Founded in 1949 by Dietrich W. Jessen ,Sr., D.W. Jessen & Associates is one of the most respected civil engineering and land surveying firms in Southwest Louisiana and has been for over sixty years. With deep family roots in this area, his son, D. "Walt" Jessen, Jr., continues the legacy as President and CEO, providing professional engineering and land surveying expertise with personal integrity and responsibility.

D.W. Jessen & Associates has a long established history with many public, private, and industrial clients in Southwest Louisiana. Since 1953 the firm has been fortunate to serve the City of Lake Charles by providing a wide range of engineering services to improve and expand the municipal infrastructure, including water treatment and distribution, wastewater treatment and collection, street paving, and storm drainage. The firm was also heavily involved in the design and construction of the Lake Charles Civic Center Complex, opened to the public in 1972 and more recently the Bord du Lac Park Marina which opened in September of 2010 as an extension to the Civic Center Complex.

D.W. Jessen & Associates was instrumental in the development of the original Lake Charles Municipal Airport, completed in 1961. Hurricane Rita devastated the region in 2005, including the original airport terminal building. The firm was fortunate to follow in the footsteps of its founder and be involved in the construction of the new Lake Charles Regional Airport terminal building, which opened to the public in August of 2009. In addition, D.W. Jessen & Associates is well represented in the numerous private subdivision developments and private land surveys.

The firm's goal is to continue serving clients in Southwest Louisiana for years to come.
