Jay and Linda are both from Northern California - Jay from Chico, and Linda from Chester. They attended Humboldt University, graduating as newlyweds.
While Linda received a degree in English, and Jay's was in Fisheries Biology, their dream was to become homebuilders. Growing up in Northern California, they love the outdoors and can often be found hiking in upper Bidwell Park, Lassen National Park, or cross-country skiing at Lake Almanor.
Their diverse educational backgrounds and a strong environmental awareness has helped shape their unique business model for Shastan Homes.
