Jesse DeBenedictis

OWNER AND CONSTRUCTION GURU

Jesse DeBenedictis started his first company in the eighth grade, gardening and landscaping for local families. A few years after college, he realized that construction, from digging foundations to designing custom carpentry, was his first love and he founded WORKS. He says, “As a general contractor and a leader, you have to be constantly creative and on your toes.” He brings that creativity, experience, and commitment to every job on Boston’s North Shore.

Jason Simonetty

PROJECT MANAGER

Jason is responsible for overseeing the details that go into producing a WORKS project. He enjoys “making sure that everything in a homeowner’s plan is as they have anticipated—bringing a vision from paper to a physical structure.” He encourages clients to select materials (fixtures, tile, flooring, and so on) as early as possible to avoid potential issues with delivery and scheduling. “For me, the exciting part is seeing the project coming to life while knowing that all of the details are in place and decisions have been made.”

Jeff Drinkwater

LEAD CARPENTER

Jeff Drinkwater is a professional carpenter, born and raised in Beverly, Massachusetts where he now lives with his family. He grew up helping in his father’s excavation company and says, “It helps to know a little bit about everything in construction.” His chief passion is for high quality carpentry in homes with interesting character.

Mark Baldassari

LEAD PAINTER

Mark has over 13 years experience in the construction field, with experience in all areas of construction from frame to finish. His expertise is in painting, possessing knowledge and skills in all applications and techniques. He firmly believes that proper substrate preparation and choosing only the finest products is the key to a perfect paint job. He will work tirelessly to ensure a quality job and a satisfied client throughout an enjoyable process.

Terri Mitchell

CONTROLLER

Terri takes care of all of WORKS’ accounts, including invoices, billing, and accounts payable. With five brothers in the construction trades (including plumbing and electrical), she has great respect for the WORKS team in the field. She says, “I like the team in the office, too. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.”

Fill Grekos
