Meet Our Team: Ron!

We’d like to introduce you to one of our Service Technicians, Ron!

Ron has been with Jandel Homes for seven wonderful years and we love having him as part of our team. Even though Ron has only been with Jandel for the past 7 years, he has been working in the home building industry for over 30…25 of those in the modular industry…talk about experience! While he spends a good portion of his weeks out on the road servicing our customers’ homes, we always make sure to catch up when he’s back in the office!

Early in his career, Ron received his ticket in heavy duty mechanics but decided it wasn’t for him. From Peace River, where he grew up, he moved to Cranbrook, BC where he was a bartender and did siding installation on homes.  His modular home career started in Cranbrook and after working in BC and Grande Prairie, Ron has settled in the Edmonton area and we’re glad he has!

If you’ve purchased a home from us, there’s a good chance you’ve seen his friendly face stop by for post-delivery touch-ups and general maintenance. Our customers absolutely love his gentle spirit!

When Ron isn’t on the job, you can find him relaxing around his large acreage west of Stony Plain with Joanne and their two boys. They have 5 dogs, 3 cats, 1 bird and 6 horses…and they board a few more. Talk about busy! To quote Joanne, “having not grown up around horses, he’s golden with them”.

You could say Ron is a jack of all trades.  He loves wood working, cooking and can build anything and everything. Whether it’s related to electrical, plumbing or motors, Ron will tackle it.

Ron has four children [all boys], four grandchildren [3 boys and 1 girl] and two brothers.  His Mom and Dad still live in Peace River and he willingly takes the service calls in that area so he can visit!

Every year, our very sought after ‘Jandel Cup’ is up for grabs for an outstanding team member and their commitment to excellence. This year, Ron was awarded The Cup for an amazing ‘Jandea’ (idea) that he submitted to our Innovation Committee. Not only did we immediately implement his idea, but he also managed to save the company quite a bit of money from his cost-savings ideas.

Take a look at what some of Ron’s co-workers have to say!

“Having worked with Ron for the past 7 years, I can honestly say he is truly a great guy and I’m very glad to call him my friend.  Ron has a heart of gold and will give you the coat off his back if you needed it. He is very genuine and caring and will do anything for anybody.  To quote my boyfriend Dave, “there is probably no one more trustworthy and honest than that man…he is a true friend.” I couldn’t agree more! Ron, you’re one in a million!!  Congrats on 7 years with Jandel…I value our friendship and wish you nothing but the best.”
– Val MacDonald, Accounting Manager

Ron, thank you for all that you do here at Jandel Homes. We look forward to many more years with you on our team!
