About Us

Venture Surplus introduced top-notch customer service to the Army Surplus industry in 2016.

Venture Surplus was started in a small Colorado basement with a desire to bring the highest level of service to the men and women serving in our US Army. Since then, we have grown significantly. Of course, we serve everyone else too!
Gone are the days that you have to search endlessly through a bin of surplus gear. We have everything listed cleanly and plainly on our user-friendly site. Venture stocks genuine issue military surplus and quality aftermarket gear so you can get the gear you need when you need it.

Hello all,

I’m Jeffry.

As the founder of Venture Surplus, I like helping soldiers and veterans get the gear they need. I love working with my team of veterans, providing authentic surplus. In the few hours I’m not working, I’m probably out climbing a mountain with my Fiance or skateboarding.

Hi! Im Lucas.

I was medically retired from the US Army after 8 years as a Forward Observer. I started working here two years ago after I got out of the US Army, and I am the Warehouse Manager as well as part owner. If I’m not at work you can find me enjoying the outdoors or working on my truck. I enjoy whisky too much and grill some pretty mean steaks.

Hi! I’m Rosa.

My professional background is in administration and management.  Upon graduating from college, I became a management team member for a growing women’s clothing store.  Later I took the administrator position for a microfilming company. 

I have five children whom I homeschooled off and on for about 20 years, two grandchildren who are the light of my life and a wonderful husband with whom I’ve done life for over 30 years.  I have enjoyed being on the Venture team for over three years, supporting my team members in the administrative area and managing our growing inventory.

Hi! My name is Jade and I am part of the Administration Team at Venture Surplus.

I help with tasks such as preparing and shipping out orders, ordering supplies, handling inventory, as well as much more. My hobbies include adventures and photography. Although I went to school and received an associate degree in Criminal Justice, I have worked with Venture Surplus since October 2020 and enjoy coming to work. It is a pleasure being part of a team that works so well together, watching the company grow, and being a part of making things flow smoothly on the day-to-day basis.

Hello, I’m Ross.

I am the resident nerd here at Venture Surplus. I do our web development, systems design, data architecture, and anything that involves tech nerdom. I also coordinate our marketing. I am proud to be a part owner of Venture Surplus.

I am also a popular online music teacher, known as Ross the Music Teacher. When I am not working, I am playing music, skateboarding, or hanging out with my wife and dogs.
