On Friday, June 7, 2019, J-U-B’s Mark Christensen, of the Orem, UT office, was recognized as the Engineer of the Year for the American Society of Engineers (ASCE) Utah Section. The ASCE Utah Section has 1,538 members and the recipients of this award are nominated by their peers from ASCE. This is a great honor and we are excited for Mark to be recognized for his integrity, work ethic and leadership skills.
Below is an excerpt from the nomination letter sent to the ASCE Utah Section Past President’s Council that votes on the Engineer of the Year Award.
“Mark represents his clients with the highest integrity and always keeps the health, safety, and welfare of the public in mind as he leads projects. Mark has represented several cities in Utah County as their City Engineer, including Lindon and Santaquin. He is also the trusted advisor of several more cities, helping them with development reviews and capital improvement projects. Delivering quality is very important to Mark. He lives by it, expects it from his project teams, and clients gratefully depend on it. He thoroughly reviews each deliverable, making sure the best interest of the client and the public are met.
Mark gives back to the community each year during E-week. He visits several schools in the cities where he works and talks about how Civil Engineering improves our lives. Mark is also very active with the BYU Engineering Department and regularly attends career fairs to meet and mentor students. “
