60 Seconds with Jerry Colarossi

Q. Before working at Watertech, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
A. Worked in an operating room as a surgical technician assisting in orthopedic and urological procedures. I was introduced to suppliers from the industry and ended up working in the medical sales industry, then hired on as a salesman beginning my career in sales way back when. The things I saw were very interesting and sometimes unusual to say the least. 
Q. How did you first learn about Watertech?
A. Learned about Watertech when I was a regional sales manager at Hydrite Chemical. 
Q. How long have you been with Watertech?
A. 1.5 years, and I have to say coming on board has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The Watertech Team is a wonderful group of hard working dedicated smart people that truly care about each individual around them.  
Q. How do you balance your career at Watertech and family?
A. By spending quality time with my wife and three sons. Working out with my wife at 5:00am almost every morning allows us to maintain a special bond together while at the same time giving each of us healthy bodies and minds throughout the day. Although my three sons have all graduated college and are now on their own, we dedicate time to be with them as much as possible. Lastly, I love to cook and having time at home to cook five-star meals, at least that’s what I consider them to be, for my wife. This gives us even more time alone to enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy our empty nest that we have worked so hard to maintain. 
Q. What are 3 words to describe Watertech?
A. Dedicated, Responsive, and Family. 
Q. What is your role at Watertech?
A. Sales Manager.  
Q. What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
A. I sometimes think I should have dedicated myself to our country and served in the military. 
Q. Favorite travel spot?
A. We love Hawaii! 
Q. If you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A. Bourbon – Good Bourbon! 
Q. If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
A. Lasagna 
Q. How do you define success?
A. Success can only be achieved by success itself.
