About Me

Terry Ockerman

Raised locally in Lucasville Ohio by his grandfather, graduate of Valley and SCCTC. His career started directly after high school working highway construction and other trades in Dayton as a union carpenter and painter. In the mid 90’s Terry lived and purchased a shoe store in Over the Rhine Cincinnati where he started with one location on the Findlay Market and over the next few years expanded to several more stores adding apparel.

February of 2004 he purchased the Heighly Myers Furniture store from Eddie Levi in Portsmouth Ohio and converted it to market rate loft apartments to supply the growing demand of urban living.

The Lofts Coffee Company and Roastery began in 2014 complementing the lifestyle and needs of current residents in addition to those moving to Portsmouth seeking a urban lifestyle and a great cup of coffee.  Terry continues to encourage others to invest in making Portsmouth a lifestyle community.  He currently oversees the quality and scope of every aspect of the business.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life
