Jesse Ware is the founder of Futuro, an environmentally friendly construction company. The company takes pride in building healthy, energy independent homes at affordable prices. For Ware, becoming a sustainable builder came naturally; it runs in the family. Ware credits his father for passing down his interest in green construction. “It’s something I grew up with,” according to Ware, “and something I’m excited to spread.”

Theresa Conn (TC): What do you like most about your job?

Jesse Ware (JW):
I love my job! I love everything about it. I like building clean, energy-efficient spaces for people to live or work in. I also really like learning about new developments can be applied to my business; the sustainable construction field is booming right now. It’s a good place to be.

TC: Where did you go to college? Does your college education help with your current job? What skills from college most prepared you for the work you do now?

JW: I spent some time at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia. I was a little lost down there; I took some Liberal Arts classes, but I wasn’t sure that was what I wanted to do. I came home after a year and spent the summer working with my father. I’m a second-generation builder. Dad was a builder, a real visionary. He was out there in the 70’s and 80’s building energy efficient homes during the energy crisis. I grew up in a household where my father was keeping up on all the new building technologies. That rubbed off on me. I ended up thriving in the construction industry, and I still love it today.
