JEO is proud to announce that Eric Casper, PLA, ASLA, has joined our team as senior landscape architect/project manager in our Lincoln, Nebraska, office. He brings more than 20 years of award-winning project experience to JEO, where his expertise in site design will enhance many projects across the firm.
Casper specializes in all areas of landscape architecture, from sports parks, urban design, and park master plans to project management and community engagement. Prior to joining JEO, he served as the lead landscape architect for the Doane College Master Plan (Crete, NE) and he managed several projects with the City of Lincoln, NE. Additionally, he has overseen several athletic facility design projects throughout his career, including field and track design, grading, drainage, and spectator amenities. Sustainability is a cornerstone of Casper’s career and he is passionate about sustainable landscapes and methods of storm water management.
Sharing his professional knowledge is part of what makes Casper tick, and he can often be found doing just that with co-workers, clients—and university students. He’s currently a landscape architecture guest lecturer in the Agronomy and Horticulture department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). Previously, he held an adjunct faculty position at the UNL College of Architecture.
Casper’s enthusiasm about joining JEO is apparent. “This opportunity allows me to share my landscape architecture knowledge with our clients,” he shares, “and I look forward to working with them to create memorable, innovative facilities that are functional and provide enduring enjoyment for everyone.”
Mike Malone, JEO’s Transportation Department Leader, echoes that sentiment. “I’m elated to have Eric join our team. His experience and deep client relationships in site planning and landscape architecture will facilitate our growth in these areas, allowing us to take on increasingly interesting and complex projects.”
Casper belongs to several professional organizations, including the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), Nebraska Board of Landscape Architects (for which he served as board chairman for five years), Great Plains Chapter of ASLA, Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Board, and the American Sports Builders Association.
