Foreman Focus Friday: Jack Angeline

February 17th 2017

It never ceases to amaze us how many great folks are second and third generations in the trades! Our wonderful Owner Direct Projects (ODP) Field Supervisor, Sheet Metal Foreman Jack Angeline represents generation #3 in his family!

You see, Jack’s grandfather was a lifer in Local 66, as was his father, Jack Sr., who retired from Hermanson Company in 2014, having spent the last decade of his career with us. His mom also worked in the industry, so it’s not a surprise that our guy – Jack Jr. – chose a career in Sheet Metal. Jack has been at Hermanson Company for over 20 years now, the last ten working with Scott Ponsler in SPD and now as the field lead for ODP.

Jack is always up for a challenge, and this is why he is enjoying the jig-saw puzzle coordination of his recent work completing multi-unit swap-outs of RTU’s for a variety of customers. This includes work at Park East (Phase 1 – 10 units / Phase 2 – 12 units) and Clover Park School District (Year 1 – 53 units / Year 2 – 48 units). In his first job as a site superintendent, Jack worked at Lochburn Middle School, replacing 48 units in just 10 weeks, and he says they had a blast! But the real challenge was a Trane Energy Upgrade project in Redmond in 2009. Working as a Journeyman under Jes Stewart, they changed out 109 furnaces in five schools in just 10 weeks! Now that was fast and furious!

A local kid (Tacoma / Federal Way / Bonney Lake), Jack has been married to his wonderful wife Kari for almost 12 years and they have two great children, 9-year old son Evan and 5-year-old daughter Addy. These lucky kids (and Mom & Dad) are getting ready for a trip to “The Happiest Place on Earth”, DISNEYLAND right now! Jack says that one of the things he most enjoys at Hermanson is that it feels like family! And it’s fun for us to watch Jack and his family grow and thrive as well!

Jack’s advice to others in the industry is to keep your head down and keep on going! Jack, you’ve done that and more, and you are a real asset to Hermanson Company!

Thanks Jack!

 


When he’s not at work, Jack loves fiddling around with old cars. In fact, he currently has a ’67 Chevelle torn down to the frame and ready for restoration. You know, we really do need to get that Hermanson Car Show idea off the ground this summer! That would give you a deadline, Jack! We can’t wait to see that muscle car out on the street again!
