Jeffrey E. Cobble, AIA
President and Chief Operating Officer
K-12 Design Leader
K-12 facility design has always fascinated me. After first working on a middle school over 25 years ago, I've focused my career on perfecting the role that architecture has in the support of education. When a school is designed properly, it can truly enhance a child's educational experience. The ability to positively affect people's lives through architecture makes this a great profession, and I'm proud to work with the great people here at our firm.
Jeff has been with Harvard Jolly since 1986. In 2010 he was named president and chief operating officer where he leads the firm's day-to-day operations. He is well regarded as an expert in the design of K-12 facilities, and is on the forefront of educational design trends. Jeff has written and presented on how the architecture and environment provided by a school can affect the success of its students.
He is actively involved with the Florida Educational Facilities Planners Association (FEFPA) and the Council of Education Facilities Planners International. Jeff has also co-authored a number of white papers in collaboration with the International Center for Leadership in Education including: Color in an Optimum Learning Environment and The Environment of the Struggling Learner. Jeff is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati.
