Title: Service Technician
Age: 37

Jerry Crepezzi got involved in the HVAC industry by making a career change in his mid-30s. Having served in the United States Marine Corps as a communications electronics specialist, he had always been intrigued with electrical work.

“HVAC requires a wide range of technical skill sets (electrical, refrigeration, plumbing, metal fabrication, etc.), and soft skills working with customers. I completed a Veteran Readiness and Employment program with Veterans Affairs which allowed me to go back to school, where I obtained my electrical lineman certification, HVAC certification, and commercial/residential electrician certification,” Jerry said. “I found the HVAC field more challenging due to the various skill sets needed to succeed, which is why I ventured into this field of work. Marines are always up for challenges.”

His dedication to caring for his clients’ needs is second to none. He’s honest, hardworking, and willing to do anything that is asked. Jerry’s knowledge and understanding of the industry improves each day. He is open to training, change, and trying new things.

“My career HVAC goals are to improve technically, grow professionally, and continue to find different ways to enhance the customer’s experience — whether it be through hands-on experience, on-the-job training, or continuing education,” Jerry said. “Having only been in the trade two years, I am learning something new in the field every day. I find value in my work and troubleshooting problems, which is why furthering my education is important to me.”
