Jesse Jacob

Jesse grew up in Waukegan, Illinois. When he decided to continue his education he became a Hawkeye, attending the University of Iowa. Jesse also studied at ECPI University, or the East Coast Polytechnic Institute. His experience in construction project management has given him an eye for details and a passion for building things to last. He enjoys the AEC industry because “you can see progress in real time and know that it will be there for people to use, hopefully for a long time.”
