President and CEO Todd R. Jackson

Todd Jackson

Todd Jackson exemplifies the spirit and practices of a successful remodeling entrepreneur. Through his determination, drive, and true love of the industry, he has established an enduring tradition of quality, innovation and service in design build remodeling.

Todd entered the remodeling business at age 20 and was a licensed General Contractor by age 23. He is experienced in all aspects of the industry and has extensive knowledge of specialty products and materials. Todd has earned certification in several capacities relevant to the remodeling industry, including:


  • Green Certified Training with Build it Green
  • Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) Designation

Todd's vision and drive to be the best drove him to work outside the “accepted” parameters in design to shape a unique process that continues to enlighten the industry with its innovation. His carefully developed and tested design build process takes days or weeks to complete, versus the months most other remodeling companies take, while continually winning industry awards for design.

Todd understands the importance of preserving the solid reputation he and his company have earned over the years. His philosophy of surrounding himself exclusively with great individuals is embodied in a devoted team of accomplished professionals.

Todd Jackson has built Jackson Design and Remodeling based upon the core values of a strong work ethic, a sense of urgency, the strong fiscal health of the company, a phenomenal experience for the client and a sense of fairness for all involved.
