His journey to helping Bold Construction become one of the area’s premier builders began in 2003 when a business opportunity with his best friend, since preschool, Chris Ehrenfeld, opened up. After relocating his family to Chapel Hill, Jason became an integral part of the development and building company’s ownership, leading the team in client relationships, project management, and business development. Jason is a licenced General Contractor.
Jason can be found spending time with his two children, Carter and Tatum, playing a round of golf or volunteering with local nonprofits.
