Live Pitch

Early on in my career in the construction industry, I noticed I was reaching a glass ceiling and saw limited to no room for upward mobility. Knowing I had so much more to offer the industry but just needed the opportunity to really showcase my talents, I saw a way by creating my own path and started D. Jones Construction. Not only has this granted me the opportunities I always knew were there, but it has granted those who look like me the opportunity to join our team and this forever growing industry. D. Jones Construction is transforming once forgotten about communities by partnering with non-profit organizations and minority small business owners to build out their spaces and renovate distress homes. Restoring hazardous properties on the South Side of Chicago gives us the opportunity to shine light on something that was once forgotten about.
