Meet the Family

Justin Tessem

Construction Manager

Justin describes himself as energetic, positive, and driven. He is proud to have his wife of 10 years, Karmann, and their son, Decklen, who is 6 ½.  He also has a 10 yr old chocolate lab, Brody. Justin’s favorite hobbies would be duck hunting with his son, smoking meats, entertaining neighbors, golfing, and being out on his parent’s property in East Texas.  Favorite sports teams would be the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys and watching the Melissa Cardinals football games on Friday nights.  The biggest things he is passionate about are his family, friends, and giving his son the life his wife and he never had at his age and making memories while doing it at the same time.

Justin’s philosophy is “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” – Stephen Covey

Justin wanted to be an architect growing up.

He says what makes Chesmar special is the culture, sense of family, leadership, and the drive to constantly excel and to do it as a TEAM.  Everyone has a great attitude and willingness to help.
