Jake’s Story

Hello! I’m Jake.

Painting isn’t what I’m passionate about (though, from an early age, I have enjoyed working with my hands).

Throughout high school, college, and post-college, I’ve worked for several contractors – building custom homes out of Buxton, ND.

Framing, roofing, concrete, siding, painting… I’ve been thoroughly connected to all aspects of a custom build.

Yet, while I enjoyed these jobs, I wanted to work more closely with people.

After graduating high school, I attended the University of North Dakota.

I landed in education, graduating with a degree preparing me to teach high school English.

While I never thought I’d end up in a classroom reading, “To Kill a Mockingbird”, I love teaching.

Students bring so much joy and laughter to life!

Having the privilege to serve students in the community is truly a passion that keeps my work fulfilling.

Recently, I furthered this pursuit gaining my Master’s in Education from the University of Jamestown.

My career in education left summers open.

And with this opportunity came the birth of Great Plains Painters.

As a licensed contractor, I will organize your project to fulfill your needs openly and honestly.

Painting isn’t what I’m passionate about; I’m passionate about people.

Painting is an area of expertise that enables me to serve people.

I love bringing your project and vision into fruition, while connecting with you every step of the way.

Thanks again,

Jake Snyder, owner of Great Plains Painters
