Israel contributes a unique set of skills and experience as a Design Assistant for Jackson Design and Remodeling. After serving for ten years in the United States Navy, Israel earned a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from the Art Institute of California, San Diego. The leadership, motivational, and time management capabilities he strengthened during his military career are invaluable in the fast-paced JDR Design Department where multiple projects and tasks are in continual balance. He combines strong technical and design skills with an ability to inspire others and encourage an atmosphere of dedicated teamwork. Israel’s interest in design and construction was inspired early on by entrepreneurial parents and an influential high school teacher, a licensed architect. During his military service, Israel was fascinated by the cultural diversity of design and architecture as he traveled around the world. Israel embraces the family atmosphere of JDR and the team’s focus on supporting each other to achieve goals and produce exceptional work for each client. During his free time, Israel cherishes spending time with his wife and four children on family adventures.
