Janet and Leo’s son, Jon, returns to Wanzek. After graduating with a degree in Civil Engineering, Jon had struck out on his own for a time, working for Mortenson and Northwest Airlines (now Delta) for several years. The connections made and experience gained during that time would prove useful for Wanzek's future growth.
Jon and his new wife, Lori, who was also a Civil Engineer, weren't afraid to get their hands dirty for the success of Wanzek. When Jon came back, our pool building business was struggling. Both Jon and Lori went to certified pool operators class, where they learned to do everything from paint scraping to fixing pipe leaks. Jon also took over estimating, bidding and project management of the pool division.
