Jackson Brigham

Permit & Construction Prep Coordinator

People person. Life lover. Gets your project off the ground and on the road to success.

"Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, you'll be a mile from them and you'll have their shoes"

― Jack Handy

Growing up in Madison, WI and attending college in Milwaukee, Jackson is the resident cheese head at the BrightLeaf office. He moved to the Chicago suburbs in 2017, following his wife in her pursuit of a career in optometry. Jackson is optimistic. Annoyingly optimistic according to his wife (but that’s just, like, her opinion man). His personal philosophy is that you have only have one thing you can control in life – your attitude. Jackson comes into the office every morning with a smile on his face and a hardy greeting for all, ready to attack the day and whatever challenges it may bring.

Jackson’s interest in construction began in an unlikely setting – a hospital. Pursuing a degree in Health Care Management, Jackson was placed in an internship program in the construction and facilities department at one of the nation’s largest health systems. With a technical background as a mechanic in a past life, and always a hands-on type of guy, he knew how to talk-the-talk with the tradesmen while still pleasing the suits in the C-suite. With awesome advice from mentors and support from his family, he knew that pursuing a career in construction management was his next move.

Just like the rest of the team at BrightLeaf homes, Jackson is passionate about what we do. Though the nature of his tasks limits his interaction with clients, be assured that his work in the background to make sure that the Ts are crossed and the Is are dotted before construction even begins is an integral part to making sure that your project stays within scope and budget, and on schedule. He loves to see people smile and he takes pride in his contribution to our client’s dream build.

When not in the office, you can be sure to find Jackson enjoying the great outdoors on a camping or backpacking trip or exploring he and his wife’s adopted home of Chicago.
