A+E Partners/Owners

Meet the Owners:

Since many of you may not know Jason, Wayne, Michael, or Jeff, we thought we would introduce each of the owners so you can learn a little more about them. Please think of each of the owners as resources to you as you go through your day with questions about engineering and related matters. You may also find that you have some similar interests and may want to connect with them.

He and his wife Stina are the parents of three young daughters. Jason has also obtained his master’s degree in water resources engineering from Norwich University, while working full-time and raising a family. To say the least, he’s very busy, but loves it.
