Jed Mayes comes to us most recently from Oklahoma – which is more than a few miles from the eastern shore of Virginia. When he is not running the daily operation of F&R Chesapeake, Jed focuses on materials analysis – he likes to figure out what makes them succeed or fail, including concrete and asphalt mix designs and forensic analysis of pavements and concrete structures. So much so that Jed is working on his drone pilot’s license to enable him to perform thermal and visual inspections from overhead. While the rest of his family vacations to…well, relax, Jed enjoys scoping out fixes and failures wherever he happens to find himself (much to his wife’s dismay, we are certain). Most of all Jed loves to share his knowledge through hands on training which is why you’ll find him in the lab and on site visits most of the time.
