Al-Iman Center
Sheik Mohamed Elsayed Chairman, Board of Trustees

As the Chairman of the Al-Iman Center, I was given the responsibility to find and hire an architectural team to reconstruct the existing mosque and expand the structure into an elementary school for young Muslims in Astoria, Queens. Based on Jacqueline Velez’s rigorous design background, construction management skills, and experience with building code and zoning, we decided to hire JMV Architect, PLLC. Without a doubt, Jacqueline and her team surpassed our expectations by creating a welcoming space that resembles unity, peace, and purpose.

We were highly impressed by Jacqueline’s design qualities to create a complex that was inspired by Islamic architecture. She paid attention to us to understand who we are, where we come from, and what we want the new education and religious center to do. She completed a thorough analysis of the site, of the events at the Mosque and how it operated throughout the years. She successfully maximized the permitted floor area to allow users to experience the educational center completely.

It was a pleasure to work with Jacqueline and her team. Jacqueline constantly provided updates with the design and construction phases. She walked us through the process of renovating the existing mosque and the inclusion of a new structure. She provided us with multiple design schemes to ensure our vision goals are met.

Al-Iman Center is beyond grateful to Jacqueline and her team for her dedication to making our vision come true to include a safe space for the Muslim community. We recommend JMV Architect, PLLC, for a great design outcome, professionalism, and efficiency. Thank you, Jacqueline!

Abundant Life Baptist Church
Deacon Thomas Gyamfi Chairman, Board of Trustees

Mrs. Jacqueline Velez, whom we affectionately call Jackie, the iron lady, Abundant Life Baptist Church and I would like to express how much we appreciate your services as an outstanding, one of a kind Architect. You are truly one of the most professional women that the church has every known and worked with – you exemplify respect and dignity.

You are our hero. You managed to find a way to renovate our building where as other architects told us that it would not be possible.

You took on the challenge and walked us through the pros and cons of the project and if we had not listened to you, we would have made a huge mistake. Your words were hopeful and determined as you told us when we first met, “this job is going to be difficult but I know that I can get it done.” And as you said, you made it happen.

Your vast architectural experience and deep knowledge of New York City building codes are beyond imaginable. Your timely visits and site meetings with the contractors and sub-consultants really paid off.

Your professional recommendations stood out when we needed them the most. The church would not have been able to see the surmountable costs coming our way.

The Church is grateful for all you achieved and did for us and our community. We recommend you fully, 100%, you and your team of professionals. Kudos Jackie!
