Meet The Workman Team

I feel very fortunate to have such a great operations staff that I work closely with on a daily basis.  You will experience a world class process from start to finish.  This is made possible because we have hired some of the most experienced, knowledgeable, and proficient people in the market place.  I would like to take a moment to introduce each of them.

I am excited to introduce our newest member of The Workman Team.  Jesse loves working with people and getting to know who they are.  He says he is excited to help families and individuals get into a home where they are comfortable, happy, and can accomplish their goals.

Jesse graduated from Utah State University in 2004 with a BLA degree and practiced as a landscape architect for the past 10+ years designing some of the most innovative public places, parks, and gardens in the state.  Jesse is married to Cami, and they have five children, three daughters and two sons, in that order.  He spends his free time running around to soccer games, working on his home and yard, and enjoying the outdoors. 

“I have had the good fortune to work with Wane for many years on several transactions, both purchases and refinancing.  He has always been my loan officer.  Wane's team is the best and they made sure that the process was clear, smooth and an overall wonderful experience.  Everything always went as planned . . . no surprises.  I feel fortunate to join The Workman Team here at Academy Mortgage. My objective is to support and add to the diverse team of professionals here.  My goal is to follow Wane's model of providing solid and expert advice on home mortgages with low pressure and high service.”  Jesse
