Structural Design Engineer
952.300.3340 ext. 103
A native of the Chicago suburbs, Jack grew up playing design simulation games like The Sims and Rollercoaster Tycoon, which also fed his fascination of skyscrapers, transportation infrastructure, and bridges. His aptitude for design, math, and science pushed him to pursue structural engineering at the University of Minnesota. Jack enjoys biking, hiking, and rock climbing when away from work.
Jack’s focus here at TEKTON Engineers as an engineer-in-training is designing structural elements for projects, including modeling the structure and sizing the individual beams, columns, and connections. He also drafts the structural drawings for most of the projects he designs.
