Jack PenceJack Pence


Jack is a third generation contractor after his father, John and Great Grandfather Olaf. Jack started Pence Construction in 1976 and at that time he did his own concrete, framing and finish carpentry. In 1983 he was hired by Doug Barnhart as his first superintendent. With Barnhart, Jack supervised approximately thirty million dollars in military, state, and school projects. In 1990 Jack tired of commercial construction and went back to the creative work of custom homes under the newly founded corporation Pence Building Enterprises, where he began building his first of nearly 200 beautiful custom and semi-custom homes in North San Diego County. Jack enjoys the teamwork mentality he has created with his hand picked subcontractors and working creatively with his clients helping make their dream home become a reality. In his free time Jack enjoys spending time with his wife, Beth, and his family of growing grandchildren as well as surfing, gardening, and backpacking in the Sierra’s.
