I received my bachelor’s degree at Utah State in 2015. While at Utah State I completed a 40-hour OSHA training and an industrial safety course. I have worked in a variety of trades ranging from Hydro-geology to construction to manufacturing. I like working with my hands and building things. I spend my free time with my family exploring the outdoors.

I was born and raised on the Navajo Reservation, and graduated high school in 1992.  I moved to Flagstaff in 1994 and originally started working for Western Truss in 1995. I am hoping to graduate from NAU in 2020. I have been married to my wife, Sharon, since January 1995 and we are blessed with 4 beautiful children; Ashleigh, Jason Jr., Kiara and Kiana. I love to hunt, fish, look for shed horns, play the guitar and worship my Heavenly Father. Running and biking are things I would like to get back into in the near future.

In January 2018 I purchased Western Truss from the original owner Mitch Buckingham. I have been involved in the construction industry my entire life. In 2013 I graduated from the University of Alaska Anchorage with a bachelors in Construction Management. My father owned and operated a successful general contracting business in the Flagstaff area for over 20 years. At 18 years old I left Flagstaff and after a couple of stops ended in Cordova, AK. There I owned a successful general contracting company, before jumping at the chance to buy Western Truss. My wife, Megan, and I enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, looking for sheds and all the outdoors have to offer.

I was born in Flagstaff. I was raised in the Verde Valley. I enjoy the high country, so that is why I moved to Flagstaff. I earned liberal arts, associates degree from Yavapai College. I am married and have three kids one still at home. Over the years I have developed the knowledge and practical experience to build and design residential and commercial floor and roof projects.

  • "Great people to work with and management cares about every individual. Interview process was honest and up front; insisted I visit the facility I would be working at, since it is a manufacturing environment. Good pay scale & good benefits. Management works hard at maintaining a safe working environment & upgrading processes and systems."
