NoCO Custom Homes owner Jason Jones has always had the desire to serve others. At a young age, he decided to serve his country and joined the Marine Corps right out of high school.
Jason spent six years in the Marine Corps, which included two deployments to Iraq. He returned to Fort Collins in 2007 and decided to venture into the world of real estate. After working under a mentor for several years and successfully completing several home projects, Jason decided to take the leap and establish his own custom home building company, NoCO Custom Homes. He incorporated the Marine Corps values of honor, courage, and commitment into his business operations to serve his clients with the same dedication with which he served his country.
Today, Jason is a veteran-certified builder and an Energy Star certified builder, and he has a long list of homeowners who are happy with the homes he built, including veteran homes through Homes for Our Troops. He attributes the success of his business to the discipline he learned as a Marine, his solid work ethic, maximizing his use of technology, the efforts he puts into continuing education and market evaluation, and the constant challenges he gives himself to continually improve his building skills.
Owner & Project Manager
Dani takes care of the NoCO Custom Homes homeowners and makes sure their home-building experience is everything they had hoped for.
Dani’s background in nursing makes her a natural in the role of customer care, and she enjoys connecting with and getting to know with our homeowners. She guides our clients through the selections process, coordinating between our designers, clients, and skilled trades to make sure all the details come together. Dani is incredible at helping track and organize the sometimes overwhelming amount of information and number of decisions that face homeowners during the custom home-building process.
When Dani and Jason aren’t working (which isn’t often), they enjoy relaxing in their own NoCO Custom Home, as well as spending time with their families and exploring what the different communities in Northern Colorado have to offer.
Bailey is a Colorado native, having grown up in Berthoud, CO and now currently living in Johnstown. She joined the NoCO Custom Homes team in November 2020 after making a career pivot to merge her passions of interior design and customer service.
Bailey comes from a medical background, previously working as a manager in the medical portion of a care facility for adults with special needs and developmental disabilities. She made the decision to shift into the world of custom home building because she loves helping people and understands the importance of making a house feel like a home, and in this position, she’s able to help people create their dream home!
In Bailey’s role as project manager, she helps sort out and keep track of the details of each project and facilitates communication between our clients, designers, builders, and vendors. Her balance of being a “people person” and a detail-oriented worker makes her a natural in helping our processes run smoothly!
Erik is a Colorado native, having grown up in Loveland and graduated from CSU. Erik served in the Marine Corps for several years and was deployed overseas, which is how he met Jason. After wrapping up his time in the military, Erik owned an accounting firm in the Northern Colorado region, which has made him a huge asset to the NoCO Custom Homes team to help manage the business financials and operations.
He now lives in Fort Collins with his wife and young daughter and enjoys escaping to the mountains with his family every chance they get!
Erik is dedicated to ensuring that NoCO Custom Homes runs as smoothly as possible, which lets us focus more time and attention on serving the families we work with to the highest degree.
Jesse has been an incredible part of the NoCO Custom Homes team for a few years now, leading our on-site crews as superintendent.
Jesse grew up on the east coast, going into the military directly after high school. During his time in the military, he met a friend who was in the hardwood flooring and tile industry and he convinced Jesse to move out to Colorado. Jesse has always enjoyed problem-solving and creating solutions, so when he got to Colorado he enrolled at Colorado State University and got his degree in engineering which gave him a strong knowledge base for the work he would eventually find in the construction industry. Jesse started working flooring jobs with his military buddy, which is how he got connected to Jason by working on a few of his projects.
Jesse’s favorite part about his job is that it’s always dynamic and changing, no two days are ever the same! There are always new challenges to solve and solutions to develop, so work always stays exciting.
Danny grew up in Durango, Colorado, where he developed a love to build things as a young kid and his dad helped introduce him to the construction industry through a handyman business he owned.
After graduating high school, Danny went to college and got a degree in construction management. He ended up getting an internship with a general contractor in commercial construction (Hensel Phelps), interned with them in Florida, and then accepted a job with them in Denver. Eventually, Danny got connected with Jason and was hired on as a superintendent to help oversee the construction process for our clients’ custom homes.
Danny’s favorite part about his job is that it’s very rewarding, not only on a day-to-day basis of seeing work get accomplished but also in the bigger picture, helping peoples’ custom home dreams come true.
Outside of work, Danny is a big baseball fan and enjoys working out, fishing, hunting, camping, boating, all the outdoor things Colorado has to offer.
Winston started his career with NoCO Custom Homes as the office intern. Since then he’s shown great dedication to the team and was recently promoted to the Office Manager role. He oversees day-to-day operations and can make surprise appearances in client meetings from time to time.
While Winston has grown out of his office prankster ways, he does continue to make the team laugh on a daily basis. One of the team’s operating values is to keep everyone smiling – clients and team members alike; Winston is dedicated to seeing this through.
Our team and our company culture would not be the same without him.
Gus is the newest member of the team at NoCO Custom Homes. His youthful energy has brought a new dynamic to the team and he loves to keep us on our toes – figuratively and literally. You can always count on Gus for a little spontaneity which is an awesome character trait for our ever-changing industry.
His lovable nature lends itself to plenty of mid-day snuggles which helps to alleviate any stress on the job. Winston, however, may think otherwise as Gus loves to pester him throughout the day (maybe a little too much).
