I had the pleasure of working with Joe at Freeman Construction, when it was a Real construction firm... Thanks to Him! And Thanks to Him for helping me learn estimating, buy outs, budgets, scheduling and Project Management from the bottom up. His patience and insight were priceless! A Great Mentor with a wry sense of humor and intelligent perceptive solutions based on an Honest approach to working with a multitude of suppliers, contractors and some less scrupulous owners. It is my Honor to have worked with Joe on a personal and business level during that period of time. He set a High Professional standard of Excellence. My deepest sympathies to Mary Lou and all the members of his great Family. Peace be with You all..
