PROTO Profiles: Jesse Enck


Get to know PROTO Construction’s Carpenter and Foreman, Jesse Enck!

My name is Jesse Enck.

I have worked at PROTO since March 2016.

Something you’ll always find in my van is iced coffee.

My favorite lunch is an Italian sub.

The coolest PROTO project I worked on was for Armstrong.

On a Saturday afternoon you’ll find me doing something fun with my wife and kids.

My most loved tool is a Cordless MultiMaster.

Something useful I learned from my parents is to treat everyone with respect.

Something I learned from a co-worker is to be more confident in my own decisions.

PROTO is where I work because I enjoy the variety of projects we complete.

I’m currently working on a private residence remodel in Manheim Township.
