It was through this experience that he came to realize that he wanted to pursue a career as a structural engineer. Jason started working full time in 1999 as an engineering technician, where he began to learn what it took to put projects together and how to work with clients to develop economical solutions to design problems, all while attending classes in pursuit of his civil engineering degree.

In 2003, Jason graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Civil Engineering, with a structural emphasis. While in school he served as the treasurer, vice president and president of the university’s student chapter of ASCE.

Jason has experience with many structural systems including structural steel, conventional wood framing, heavy timber construction, reinforced masonry, reinforced concrete, and post-tensioned slabs on grade.
