Meet Our Designer

After graduating from Northrop High School in Fort Wayne, Jeff spent a year learning construction from the ground up working for a local construction company. In 1986, Jeff began his career as a designer and grew his knowledge in the basics of home design by working for a couple of prominent homebuilders in the Fort Wayne area.

For the next 10 years, Jeff continued to develop his skills working with these sources and created his own style of design that led to the formation of J. Nine Designs. Jeff was able to refine his craft and turned J. Nine Designs into one of the area’s biggest design firms. In the last 20 years, Jeff has designed over 2,000 projects ranging from the small remodel job to homes that sell for over one million dollars. He has also done work for some of the area’s most prominent physicians, builders, and business owners.

In 2006, Jeff has partnered with Hescot Builders and was the lead designer at Buescher Homes. After building a strong relationship with the owner of Hescot Builders, in 2016, Jeff was offered the opportunity to buy Hescot Builders. With the help of another area business owner, Jeff was able to buy Hescot Builders and carry on the tradition of designing and building high quality homes.

Jeff prides himself on not only having a good eye for design, but also the ability to create a set of plans that are complete, accurate, and easy for contractors to manufacture. It is because of this pride that Jeff is involved in every aspect of building your new home. From designing the house of your dreams, Jeff will also be scheduling and supervising the contractors and sub-contractors that perform the work. He takes great pride in his product and that is why he is on the job site every day to ensure he is carrying on the Hescot Builders name and reputation.
