IN JASON’S OWN WORDS …
How would you describe what you do to someone unfamiliar with your job?
I’m an engineer who leads water, sewer and roadway design and construction projects primarily for local municipalities and organizations. I work closely with our clients to plan for these projects, and in many cases I help them secure funding for those projects through local, state and federal grants.
What do you like most about working at Fehr Graham?
As we like to say around here, we have big firm capabilities with a small office feel. Providing our clients with a turnkey operation is very satisfying. Knowing our team of technical experts, which includes engineers, surveyors, environmental scientists, landscape architects and grant writers, are available daily to meet our clients' needs in virtually all aspects of their projects is a great feeling! I also love the culture we have developed here. This is a great place to work!
Tell us about your professional accomplishments.
I have worked in this business for a long time, spending my high school and college summer breaks working for a civil engineering consulting business as an intern. As I look back at those days, I’m most proud of the professional advancements I have made during my career. Advancing from intern, to Engineer, to Project Manager, to Branch Manager and finally to the ownership group of Fehr Graham is a journey that has been very rewarding.
Who are you outside work?
My family is very important to me, and I spend most time away from work with them. I’m a dad, husband, son, brother and uncle. I also enjoy spending time with friends, many times and especially in the summer months on the golf course.
How would your co-workers and clients describe you?
Professional, experienced and driven.
What do you enjoy about helping clients and the communities in which they work and live?
I love seeing communities move forward with infrastructure projects. It takes a lot of effort to move a project from an initial thought or concept through to the end of construction. Procuring funding and collaborating on projects with community leaders is also rewarding to me, and I enjoy seeing the end product many times, even years after the work is completed.
