JACE to open second Port Angeles office

To commemorate the grand opening of its new office, JACE Real Estate Company is hosting a ribbon cutting and a romance-themed marketplace fro 2-6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, at 319-A South Peabody St., Port Angeles.

The Valentine’s Day marketplace, complete with chocolate, notecards, jewelry and flowers, support the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity.

”For more than 30 years the name JACE has meant real estate on the Olympic Peninsula and 2019 celebrates the 50-year anniversary of my late-husband, Jace Schmitz, launching his real estate career,” Eileen Schmitz, President of JACE Real Estate, said. “It is appropriate we would celebrate the growth of JACE Real Estate exactly the way Jace and I always did, by giving back to the community.

JACE Real Estate Brokers in the new location are Kimi Robertson, Patti Morris, Lisa Divelbis, Dathan Myers, Joe Tyler, Jr., Neil Dexter and Ben Scofield, along with Eileen Schmitz.

JACE Real Estate has additional offices on Sequim Avenue in Sequim (360-681-7979) and Front Street in Port Angeles (360-452-1210).

Jamestown Excavating’s new leadership team

Jamestown Excavating recently welcomed a new leadership team to help direct its growing business.

Lonn Sweers has been hired as division manager, and Christina Owens is the business’s new office manager/bookkeeper.

Sweers comes to the job with more than 20 years of experience with a large excavating company in Portland, Ore., where he began as a laborer and rose to the level of superintendent, an eventually to general manager.

His work includes site preparation for skyscrapers, sewer line construction using robotic technology, and other significant excavation projects.

Lonn and his wife, along with their two sons, moved to Sequim last year, following his mother and sister.

Owens comes from Missouri where she received her bachelor’s degree in corporate finance. When her family moved to Sequim she followed, first working for two years at 7 Cedars Casino as a revenue auditor and then as accounting assistant specialist.

“After more than 20 years of incubating this business, we are now positioning ourselves to enter a larger arena where we can increase our capacity to bid and complete larger jobs,” Hawk Grinnell, the tribe’s Economic Development Authority Finance Manager, said.
