Our Team


Mark S. Densmore, P.E., S.I., DFE, FRSE - Principal Partner


Mark graduated with a BSCE with high distinction from Worcester Polytechnic Institute.  He has 28 years of experience (23 years in Florida) in the design and inspection of a variety of structural engineering projects, which includes 13 years of forensic investigative experience, and Mark is a board-certified diplomate in forensic engineering (DFE).  In addition, Mark is a Florida Board Recognized Structural Engineer (FRSE).

As a registered professional engineer (P.E.) in 15 states, Mark has authored more than 1,800 civil/structural forensic engineering reports; 500-plus sinkhole and structural damage reports and inspected 1000+ residential and 100+ commercial structures.

In addition, Mark is a Florida special (threshold) inspector (S.I.). In Florida, a threshold building primarily refers to any building which is greater than three (3) stories or 50 feet in height. Selecting a Florida Special (Threshold) Inspector to provide the milestone inspection on your condominium ensures your professional engineer has designed and inspected structural components on threshold buildings.

He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM); International Code Council (ICC) and the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE).

Mark enjoys cooking Italian food for his family in his free time and traveling.

Jesse W. Curtis, P.E. - Principal Partner


Jesse has 11+ years of experience, including 5+ years in Florida, in the design and inspection of a variety of structural engineering projects. Many of these projects involved forensic investigations. He authored more than 150 structural forensic engineering/structural damage reports and inspected commercial and residential structures required for Florida Threshold Inspection. He is a member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Jesse is a graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. He was a pitcher on the Gator baseball team and was named to the Southeastern Conference All-Academic Team. Two of his three children attend the University of Florida and play football and soccer for the Gators. His passion and talent for forensic engineering emerged in high school when he created a model of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge from popsicle sticks and wrote a paper comparing the ill-fated original bridge to the current design.
