Vulcan Leadership

Jamie Doering


Jamie is one of our Owners here at Vulcan Design & Construction. Jamie served 12 years in the Marine Corps in both reserve and active duty capacities.

He deployed in 2008 to Djibouti Africa on a Humanitarian Mission for a year and won many Food Service awards naming he and his team the best food service team in the Marine Corps over many years! During his Reserve years Jamie spent his days becoming a Journeymen Carpenter and worked on several of the high rise buildings you see downtown today! After many years in the business, Jamie and Eric decided to open their own company Vulcan Design & Construction.  Jamie enjoyed Rugby in his Marine Corps days, but Priscilla won’t let him play anymore. She won’t let him skateboard either…he has yet to try without hurting himself!
