Jason Gilchrist

Construction Manager

Jason describes himself as a dedicated professional and dependable teammate; living by the words of Arnold Palmer, “The more I practice the luckier I get.” He has traveled and lived all over the world, but has considered Texas to be home for over 20 years with no intention to ever leave, not even for vacation.

While he is new to construction, he has garnered the skills necessary to succeed in the field through his 21-year career with the Army, from which he retired in December 2019. Jason holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics through UT Dallas and was commissioned from UT Arlington.

When Jason isn’t hard at work, he enjoys spending time with his sons, Jake and Walker. They enjoy finding a trail to hike or spending time on the water. Other interests include BBQ, Nascar, Texas Rangers baseball, and running. His goal is to complete a half marathon or triathlon by the end of the year.

Why Chesmar? Residential construction is an exciting industry and Chesmar is located in one of the fastest growing areas in the country. Jason believes that the warm culture and attentive team separates Chesmar from other builders, which are important qualities to him. Their hospitable demeanor makes him feel welcome and he is proud to be a part of their team.
