Jerry Handley

Work, as well as life, is better when great team members surround us. Thankfully, for those in the metal department at Western Window Systems, one of those great team members is Jerry Handley.

“Whenever Jerry is needed, he’s there for you,” says coworker Antwuon Sanders. “I’ve seen Jerry go above and beyond his core job more than once. He’s constantly throwing new ideas our way – and he’s always looking for ways to be more efficient.”

Handley started at Western Window Systems in May of 2013. Since then, he’s quickly become known as someone who puts the team ahead of his own individual situation.

“He never stops trying to improve,” says Alejandro Estrada, another coworker of Handley’s. “He’s willing to help out no matter what the task or how far behind he is.”

Handley also gets accolades from his team for being on time, putting his all into every task, and maintaining a cheerful, positive attitude.

“Jerry is a standup guy,” says coworker Corey Holland. “To do the job he does and take the pressure he takes from the shop, he still gets the job done with a smile on his face. Working with Jerry makes this job a lot easier. He knows his metal and what we have outside in stock without even looking.”

Congratulations to Jerry Handley, Western Window Systems’ shop employee of the month for November.
