Jesse Stewart

Company: Casto Technical Services
Title: Training Director
Age: 29

Jesse Stewart is extremely dedicated to the HVAC industry. He started his career in 2017 by going to trade school at night while still working. While attending trade school, he was placed at Casto Technical Services as an apprentice. It was obvious early on that this person was going to make it and have a great career in HVAC.

“Once I started working there, I was placed into another training program which really accelerated my growth in the trade,” Jesse said.

While an apprentice, Jesse was always the first to show up and the last to leave. He always wanted extra reading assignments or podcasts to listen to. It didn’t take long for him to gain the skills and experience necessary to start working on his own as a service technician. While a service technician, Jesse still wanted to be involved in apprentice and technician training — not just as a technician, but as a trainer. He wanted to help build and teach lessons and training labs and would regularly volunteer his off hours to do so.

This passion for training led to him being awarded the job of training supervisor at Casto. As training supervisor, he creates, manages, and provides training for all of the company’s technicians and staff. He also manages 15-20 apprentices and entry-level technicians.

“My HVAC goals are to continue my education in all facets of the trade and use what I learn to train the next generation of service/controls technicians and to help to fill the skill gap and promote our trade in the most positive way possible. As well as to become a RESET Air AP and pursue the certified energy manger certification from AEE,” Jesse said.
