As general contractors, we are given a great amount of responsibility on the job site. Our job is to ensure workers are safe, schedules are kept, mistakes are minimal, and details are accurate. At JDI, we have the CEO and CFO who manage every job with a timeline and budget, project managers who oversee multiple jobs, superintendents who supervise their assigned job, and service managers/technicians who handle detailed tasks and service calls on multiple job sites.
Being successful requires strategically organizing the schedule of sub-contractors so the project can progress smoothly and within the timeline and budget. On some jobs, the number of sub-contractors can reach up to 30! This includes: plumbing, electrical, concrete, HVAC, framing, insulation, stucco, installation, landscaping, pest control, and many other services. How can one company manage 30 different sub-contractors? Excellent management.
A good leader is also responsible for serving others. At JDI, we create and/or enhance a place for our customers. During that process, we also enjoy the opportunity to create a relationship with our customers. As CEO, Jason makes it his priority to personally invest in his customers and understand what their desires are for the finished project. Jason ensures that his team completes every job to the customer’s satisfaction.

We believe the core values of a leader consists of integrity, dedication, honesty, commitment and creativity. Leaders are held to high standards; however, we all fall short of absolute perfection.
Philippians 2:3-4 sums leadership up simply:
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of
