Jon has been working as our Quality Control and Warranty Manager since 2006. After graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Construction Management, he was first introduced to Straub while working for a home builder as their Customer Relations Manager, building townhomes in a subdivision just a few blocks away from the Straub office. Ernest Straub Jr., or “Chief,” drove by every Saturday to inquire on the projects progress, finally introducing himself to Jon. The rest, as they say, is history.
Jon is one of the few individuals who works on every single Straub project, acting as a proactive problem-solver and working with Superintendents on daily challenges. With over a decade of experience, Jon has extensive knowledge of construction products and building materials. “I love my job because I feel like the MacGyver of our industry, constantly trouble shooting construction practices,” Jon says. He also ensures a seamless project closeout process and handles all post-construction issues that may arise. Should something happen during the Warranty phase of a project, clients should rest assured that Jon is there to rectify those issues.
