Jean Christy, PE

Senior Engineer

“Tighe & Bond has given me the opportunity to balance a successful career while providing the flexibility to serve my community and family. The challenge of discovering solutions to complex problems is rewarding and allows me to continue to learn and grow through interactions with clients and peers.”

Senior Engineer Jean Christy has been part of the Tighe & Bond team since 2012 and has 18 years of experience in management, design, permitting, and construction of civil engineering design projects. As a key member of the Land Use and Transportation group, Jean’s expertise has enabled her to work on projects ranging from site and roadway design to complex stormwater management analyses. She is a recognized professional in Massachusetts and Connecticut with her understanding of hydrology and hydraulics, and compliance with both local and state regulations.

Jean provides design assistance and quality control reviews of Tighe & Bond’s stormwater management designs, including both traditional and green infrastructure designs as well as rural large-scale developments. Her professional interests in green infrastructure and low-impact development approaches to stormwater management are advantageous in urban and campus-centric designs. In addition, Jean regularly provides third party reviews to communities throughout Massachusetts in their review of complex land-use and environmental permit applications.

Jean was recognized by Western Massachusetts’ BusinessWest as a 40 Under 40 leader in 2019.

Life Outside of Work

When not working with her team at Tighe & Bond, Jean is dedicating her time to her non-profit. In 2016, she founded Three’s Company T1D Support in honor of her three children. The organization’s mission is to raise awareness about type 1 diabetes and provide support for families living with the disease. Through this non-profit, Jean and her family organize fundraising events to support research for a cure and better treatment of the disease.
