What truly differentiates J.S. Held is our people — world-class talent driven by a common set of core values. Together, these shared values inspire a culture of integrity, excellence, teamwork, and service.


Mark Tylicki is based out of Hudson, Ohio, and joined J.S. Held in 2018 as a Director within our Building Consulting Practice. Prior to 2020, Mark’s role focused on commercial losses, but presently he looks at everything from small residential to large commercial manufacturing losses.

Mark describes himself as personable, getting along well with others, and enjoying being around people from all walks of life. He emphasizes the importance of this trait in his current role due to the amount of people involved on a typical project. “I’m not shy to strike up a conversation with anybody, and I think it’s helped me in the insurance and restoration arena—nowadays, specifically, because you rarely meet clients in person due to COVID.”


“Mark has been an extraordinary addition to our Ohio Building Consulting team. He’s extremely hardworking, and his work knowledge is surpassed only by his willingness to help his teammates and clients, no matter the size of the task. In the short time that he has been with us, he’s developed lasting relationships with many new clients and rekindled relationships with prior clients.”

Prior to joining J.S. Held, Mark worked as an insurance restoration contractor (water and fire), estimator, project manager, and marketer for eight years. Before that, he was a general contractor for 14 years and has experience in custom home and condominium building as well as retail and commercial construction.

Mark grew up surrounded by family members working in the construction industry and started his first construction job in high school. After high school graduation, he initially went to college to study Computer Science. Still, he decided to pursue a career in construction when asked by one of his cousins, who was already in the business. “I was young when I started [in construction],” Mark says, “I learned quickly and was willing to learn on the fly, without previous experience. That helped me develop great organization and problem-solving abilities.”

Mark eventually established his own company, operating it for a while before moving on to work for a larger property restoration company. “I was brought on as an expert to apply my commercial expertise,” he explains. Years later, while working as a water and fire restoration contractor, Mark began meeting J.S. Held consultants, who often clerked the larger losses he was overseeing. “One of these consultants, Trey Quelette, introduced me to what it was like to be a consultant versus a contractor,” says Mark, “He eventually offered me a position with J.S. Held. It took him about a year, but he got me on board.”

Professional Interests

These days, Mark works with other practice groups within J.S. Held more than ever and on a wide range of projects. This is due, in part, to the effects of the global pandemic, he explains, as well as the increasing number of projects with overlapping issues or client needs. Currently, Mark is the only expert with his role and skill set based in the Hudson, OH area and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the local building consulting team. Mark loves being able to create connections between clients and other experts when complex cases arise. “It’s nice being able to add value to these relationships on the spot,” he says, “One of the ways I can help clients is by introducing them to experts with the specialized expertise they need,” he says.

Over the last year, Mark has been involved on a large number of assignments with fire damage. He has performed damage assessments on everything from steel mill fires to nursing home fires to everyday house fires. It’s not unusual for all to occur in a single week or even just a few days. He enjoys the daily change of scenery and says, “I’m rarely at a desk, and I take great pride in the quality of the work product and service I deliver to clients.”

Mark is also regularly engaged as a project monitor and provides oversight as “things get put back together.” In addition to monitoring he has a passion for the detailed work of estimating, and he enjoys the realm of construction overall because it encompasses all his interests and thoroughly leverages his expertise.

Personal Interests

Mark and his family enjoy spending most of their weekends at the family lake house. “We’re there almost every week during the spring and summer months,” he says, “We really enjoy all aspects of being in and around the lake.” Prior to 2020 and pandemic-related social restrictions, Mark spent time coaching his son’s football team and volunteering at his family’s church and his children’s school, helping with events such as Night at the Races.


“Family is not just an important thing; it is everything.”
