Remembering Roger Jesser, NSPE-F, P.E.

Roger Jesser was born March 8, 1926 to Frances and Frank Jesser of Ft. Collins, Colorado. He and his wife, Joanna, were high school sweethearts in Ft. Collins. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II. After the war, Roger graduated from Colorado State University as a civil engineer. He worked for the US Bureau of Reclamation and the Soil Conservation Service before being hired by Adolph Coors Company in Golden, Colorado. Roger enjoyed a long and successful career with Coors before retiring as a Vice President. He was active in the National Society of Professional Engineers and served a term as the Colorado state President.   A memorial service is planned in Colorado this summer, and we will share details when they are announced. The Denver Post obituary is at

Job Postings



Job Title: Structural Engineer

Civil/structural engineer licensed in Colorado will be handling forensic engineering work for clients throughout the region. The engineer will be expected to evaluate the cause of failure, extent of damage, and options for repair in a variety of construction-related circumstances, including roof evaluations. Presently, civil/structural engineers occupy much of their time evaluating the cause and extent of damage following storms and natural disasters. While a significant portion of this work is related to structural engineering, proficiency in other civil engineering branches such as soils, drainage, pavements, and hydraulics is highly desired. The engineer will need to effectively communicate his or her opinions in writing and verbally, sometimes as courtroom testimony.For a job description and details click here.
