“D.J. has that entrepreneurial spirit that I always wish I had,” Simpson Sr. said. “I’ve told him so many times that I was always jealous when people would come by my house, Smith & Sons Plumbers, or whatever — they had businesses they could pass down to their kids. For me, you can’t pass down popularity. To see his dream become reality. It’s been very rewarding."
