Jon Walsh, president of J. Walsh Construction, Inc., provides ultimate oversight to ensure each project is completed in a timely and accurate manner. Walsh began his career working for CNN in New York City but chose to follow another passion and became a builder in 1997 with the initial inception of Walsh Construction. Influenced by his father, a successful New York architect, Jon grew up around architectural design and construction and was naturally drawn to the profession. During early years as a carpenter’s apprentice, Walsh developed his skills working side-by-side with accomplished local artisans and European craftsmen, quickly rose to the rank of journeyman carpenter and eventually became an independent builder with the remodeling of apartments and townhouses throughout the New York area. He moved to San Diego in the early 2000’s and after performing as a working supervisor with local San Diego builders, re-opened as J. Walsh Construction, Inc in 2005.

Many of our valued team members have been with us for over a decade and have the experience needed to handle unforeseen challenges during the construction process. In addition to the talents in the field we have a new generation of trained project managers and technicians who organize the information and design specifications needed to provide seamless communication between client, office and the field throughout a project. Our team has earned the reputation for delivering a quality product in a professional manner, within the scope of a defined budget and timeline.


Integral to our team are the associates with whom we work in unison throughout a project, including design professionals, home owners, development partners and other tradesmen.
