After graduating from Washington State University with a BA emphasis in Architecture, Jon moved to Whidbey Island in 1990 and started up his own design firm located in Coupeville. In 1994 he contracted with then owner of Cascade Custom Homes, Mel Gill, as their estimator and architectural designer. Being a longtime resident of Whidbey Island and having a passion for design and the home building industry, it seemed like the next natural step for Jon was to purchase Cascade when the opportunity became available in 2000. Jon’s commitment to transcend the homebuilding experience for his clients has built an award winning reputation and helped hundreds of clients build their custom dream home. Jon has managed to run a viable company by planning for limited future resources and economical down turns. In addition to being a WSU graduate, he is a National Association of Home Builders Certified Graduate Builder, Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist and a Certified BuiltGreen™ Builder.


Vice President

Jay started working in construction early on. His enthusiasm started with a 5 gallon bucket and shovel in hand when he was given what he refers to as an “opportunity” to dig a crawl space by hand. This “opportunity” led Jay to explore every aspect of home construction including excavating, foundations, framing and finishes. After many years of hands on experience, Jay went on to become an owner’s representative and managed home renovation projects throughout the greater Seattle area. Jay joined his brother Jon in 1996 as the Construction Manager of Cascade Custom Homes and Design and became co-owner and the Vice President at the start of 2008. Jay and his family have resided on Whidbey Island since the mid ‘90’s and he supports his brother Jon in his commitment to providing the best experience possible for the clients of Cascade. Jay currently holds certification with the National Association of Home Builders as a Certified Graduate Builder and Certified BuiltGreen Builder.


Project Manger
Larry joined the team at Cascade in 2008. His diverse background in the building industry includes owning his own business and managing custom home projects for a Seattle based luxury home builder. Larry, like the rest of the Cascade team, grew up on Whidbey Island and he graduated from Oak Harbor High School. When Larry isn’t spending time with his family, his “Fab Four” alpacas, or being a part-time musician you’ll find him on a Cascade job site building dreams for people. Perhaps even more rewarding than making dreams come true, Larry enjoys building new relationships with his clients.
