pride. One of his daughters, Christy, worked her way through college at Washington University as an agent in the Care Center at County Cab. She is now a nurse educator. His son, Rosethnu, played wide receiver for the Mizzou football team and his daughter, Erin, graduated from UM-St. Louis and works at United Health Care. Anyone who knows Larry knows how proud he is of being a cab driver with St. Louis County Cab Company.
