Deputy Executive Director For Engineering and Land Management
Jack Vega is responsible for managing the Moorefield property, including engineering, planning and entitlements for the Foundation’s primary land asset. Jack began his engineering career with Dewberry working in water resources and land development projects throughout in Northern Virginia. As a practicing engineer for 3 decades, Jack holds Professional Engineer licensure in 9 states and became a Designated Plans Examiner in Loudoun County. In 1999, he transitioned to a position at Toll Brothers, where he began his long association with Moorefield in the early 2000s. While he enjoyed his career, engineering, planning, and entitling land development projects for large master-planned communities in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, Moorefield always had a special place for him. Moorefield is a transformational project for the Loudoun County community, with 9.75 Million square feet of non-residential entitlements and 6,000 residential entitlements on the property, making it Loudoun’s largest zoning case. While fascinating for many reasons, such as its location (adjacent to the Ashburn Metro Station), its multimodal design (incorporating rail, bus, trails and cars), its magnitude and more, it is the impact that it has had and will continue to have in the local community that he enjoys the most. The community-based approach and acting as a steward of this much-coveted location, is only augmented by the Foundation’s vision and mission.
Jack holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Virginia Tech. He is a past President of the Committee for Dulles, an Executive Board Member of Virginia Tech’s Land Development Design Initiative (LDDI), a past member of the Board of Directors for the Engineers and Surveyors Institute (ESI). Jack is passionate about STEM education and is a Board Member of the ACE Mentor Program of Frederick County and supports the MATHCOUNTS™ Competition through the National Society of Professional Engineers. He is also a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and a past President of the Bull Run Chapter.
