New Hire: Jack Nelson

NH Nelson

Please welcome Project Engineer, Jack Nelson!

A Puget Sound native, Jack was born and raised in Seattle. He's had a bit of experience on both sides of construction; in the field, and in management. "Before coming to work for Sierra I first worked as a laborer the summer going into my freshmen year of college. The past three summers however I worked for a general contractor in Seattle as a Project Engineer intern.I chose the construction industry because I enjoy the team aspect of day to day work as well as the ability to see something physically come to fruition from a set of 2D plans to a final finished product that will stand for years to come."

"I first heard about Sierra through a classmate at UW who interned here, he had nothing but great things to say about the team here. Then after some quick research and asking around, I was drawn to the tight knit feel of the company."

What would you be doing if you weren't in construction? 

If I wasnt in construction I would try and convince one of my two brothers to give me a job or start a company with me. What that would look like or its success would be a toss up!

What is your favorite pastime?

Watching Husky Football.

What is the best advice you have ever heard? 

The best advice I've ever heard was from my Dad who told me the quote "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are" by Teddy Roosevelt.

Favorite vacation spot?

My favorite vacation spot is going to my family cabin on Lake Wenatchee.
