Get to know us


J&L Development is a full-service construction management firm specializing in the creative, functional design and construction of religious facilities, commercial buildings, estate homes and nonprofit projects.

Founded in Nevada in 1989, Jesse and LeaAnn Ferrer moved the company to the Boise area in 2005. Over the past years, J&L Development has become widely known as the general contractor of choice for large projects that require persistent attention to detail.

The long-running success of J&L Development is based on relationships—relationships with clients, subcontractors and within the company itself. We believe what makes a project successful is not simply a focus on the destination, but an appreciation of the journey, too.

They moved to the Boise area in 2005 to raise their family and enjoy the quality of life the Treasure Valley offers. They now live in the Star area, where they have raised two boys.
