Jack Wahl: Heavy-Duty

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SANTA ROSA — Jack Wahl has always been in awe of heavy-duty vehicles, so when he saw an opportunity to operate them professionally, he jumped on board. “I’ve always had an interest in heavy equipment,” he affirms. “While working as a plumber, I had a chance to operate some trenching equipment and I really enjoyed it. Later, when I hired a paving company to install a driveway at my home, I again felt inspired watching the process and equipment used to perform the job. At that point, I decided to get a job in the paving industry, and I fell in love with it right away. From there, I figured the best thing to do was start my own company. Eight years later, here I am.”

Today, as owner of Jackson’s Paving & Equipment Rentals, Inc., Jack says his favorite part of his job (other than riding around on large vehicles) is interacting with and satisfying his customers. “I like meeting new people and seeing them happy with my work. I’m very motivated to provide each customer with total satisfaction, so it means a lot when they’re smiling at the end of the job.”

A resident of Santa Rosa, Jack spends most of his time outside of work with his wife, Amy, and their son, Jackson. “We enjoy activities like picnicking, fishing and playing board games,” he details. “Jackson plays basketball, baseball and soccer, so Amy and I like to support him and attend his games. When we get a chance, we also enjoy traveling to places like Hawaii and Alaska.”

In regard to his professional career, Jack says he gains perspective by putting himself in the customer’s shoes. “My main thing is making sure our customers are really happy with what we’ve provided. I’ve had professionals work on my home in the past and I know how frustrating it is when you don’t get the results you were hoping for. I never want my clients to feel that way, which is why my daily goal is to do the best job I possibly can for them.”
