Jake is one of our Project Managers at Sterling Ranch. He is responsible for managing all matters related to Sterling Ranches’ infrastructure including construction and repair projects, Douglas County’s warranty process, assisting with infrastructure inspections and addressing resident concerns. Jake brings over 10 years of experience in the construction industry. He is a dedicated worker who enjoys the satisfaction of seeing projects completed and the positive impact it has on the Sterling Ranch community. After earning a Bachelor of Science and master’s degree in civil engineering, he discovered that he doesn’t enjoy being behind a desk full-time. Working in construction management allows him to still be involved in civil infrastructure work and use his engineering skills while also being able to work outside in the field. Jake lived in Argentina for two years after high school while serving as a volunteer for his church. When Jake isn’t working at Sterling Ranch, you can find him youth sports coaching, volunteering at his church and spending time with his family.
