Charles J. Session Sr.
Session, Charles J., Sr. President and founder of Session Fixture Co., Inc. was called home by the Lord on January 9, 2017. He was an astounding man. A man of integrity, he ran his life and business according to the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Loved and respected by all who knew him, Charlie was genuine, sincere, caring and patient. At age 18, in East St. Louis, IL, he began his business buying and selling used restaurant equipment and cultivating relationships. As his business grew he moved to South St. Louis County at the corner of Lemay Ferry and Butler Hill. Due to his efforts, the building that houses Session Fixture Company is on the Historical Registry with St. Louis County. In 2002, he added the new building at 6044 Lemay Ferry Rd to accommodate for the growth of the company. In December 2016, the company broke ground for a new warehouse in Arnold, MO. In total, Charles Session was in business for 55 years. Session Fixture Company will continue to grow in success with his children, grandchildren and beyond because of the legacy he left behind.
