Having been with Laurel Valley since 2003, Jake’s obsessive love for soil and compost is a little disturbing to some.  The role of compost is evolving rapidly as soil reclamation and storm water management have become an integral part of the green building movement.  Jake likes to interface directly with customers, helping them stay current by providing the latest information in this increasingly complex industry.

From landscaping during his high school summer breaks to moving into the manufacturing side of the business through college, Jake’s dedication to the industry and to protecting the environment is unwavering.  Jake’s connection with the environment developed during his childhood while riding horses through the beautiful Chester County, PA countryside.  An avid horseman, he believes there is no time as important as the present to take action.

Jake has a Bachelor’s of Science from Colorado State University.

Give Jake a call any time; he wants to help you to sustainably grow your business, so he can leave this planet a little better than he found it.
