Meet our team
Craig J. Tice – President
Craig grew up in White Bear Lake, MN and after earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Operations Management from the University St. Thomas, he studied Architectural Drafting & Design and Estimating at Dunwoody College of Technology. Following a three-year stint with a custom builder in Stillwater, Craig started Tice Construction Inc. in 1991 which specializes in Vacation Homes in Nothwestern Wisconsin. Craig has since acquired and grown both Tice-Hause Design Build specializing in custom homes and remodeling in the St Croix Valley area and J.G. Hause Construction, which services the entire metro area with residential and commercial/multi-unit exteriors. Tice received the Big50 Award from Remodeling Magazine in 2002. A uniquely meaningful honor based on the recognition of industry owner/peers as one of the 50 best run companies in the nation. In addition to his leadership role within his own company, Craig has become an active steward of several industry organizations including the National Remodeling Leadership Council, National Association of Home Builders, National Association of the Remodeling Industry, Northland Area Builders Association, and the Wisconsin Builders Association. Craig’s continuous pursuit of excellence has created success for all three of his companies, their staff and clients. And when he isn’t patiently building others up, he’s sailing on Lake superior with family and friends.
Julia Tice – Director Of Marketing
How do you find a marketing director you can trust? You marry her. Julia has been helping small businesses shine for more than twenty-five years. She did her degree work in marketing at Condordia University in St. Paul, where she earned Summa Cum Laude. She also has her social media master certification from Splash Media U. Julia has done a lot of great pro-bono work for her favorite causes over the years. She began her media career as an Account Manager at WLTE FM and while she was a top sales performer there, the creative process was what really lit her up, so she started Lighthouse Marketing Media which is a local company based in Stillwater with many recognizable companies in her resume of clients over the years. From strategy to brand identity to splashy social media and digital marketing campaigns Julia has marketing in her DNA and when you couple that with business ownership, you pretty much reach superhero status. She’s also a doting mom and animal saver, so sainthood is probably next.
Bill Schoonover – General Manager
Bill’s leadership qualities and unique skill set made him a perfect fit for the GM position at Tice Hause Design/Build and JG Hause Construction. With a BA in Political Science from Gustavus Adolphus, he gets how to run a smooth and seamless operation and keep the staff accountable the customers happy. From early life experience swinging a hammer to seeing a project through from start to finish, Bill knows what it takes to get the job done and more importantly, to do the job well. Having worked in the construction industry for 30 years, he has been there and done that. Bill is laser focused on exceeding expectations. With his ride or die attitude he enjoys building a solid and talented team. His goal is to get customers singing the company’s praises…and maybe he will join in too, and why not, he is an Opera singer after all. After having lived around the country, Bill’s odometer is spinning less these days, as he has planted roots in Stillwater. He and his wife and daughter enjoy a hobby farm, or what they like to call it -a mini zoo. They enjoy a slew of furry friends, including dogs, bunny’s, cats, goats, horses, and llamas. When he is not coaching the team, you can find him giving guided bike tours, tending to the farm, and cooking fabulous food for his family and friends. Another interesting fact about Bill is he can see the forest through all kinds of trees, literally, because Bill is also an arborist. What doesn’t Bill do?
Mary Place – Controller
Mary is great at all the stuff most people aren’t, like accounting and human resources. With several years of administration experience in both residential and commercial construction, no one is better equipped to oversee our budget, payroll, financial analysis and more. If it has a decimal point, it’s Mary’s domain. She’s also a whiz at enforcing internal controls, policy and procedure, keeping everyone in line…with each other and our professional partners. She makes it feel like things are always under control. No one has a more fitting title.
Tommy Parent – Sales & Project Manager
Tommy is as resourceful as they come and all the things he does at J.G. Hause perfectly suit his skill set. He’s a whiz at sales, an excellent production manager, and incredibly nimble in assisting with many facets of our residential and commercial, multi-unit and single family home exteriors. Tommy has decades of experience with exteriors and also happens to be an expert in commercial flat roofing and storm damage. He’s a great communicator who we rely on to interface with property managers and municipalities on commercial and public projects. And, as his name would indicate, he’s great Dad.
Jamie Iverson – Inspection & Quality Control
Jamie has been with J.G. Hause for over 20 years. Aside from being an expert in all things roofing, he brings to each job an in-depth understanding of residential and commercial construction, an eye for quality, and excellent people skills, which is why he’s our front-of-the-Hause customer liaison ensuring all work meets strict industry standards and any warranty-related inquiries are promptly addressed and resolved.
Steve Hammerschmidt – Sales and Production
Steve is our newest addition, and, because we think outside the blueprint, he’s the first high school band teacher we’ve had on staff. He’s also a handyman, semi-professional fisherman, and has a side hustle selling fishing lures online. A detail-oriented, organized, family man, we admired Steve’s stellar personality and trained him from the ground up. He’s part of our Remodeling and Addition sales team and we look forward to watching him build an incredible career with us.
