Vela Family


In 1970, Roque and Cookie Vela developed a passion for bowling. One year later in 1971, Roque Vela would leave his job at the US Postal Service to become a full time partner/owner/operator of the original Jett Bowl on Saunders just south of old Laredo Air Force Base. LAFB was a training site for jet pilots, hence the name “Jett” Bowl. As they say, The rest is history…

  • 1976 Pla-Mor was opened and the Vela's had a stake in both Jett Bowl and Pla-Mor
  • 1979 The Vela family bought out all partners and became sole owners of both Jett Bowl and Pla-Mor
