In February, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) awarded Clark Construction Vice President Jesse Rice the Silver Star Partner award. The award recognizes individuals on the Capital Rail Constructors team who demonstrate dedication to project goals and whose actions inspire a positive and effective work environment.
In recognizing Jesse, project representatives from MWAA and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority had the following to say about his impact on the Silver Line Phase 2A project:
“Jesse meets every challenge with well thought out positions to guide the Project to success. If a decision must be made by others, Jesse always brings practical options for consideration…Jesse’s method of subtly guiding the decision makers has successfully advanced much of the work in the field to date. His persistence and dedication to the team is apparent every day as he continues to pull the project towards completion.”
Jesse, who joined Clark as a field engineer in 1997, has held numerous positions across the Clark organization, overseeing multiple public projects including the $1.4 billion National Geospatial Intelligence Agency Campus East project and the White House Visitor Center Rehabilitation project. Prior to joining the Dulles Silver Line project team, Jesse was responsible for developing the overall strategic direction and overseeing day-to-day operations for Clark’s Safety Department.
The Dulles Silver Line Phase 2 project will further extend the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s Silver Line 11.4 miles west to Dulles International Airport and beyond to Loudoun County.
