The management team at J3 are certified Professional Engineers that bring complementary skills and diverse backgrounds working with government agencies, land developers, and design/build contractors. With over four decades of combined civil engineering experience, our Principals bring a solution-focused perspective to your engineering projects.

Jason A Monforton, PE

Mr. Monforton has established excellent working relationships with various state governmental agencies and municipalities all across the state of Colorado. He is an effective communicator who has managed the engineering planning and design of over 4,000 residential units (single-family and multifamily) and roughly 500 acres of commercial development. This work includes the analysis, design and coordination of a significant number of water and sanitary lines as well as all the Site drainage analysis and design. He understands all facets of civil engineering including the development process from entitlement through construction and strives to ensure all design aspects reflect a necessity for plans to be both approvable and buildable.

As a founder of J3 Engineering, he has created a working environment that promotes excellence from project inception to completion. Mr. Monforton remains intimately involved in the entire project process and provides  oversight and administration of all complex client projects.

Jason D. Margraf, PE

 Mr. Margraf has extensive planning, engineering and construction experience on land development, water resources and capital improvement projects.  This experience was attained through his hands on project approach in multiple states and over a storied career.  His private sector work experience includes land development and master planned developments up to 3,000 acres in size, golf courses and golf course communities, individual and master planned commercial properties, public and private schools, parks and open space with amenities and local and regional drainage improvements. Public sector work includes highway alternatives analysis and associated final design, hydrologic/hydraulic design, bridge washout studies, stream restoration and remediation and general civil and stormwater management engineering on Federal projects.

Well-versed in all of the aspects necessary for successful project delivery, Mr. Margraf stays intimately involved in the day-to-day operations of the design team and has input at every stage of the process.  He serves as a Principal, Project Manager and Lead Designer on J3 projects and actively mentors staff to engender sound engineering principles, thoughtful approach and a client first mentality.  Additionally, he serves as a technical and processing advisor to staff and clients to facilitate navigation of the difficult development environment.
   

Kenneth S. Cecil, PE, CFM

Mr. Cecil offers a wealth of relevant water resource experience gained in Colorado, Wyoming, California, Arizona, Florida, Nevada and Utah. This experience includes the development and operation of hydrologic/hydraulic watershed and stream models. He holds a Masters of Engineering Degree in Water Resources from the University of Florida and is a Certified Floodplain Manager.  He is also an active member of the Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers and is a former chair of the outreach committee.  His greatest area of interest is the implementation of sound floodplain management strategies in an effort to improve matters of life/safety, stream stability, water quality, and habitat preservation.

 

Mr. Cecil's range of experience includes surface water modeling, groundwater and contaminant transport modeling, floodplain studies, stormwater master plans, regional detention design, water quality design, storm sewer design and general civil design. This experience is used to successfully oversee public sector projects on which he is responsible for quality control, client management, and ultimate project delivery.
