A New Orleans native, Ed has been involved with the local construction industry since high school.

In 2013, Ed and Jason kicked off JET, which has grown exponentially through present day. Today, alongside real estate investments in New Orleans and Mississippi, Ed issues pricing for all JET's contract work, negotiates terms and value engineering issues with clients, and oversees the internal operations of JET.
