Jon Downing

Home Maintenance Department Manager

Jon grew up in the South Bay Area of northern California and studied art and design for two years at West Valley College. He graduated from SJSU in 1997 and worked for 4 years as a liability and property damage investigator. Wanting a new challenge and change of pace, he went to work for a friend who owned a high-end finish carpentry business. Jon worked for the next four years learning the trades and developing his hands-on skills. In 2005, he moved his family to southern California and became a part of the DD Ford team. Since then he has worked in various roles within the company as a carpenter, foreman, project manager and now heads up the Home Maintenance Department.

He also has had extensive training and experience in building science, infrared thermography, building investigations, and forensics.

He enjoys spending time with his wife and seven children, serving at his church and the community, and going surfing whenever he can find the time.
