Ken Long, PLS & CEO, founded Western Engineers & Surveyors, Inc. after serving in Special Forces during Vietnam. He is a Licensed Professional Surveyor and has over 40 years of experience providing multiple services to the local community. He was born and raised along the Washington/Idaho border, and has a love of the Pacific Northwest for all it has to offer. After meeting his wife in college and having children, he moved the family to Everett, received his Professional Surveyor License and hung his shingle as a Service Disabled Veteran. In his spare time, he plays outdoors whenever possible either snowmobiling, river rafting, or flying. If you miss him at the office midday, most times you can find him at a local Subway having what he claims are “the best sandwiches”…yuuummm. Email Ken Long

Jesse Jarrell, Principal Engineer, leads the Engineering department and has been with WESI since 2004. As a Licensed Professional Engineer, after receiving his degree from WSU, he has become very experienced working with most jurisdictions throughout the surrounding area. Born and raised in Snohomish, Jesse is very familiar with the history, and growth in the Snohomish & King counties. In his spare time he tries to get in a round of golf (weather permitting), or go snowboarding, and mentors local high school students participating in a robotics club. He also enjoys traveling with his wife whenever possible and playing cards; favorite game – Cards Against Humanity…hilarious! Email Jesse Jarrell

Mike Long, Survey Manager, has been with WESI since 2002, yet has been working in the land surveying industry for nearly 25 years. Mike oversees the LS department and coordinates the field crew scheduling. He has a keen eye for detail and places a great importance on customer satisfaction building long term client relationships. Raised in the greater south Everett area, Mike moved out of state for a few short years to work for a large elevator company before returning to his roots, and shortly thereafter, starting his own family. In his free time, he enjoys riding motorcycles, trap shooting, and traveling abroad. Keep in mind that although Mike may appear to be big and tough, at heart he is very sentimental guy- when the timing was right, he whisked his family off to Australia and got married in the same church his grandparents did so many years ago….aaawwweee what a big softie.
