Jordan joined our ranks during the summer of 2014 after 7 years in a construction battalion in the U.S. Navy referred to as the Navy Seabees, which he refers to as “… a very impactful and transitional part of my life. “
“Interestingly enough, a black and white movie starring John Wayne was made illustrating our creation and purpose in the Armed Forces entitled ‘The Fighting Seabees’.”
What was this experience like?
“In total I completed two tours, the first of which was in Iraq and the second was in Afghanistan. My job mainly consisted of combat outpost construction, base construction, and camp maintenance. I also had the opportunity to visit Kuwait, Qatar, Djibouti, and Somalia, which I absolutely enjoyed. A fun fact is that I spent my 21st birthday in Somalia.
“Camaraderie is an important and lasting experience I take from the service, and I’m excited to learn everything I possibly can from a great crew and organization.”
Jordan was born and raised “… in the great region of western Montana. Growing up I acquired a rich appreciation for animals, nature, and the outdoors in general. My hobbies include hiking, fishing, hunting, precision shooting, and skiing.”
He had this to say on his cover letter…
“The majority of my experience in this field consists primarily of general construction and remodeling. I have done a little of a lot of different aspects of construction and remodeling to include roofing, framing, drywall, insulation, erection of pre-engineered buildings, concrete, fencing, and general labor.”
It also helped him hone his skills by working since childhood until now in his family’s business – Simmons Development LLC – performing landscaping, ranch work, general labor and animal care.
His focus, discipline and determination show on site and we’re glad to have him on board.
