Mission Statement


EntranceEvery client relationship begins with the understanding that each project is as unique and individual as the client themselves.  Each project, big or small, is handled with the same amount of attention and detail.

Jackson Builders is not focused on being the largest contractor on the Island.   Jackson Builders is focused on being “your contractor”.  To this end, we plan and schedule accordingly, making sure we only take on projects that we know we can manage efficiently.  Ron is on the job himself and communicates with all of his clients directly.

While Ron considers himself to have some old-fashioned work values, he is very appreciative of today’s technology which allows instant communication of text or photos.  Being able to direct a client to a vendor website where he or she can instantly view and choose tile, trim, fixtures, paint colors and any other sort of material saves valuable time to our customers.  And his clients are always happy when he can save them a little time.


Jackson Builders History


In the 1970’s Ron’s Dad moved his family from Boston to Martha’s Vineyard to expand his building business.  Years later even though Ron left the Island to attend the Kent School in Kent, CT and later Merrimac College in Andover, Ron still made his way back to the Island where he now lives with his wife and two children.  After heading up Jackson Builders for the last 32 years Ron Jackson still feels it’s really quite a privilege to be able to work on this great Island and love what he does.  Ron strives to make sure that this is reflected daily in the work delivered to his clients.

When not on the job, you can find Ron on the golf course or at the MV Ice Arena playing hockey or supporting his son’s team.
