Meet the Family

J Barreda

Director of Design

John is creative, self-motivated, and an overall great person! He is married to his wife Shelley and has with three children— Kaitlyn, Brooke and Ian. His family has two tiny dogs named Cooper and Steve, ironically, they’re both girls! Other than his family, John loves building and creating, or working with various materials like wood and metal. On top of that, he enjoys photography and learning first aid skills. If you asked about his favorite hangout spot, he’d say it’s his backyard with a glass of whiskey!

As a child, John had dreams of being an architect, now we know where those creative skills come from! Now with the Chesmar family, John says his favorite thing about Chesmar is the people.
