The Founders of Desert West Builders


Art entered into the construction industry in New England in late 1960. He owned a family of construction-related companies in the areas of heavy equipment/excavation/site work, electrical, plumbing, trucking, demolition, residential and commercial construction as well as a general contracting company. The general contracting company specialized in building all types of commercial buildings. During this period Art discovered the significant advantages to be found in metal buildings such as their speed to market, economic value, and curb appeal and he obtained a dealership with a pre-engineered steel building manufacturer located on the east coast. Art had been in the metal building business for about 40 years when he decided it was time to retire at which time the business was sold. Retirement proved to be boring at which time he and Jon started Desert West Builders. When he is not creating new building projects, he explores our great nation in his RV with his wife Bev and their dog Zach.


Jon grew up in the family commercial construction business in the ’80s and ’90s, learning to operate heavy equipment at twelve years old with Art putting wooden blocks on the brake and gas pedals of their Case Backhoe so his feet could touch the pedals. He moved up through the family business, mastering all aspects from fieldwork as an equipment operator, installer, and job foreman to sales and project management.

In 1995 he heard the call to serve his country and joined the military to become a Navy SEAL. While his initial intention was to serve for six years then rejoin the family business, Sep 11, 2001, changed his destiny for the next two decades. As a SEAL, Jon served in many operational and leadership roles within Naval Special Warfare. He has the distinction of over fourteen combat deployments with various combat-related decorations, unit and service awards.

After twenty-three years of honorable service, Jon retired from the military as a Chief Warrant Officer Four and enjoys spending his weekends with his ten-year-old son hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
