Jason is a highly sought after designer who has partnered with residential and commercial clients in the Philadelphia region for the past 20 years. First as a BArch graduate of Philadelphia University, then as a designer for local Philadelphia firms, before founding the Rissay Ltd. design/build partnership in 2003 and J.THOM Residential Design and Materials in 2011.
In addition to designing many Philadelphia area luxury residences, he has also designed high profile retail spaces such as the Art in the Age store/tasting room and the Tamworth Lyceum café/event space.
Jason has always married a passion for design with a strong personal vision and the commitment to deliver beautiful, successful projects. He is known for taking cues from the project site, listening intently to clients, and conducting thorough research before putting pencil to paper, resulting in designs that are an honest reflection of the client and the space. He effortlessly harmonizes quality modern and traditional products, turning often opposing styles and products into unique and successful designs.
He takes immense pride in knowing that most of J.THOM’s current clients are referrals from former clients, return customers and admirers of his work throughout the Philadelphia region.
