As I look to the future, I have no immediate plans to retire. I enjoy the work I do and the people I work with. Construction is a great industry, and I’m very happy that I found Essex and my family here! Let’s continue to build stuff together!!


Tell me about your history working for Essex General Construction.

I’ve worked at Essex for 18 years but have worked with Essex’s President Jon Texter on and off since 1976.
