Tom Monroe


Words to live by: Treat every person the way you would like to be treated.

Tom came to JMA in 2000 as a lead foreman and was promoted to superintendent after three weeks. He describes himself as an old-school carpenter and has over 30 years in construction. He loves the field of construction for the opportunity it provides him to take a set of plans and bring a client’s dream to life. A favorite part of his job is working with JMA’s subcontractors, and he especially values working with all the people at JMA – they are like family to him. Tom’s experience includes both residential and commercial projects; some of his favorites are Castle Concrete Pumping, the Foster Residence, Copernicus Stables, and the Clos du Bois Culinary Center.

When he is not overseeing projects at JMA, the beauty of Hawaii’s beaches and Yosemite’s backcountry beckon. A fan of golf, scuba diving and backpacking, in 2012 Tom completed a 12-day hike of the entire John Muir Trail.
