Jeff has worked on small- to mid-size commercial, industrial and residential civil site development projects in the southern Arizona region since graduation. Jeff decided to stay close to his alma mater and remain engaged with the university through the mentoring of current students and assisting with the civil engineering senior capstone class.
In January 2010, Jeff and a partner, UA graduate Kevin Hall (BS civil engineering, 1995), started Cypress Civil Development here in Tucson. The firm focuses on site civil development and planning in Tucson and the surrounding communities. Jeff enjoys playing an active role in what is affecting Tucson now and in the future. In addition to work, he participates in ASCE and Engineers Without Borders, as well as a men’s health charity called Movember, a foundation focused on raising awareness and funding for the fight against prostate and testicular cancer.
Dale was hired by the U.S. Air Force to be a civil engineer in the Palace Acquire Program. This program is a two-year intensive education and internship to learn exactly how to do civil engineering the Air Force way. He started at his new position in June 2011 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio. He recently obtained his Professional Engineer license in Ohio to add to his registration in Arizona.
Eric continues to live the dream and still enjoys going to work for the same company that hired him fresh out of college, JCH. JCH is a small company that specializes in the design and specification of water and wastewater equipment. Every day is different and Eric enjoys facing the myriad of challenges that each day brings. Excited to have a life back after passing the Professional Engineer exam in April, he has been doing a lot of traveling around the state of Arizona for work and, as Eric said, “I'm lucky to have been involved in many cool design projects in the environmental arena.” Eric is looking forward to what the future brings with JCH and exploring as many opportunities that come his way.
