Jennifer Thomas


Jennifer has been with McKenzie Commercial for over 15 years. She started out part time in the accounting department and has worn many hats over the years, from accounting to marketing to project manager. She likes to say that McKenzie Commercial is the last stop on the line as most people who come to work here never leave. Construction also runs in her own family. Her grandfather started businesses in steel fabrication, catch basin and stormwater protection systems. She was born and raised in Eugene, earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon and lived for a time in Colorado and California. She has two children, a daughter currently at Oregon State University studying to be a Physicians Assistant and a son attending Linfield University to play football and study to be a Physical Therapist. She enjoys everything outdoors in the summertime: hikes, river floats, walks around the river, visiting wineries and having dinner outside with friends and family.
