About

Jason Black

Jason is born and raised in Louisville, Ky and is married to his longtime love and college sweetheart Gretchen and they have three wonderful sons Austin, Noah and Max.  He graduated from Saint Xavier High School and then received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Bellarmine University. He went on to work for a couple of local fortune 500 companies and was climbing the corporate ladder and while there earned his Master in Business Administration from Bellarmine University. Although he was successful in his corporate career he never found the passion for his work he was hoping for.  Jason decided to follow his true passion of houses and particularly new homes.  So in 2002 he founded his first construction company while still working full time and started the process of learning how to be a custom home builder.   It was a slow process but he built one or two homes a year until he learned the industry.  In 2004 he co founded his second home building company Stonecroft Homes.  As he progressed as a builder he moved on to create his current and most proud venture of Artisan Signature Homes. Over the years Jason has served on the Board of Directors of the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville and Norton Commons YMCA.  Jason currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Southern Living Custom Building Program. Norton Commons has been a great focus for Jason during his career as he has overseen the construction of over 100 homes in the traditional neighborhood setting.
