Our Team

Meet the team of Professionals here at Lost Pond Construction!

Jeff Tortorea

Jeff Tortorea began Lost Pond Construction in 2004 after having spent the previous ten years as a consultant in an international human resource development services firm. After honing his skills in recruiting, performance management, and workforce and leadership development with an international corporation, Jeff sought to pursue the launch of his own firm.  As the events of September 11, 2001 played out, and impact of the ensuing financial downturn became clear, Jeff elected to refocus his attention from employee development to a world he served during high school and college: residential home improvement.

With an initial focus on maintaining bank-owned assets, Jeff grew the company to expand its service offerings to include kitchen and bath remodeling, basement finishing, deck construction, and additions.  He built a team of the most talented individuals he could find.  From initial design to final quality inspection, you can rest assured that your renovation will be completed by trained and certified professionals who share Jeff’s unwavering commitment to excellence.

Jeff lives in Chardon, with his wife of 20 years, their two children Maddie and Ryan, and their beloved yellow lab, Bailey.  His hobbies include winter sports like ice hockey, downhill skiing, and snowmobiling.  During more favorable weather, Jeff enjoys trap shooting, boating, and spending time at the family cottage near Chautauqua Lake.
