Meet the Family

J Barreda

Director of Design

John describes himself as a creative, self-motivated, and an overall great person! Quite the accurate description. He is married to Shelley 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! One creative goal is to start a YouTube channel. When he does, we will be sure to like and subscribe so he has the support of his Chesmar family! Speaking of his Chesmar family, John says his favorite thing about Chesmar is the people.
