“We really enjoy what we do. The work is fun, challenging, and most of all; the end result offers a real sense of accomplishment.”


Jason Appel re-joined Rhodey as a project manager in 2021 after working as a commercial developer and constructor. Prior to developing and managing multi-million dollar real estate properties Jason worked at Rhodey for over 12 years focusing in healthcare at BJC’s facilities. He appreciates the customer-centric attitude at Rhodey and understands that a client’s needs are always first and foremost and looks forward to continuing Rhodey’s strong owner relationships into the future. This belief has only been strengthened since spending time on the Owner’s side of the table.

In his role, Jason demonstrates exceptional interpersonal and organizational skills keeping projects on time and within budget—while delivering high-quality results. He is responsible for reviewing plans, soliciting subcontractor bids, awarding contracts, and managing the schedule and budget throughout the duration of the project.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree in 1998 in construction management from Southwest Missouri State University, Jason was an estimator in the field of new home construction and worked during college, hands-on, in residential remodeling. Described as patient and particular about quality control, Jason enjoys his daily contact with clients.
