2016 Frank Kirkpatrick Award Recipient | Gary Jorgensen

As a 40-year member of VJS Construction Services, which has included five generations of the Jorgensen family, Gary Jorgensen has been involved in hundreds of construction projects that have shaped the greater Milwaukee region over the years. He has been a leading voice in the construction industry itself over that time. His passion lies beyond the brick and mortar, however. He delights in creating distinctive buildings that truly impact people’s lives and his leadership can be found in such places as Mount Mary University, St. John’s on the Lake and the United Community Center, to name a few.
