In addition to celebrating 75 years of building with purpose, VJS Construction Services is also excited to announce the appointment of two new partners. As a family company, we are proud of our legacy and commitment to devoting talent and creativity to build places that transform life and work.
It is with great pride that we announce Allie Jorgensen and Joe Jorgensen’s promotion to partner effective October 1, 2022. Please join us in congratulating them on this major accomplishment.
Allie has been involved in the construction industry since 2008 when she started as an intern at VJS. She oversees all project facets and has experience with all phases of a construction project.

She is a 2022 recipient of Freida Rothman’s Woman of Strength award. Allie is passionate about continuing her family’s legacy of giving back to the community through her board and committee service for several local community organizations.
"I am extremely excited and honored to be joining the VJS partnership team. VJS has been committed to building the greater Milwaukee community for 75 years and I am grateful for the opportunity to continue the legacy of building with purpose in communities throughout Milwaukee and the state of Wisconsin as well as constructing meaningful projects for our clients. I am looking forward to representing the next generation of leadership while working in tandem with my brothers, father, uncle, grandfather." – Allie Jorgensen

"VJS Construction Services has been such a huge part of my life since the day I was born. It is incredibly humbling to have the honor and opportunity to be a partner alongside my father, uncle, and two siblings as well as four other partners who I have viewed as mentors since I was a kid. My grandfather, Gary, helped lay the groundwork for this next generation, and it is now our responsibility to carry on the legacy of VJS' founders. I don't take this opportunity lightly; I view it as my duty to best serve our community. I have had the pleasure of working alongside our great clients over the years and I am excited to have the opportunity to continue building those relationships. I am committed to collaborating with our clients to build their dreams and transform the Milwaukee skyline and beyond." – Joe Jorgensen
