About Jason Pettigrew, Assoc. AIA

Jason dedicated much of his time towards the development and growth of others and was committed to community and professional service through the AIA. He touched many lives through his engagement and AIA leadership roles at the local, state, and national levels. As a member of the first NAC Executive Board, Jason was instrumental in the formation of the NAC. He also served multiple years as an intern representative to the IDP Coordinating Committee and contributed to the development of the AIA Emerging Professional’ Companion released in 2004.

Ana Guerra, Assoc. AIA, 2005 Associate Representative to the AIA Executive Committee and former NAC Chair, stated, “Jason was committed to the future of the profession and kept all of our heads turned in the right direction–toward progress. He was an architecture intern’s strongest advocate on many fronts and created conversations for all of the profession to work as one.”

Jason graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver with his Master of Architecture in June 2000. At work, Jason maintained fervor for every project and activity in which he was involved. He had a particular passion for religious architecture and worked on an “Interfaith Sacred Space” as part of a competition sponsored by the AIA Interfaith Forum on Religious Art and Architecture. He was active in the Episcopal Diocese of Denver as a member of the Commission on Church Architecture and the Allied Arts, and was an active member of St. John’s Episcopal Church.

Jason’s passion also extended to the outdoors and he enjoyed hiking, climbing, and camping. These experiences informed his dedication to a sustainable world, and he became a strong advocate for sustainable architecture. His desire to climb all of the 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado became a goal equal to his desire to obtain his architectural license.

He was equally committed to the community of the American Institute of Architects where he was devoted in his support and development of the Associate Architect. He published numerous articles, championed committees, and led special events. Jason influenced his firm in many ways including serving as an advocate for community outreach. Jason’s own words, taken from his nomination for “Associate AIA Member of the Year Award,” submitted on his behalf in April 2004, encapsulate his dedication: “I believe service to our community is part of our responsibility as architects.”
