Jon Ellen

Vice President

Jon is smart, sincere, and beloved by his clients and team alike.

Jon is actively engaged early in project planning, sharing his expertise on feasibility and construction methodology. He knows his stuff, and his experience in managing extremely technical building projects and high-end interior spaces has given him an extensive blend of knowledge from which to build budgets and provide project solutions.

He understands current market pricing conditions, and his highly detail-oriented nature make him an invaluable asset during the preconstruction process. Jon excels at identifying the materials and processes that add the most value to meet project goals. His approachable nature makes this process — which is often stressful — an easily accomplished task. 

Starting as an intern in 1999, Jon is the first and only DAVIS employee to begin as an intern and ultimately work his way to Vice President. Jon has a knack for seeing potential and is a DAVIS “champion” for ongoing recruiting efforts at Catholic University – helping funnel the best and brightest interns and employees.

Jon can often be seen working with his team on numerous Jubilee Housing and DCBIA volunteer projects. He values these opportunities to strengthen relationships with others in the community, as well as improve his carpentry skills.

Catholic University, Master in Architecture – 2000
Catholic University, Bachelor in Architecture – 1998

Jon has ridden his bike around Puerto Rico — twice! Doing the math, that's six days + 750 miles of sweat and tears = many amazing memories.
