Spotlight on Jason
Congratulations to Jason Fitzpatrick, prefabrication lead at our MEP Manufacturing Facility, for earning the April 2020 Employee Spotlight!
Joe Snyder, MEP manufacturing facility manager, says, “Since moving into the prefabrication lead role in manufacturing Jason has grown to become a great leader and supporter for our team. He is someone that works hard, stays late, and makes sure the team has what they need to get work done. He is always several steps ahead of the team, but will still jump in if anything requires his attention. He has a great attitude and keeps a positive attitude regardless of the days stresses. He stays every day to help people who want additional training. He works hard to communicate with project managers and foreman to make sure they know where their projects are within manufacturing, and works hard to meet every deadline. He leads with integrity, meaning he leads the way he feels that leaders should lead. His team comes first, he realizes that when the team is successful his own success will follow. I’m proud to have him on our team and get to share our days together facing challenges, creating solutions, and streamlining production.”
What is your favorite Mark III core value (teamwork, innovation, integrity, work-hard-play-hard, transparency), and how does it play a role in your everyday role & responsibilities?
My favorite mark III core value would have to be split between teamwork and work hard, play hard. The reasoning for that is because I love being able to help out every trade as the shop works with all trades throughout mark III and work hard play hard due to the fact of rewarding myself on the weekends with relaxing projects at home from all the hard work I put in throughout the week days.
How do Mark III’s core values play into your position within the company?
The core values play into my everyday role and responsibilities just in the job title itself. In the position I am in as the shop lead if you don’t have all the core values mark III is established by then I would never be able to be in this role. Between staying connected with foreman about fab going out to site, and work going on in the shop all 5 core values must be upheld to a high standard to keep everyone happy.
How has Mark III helped you in your career development?
Mark III has helped me from coming to the company with some welding experience and plumbing in the navy for 4 years to understanding the commercial side of construction and how to build better and more effective. Before I started here, I would have though I could tackle any job put in front of me but after being with mark III for 3 years I know I can tackle any job put in front of me. Being versatile between working in the field and shop throughout the years has taught me a lot from prefabricating to installing which a lot of people don’t get to do and learn the ins and outs of effective ways to work. I enjoy seeing what the future of mark III is looking like and what my next big move at the company will be.
What is your proudest moment at Mark III?
My proudest moment would be when I became the plumbing lead and during Gallo I was supporting Madera building carriers and working on piping work while a lot of people were supporting the long shifts to get Gallo out the door. I am also proud of being able to see the shop move from our last 2 shops into the new MEP facility and how the company has built itself knowing that I am part of the reason Mark III is where it is at today.
