Walter Construction Owners

Managing Partners

Shelease & Jesse Rittenhouse

Jesse and Shelease started Walter Roofing + Solar because they truly care about people and wanted to put a stop to insurance companies taking advantage of people. They have worked together in the construction industry for 5 years, and are very grateful to be in their current position. Jesse has lived in Iowa his whole life, while Shelease moved here from New Jersey in 2015 when they met. They have two children. How could we forget, they are HUGE DOG LOVERS, hence the backstory behind the Walter Construction name. Outside of work, they like to exercise and eat good food.
