Have a directory where .zip files are being saved. A job runs that includes a list files task (to identify new zip files) followed by an extract task in a loop (looping through the items found by after executing the list files task).

I want to create a directory for the contents of each zip file using just the filename portion of the original zip file name (without the extension) and then extract the contents of the zip to the new folder. Not sure how I isolate the filename portion of the file from the list task results. Any suggestions?

Best way is to use the File Trigger and handle each new zip when it arrives instead of using that list. Then you process each file name in a Variable that you can use for folder creation for example. Please look at the File Trigger tutorial.
