History

J.E. Jamerson and Sons offer commitment, value, and experience. We have an extensive history of providing unparalleled service with noteworthy results. James Edward “Dutch” Jamerson founded J.E. Jamerson & Sons in 1946 in Appomattox, Virginia, originally as a building supply company. With shop and sawmill experience, Mr. Jamerson began a company founded on trust and built on quality. He liked to say, “You treat people fair, and expect to be treated fair.” J.E. Jamerson and Sons quickly began to evolve into a construction company. As years passed and building projects expanded, the tradition of excellence was born. Our success, in part, is because we have always been relationship-focused and built on trust. Dutch’s sons, James Robert “Bob” and William Edward “Bill”, joined him in the family business. Bill eventually lead J.E. Jamerson and Sons into commercial construction and expanded the services offered. We have since become one of the most respected general contractors in Central Virginia. As the company continued to thrive, Bill was joined by his son, Phillip, and now both father and son are deeply entrenched and committed to the company as evident by being personally involved in every J.E. Jamerson project. In 1995, Phillip became President of J.E. Jamerson and Sons, ensuring the family heritage continues, the company’s commitment to quality is preserved, and strong leadership is solidified. The Jamerson team embraces opportunities to manage a variety of projects. We build large-scale, complex buildings such as the First Colony Life Insurance building in Lynchburg, the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center projects in Blacksburg, and Jefferson Forest High School in Forest, Virginia. We also welcome and enjoy building smaller, more personal projects including, convenience stores, churches and private residences. The J.E. Jamerson and Sons team is devoted to providing integrity, dependability, and quality workmanship with every project. We acquire building projects of various size and scope through direct negotiation or competitive bidding. J.E. Jamerson and Sons is more than a builder; we are your partner in the design and build process. Our team brings years of experience to preconstruction planning, design-build projects, construction management, and renovations.
