James Keller attended Brigham Young University where he received both a B.S. and M.S. in Civil and Structural Engineering. He also attended the University of California, Berkeley where he completed his course work for his PhD, which consisted of three years in structural mechanics. Before completing his dissertation, he was offered a partnership in a consulting engineering firm in Idaho.
Keller has 35 years of consulting engineering experiences throughout five different states. He is the founder, CEO, and President of Keller Associates—a consulting engineering firm with offices in four states. Keller started the company in 1991 with only a secretary. The company is now owned by eleven key engineers who employee sixty others. Keller has had many callings and has served three separate missions (two with his wife). He served in the Guadalajara Mexico Mission as first counselor in the presidency as well as in the South America South Area, where he developed the activation and actualization processes.
Keller and his wife have one daughter and five sons. All sons are eagle scouts, served missions, have at least a B.S. degree, and are now successfully employed or have their own business. Their daughter is a registered nurse, mother of six children and wife of a great husband, father and attorney. The Keller’s have 14 grandchildren with ages ranging from nine months, to sixteen. Keller enjoys bike riding, snowmobiling, water skiing, reading good books, studying the scriptures, talking to clients and any activity with his lovely sweetheart. He also cherishes activities with family and friends.
Keller also received his brother's kidney, saving not only his life, but his brother's as well.
