Fresh ideas about design
Strada is delighted to welcome Jesse H. Pointon, AIA, to the firm as a new Associate. For the past twenty-one years, he has specialized in delivering finely detailed projects that celebrate people, place making, and serve to elevate their community.
Jesse joined Strada from Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s (BCJ) Philadelphia Office, where he was an Associate. He honed his skills leading project teams for diverse, complex, and technically-demanding projects for clients such as Apple, Blue Bottle, Lehigh University, University of Pennsylvania, and the Agnes Irwin School, among many others. He was also the project lead for the Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center at Washington University in St. Louis, which received an Honor Award from AIA Philadelphia. Jesse also served as a firm-wide resource for best practices and quality control at BCJ.
A 2002 graduate of Drexel University’s 2+4 Architecture Program, Jesse began his career at MGA Partners, where he developed for 9 years working on a broad range of complex and finely-crafted projects.
An active contributor in his community, Jesse is an appointed member of both the Haverford Township Planning and Historical Commissions. He volunteers his free time to his sons’ school PTO. Jesse also loves to serve as a coach and manager of his sons’ soccer teams. A native of Trenton, NJ, Jesse currently lives in Ardmore, PA with his wife, Angela, two sons, and dog, Bernie.
