Jess Balmes

Assistant Director of Production

Jess joined Landis in March 2021 to help with our transition to CoConstruct project scheduling software. She is from Colorado and grew up in the business with both her father and grandfather working as general contractors. She was running a framing crew right out of high school and decided to make a career in construction after college, including running a construction company that built ultra-custom homes.  She recently returned to DC as her partner is from the area. She and Charlotte are moving to Alexandria and plan to be married in 2023. Jess is looking forward to living in a city with houses that were built 200 years ago. She enjoys educating friends about how to take care of their homes, as well as woodworking, traveling, tennis, and walking her dogs Oakley and Breck.
