Senior Project Engineer
Garth Stoppard, Jr.
A licensed Structural Engineer whose background includes everything from heavy civil construction projects to mixed use developments, Kyle joined GLY in 2015 bringing seven years of experience designing concrete structures. He earned both a BS and MS in Civil Engineering from Montana State University-Bozeman and is a longtime volunteer in the ACE Mentor Program. Outside of the office, when he’s not on the golf course begging for mulligans and gimmes, Kyle and his better half, Holly, spend their time traveling or cycling—often combining the two if possible!
A Washington native with a Sociology degree from Washington State University, Jesus left the real estate industry for a career in construction. He loves all things media: film, TV, video games, and music. He makes a point of attending at least five concerts every year! He volunteers for local food banks and with Vote Save America, registering people to vote. Jesus says his favorite part of the job is observing how everyone works together to create amazing buildings in the Puget Sound Region.
As a second generation carpenter, Garth turned out to be a Jr. in more ways than one. Today Garth is a hard-working Superintendent who enjoys building challenges across sectors, from housing to commercial construction. Garth takes a very thorough, caring approach to getting things done on his projects, and enjoys the outdoor life in his spare time—especially riding dirt bikes, camping or doing anything on or near the water.
Born and raised in Mercer Island and a graduate of University of Washington, Lauren is truly a local and proud to call Seattle her home. After earning her BS in Construction Management, she immediately joined GLY to do what she loves most: build! Focused and confident, Lauren never misses a beat even during the busiest phases of a project. Her keen eye for detail also never waivers, but this comes naturally to her. It is no surprise that her first job was performing quality control checks at a pear orchard.
Jon attributes his appreciation of craft and hard work to working as a carpenter for a Spokane-based general contractor while earning a BS in Construction Management from Washington State University. Since joining GLY in 1999, he’s honed his expertise as a healthcare and high-tech office project manager and team builder. When he’s not piecing together complex logistics plans, you’ll find Jon cheering on the Seattle Sounders or casting a line. If he could talk his wife into selling everything and living in a trailer down by the river, he’d be there already.
