Who We Are
Jason Van Meveren


Nickname you prefer to be called:

Not that I prefer to be called it, but in High School everyone called me Ogre.

What’s a typical day look like for you?

Wake up @ 4:30, take care of the dog. Check a few emails and drink some coffee. Head to the jobsites and put out any fires that pop up. Back to the office and get the days meetings and paperwork out of the way. Work on the next day’s schedules and priorities. Start to wind it down about 5:00. Start the drive back home. Find a lake to fish a while or a gravel road to hunt on the way back home, play with the dog, make some supper, kiss the wife goodnight, and start it all over again.

What year did you start with Crestone?


What year did you get into the construction field?


Where did you grow up?

The huge city of Aurora, SD

Favorite thing about your neighborhood that you grew up in?

New development, lots of young families, tons of kids my age growing up. A neighborhood football, baseball of kickball game was a common occurrence.

When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be a cartoonist. I was always pretty good at drawing. Started off with superheroes and such, years down the road it turned into drawing houses and buildings. Weird path, but it seems to have worked out!

What do you like to do when you are not working?

I love to fish and hunt. I like to tinker around in the garage working on my project cars or just annoy the neighbors by doing burnouts in the driveway.

My three pet peeves?

Fly swatters hands down number 1, those things are gross… then probably indecision followed by Judge Judy.

Name a few of your daily habits (other than showering or brushing your teeth).

Try to take the dog on a walk every day, Try to learn something new every day, Try to drink a beer every day and either watch the sunrise or the sunset every day. Bonus if you catch them both.
