We’re only as good as our team. Our teamwork is one of our company’s Core Values (ask any of us and we’ll tell you the rest of them). Every month, we’d like to introduce you to another member of our awesome team. So far you’ve met Dylan. This month, we’d like to introduce you to the newest member of our team: meet Jeffrey Schilpp (probably the only member of our team with a link to Albert Einstein).
Name and title: Jeffrey Schilpp, Network Consultant
Hometown and how did you end up in Bend? I was born in Gresham, Oregon, but grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington. I recently moved here to be with my Fiancée wife who I have known since Middle School.
How did you end up at Weston? I was searching for a IT company to work for in Bend as I was looking to move here. Then one day I find a job posting on Craigslist and applied. Now I am here working for Weston.
Favorite part about Weston? The coworkers and the work environment. It is a really fun place to work with caring family-orientated coworkers.
What do you do for fun in your spare time? Hiking and that is one reason why I love Bend.
If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? The 1981 NFC Championship Game when the 49ers beat Cowboys so I could witness The Catch. I’m a huge 49ers Fan! (I don’t want to hear it, Seattle fans).
What chore do you absolutely hate doing? Nothing worse than the dishes.
If you had to pick one word to describe yourself, what would it be? Dedicated.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet? Albert Einstein as he was a friend of my great grandfather Paul Arthur Schilpp.
What do you want to be when you grow up? I wanted to be professional basketball player. I bet my brother when I was younger $50 that I would become a basketball player. That didn’t quite work out for me.
If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose? I would choose to be teleport. I think it would be fun to be able to teleport in and out of anywhere. Not to mention extreme productivity.
If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why? I would like to be an Eagle. You could fly around almost anywhere with amazing vision to see so clear from high up.
What is the worst pet you have ever had? I grew up with a lot of different pets but I would say the two Prairie Dogs we had when I was growing up named Doc and Whitney. The smell alone was a lot to handle.
How do you get your caffeine? Through various pre workout drinks.
Where’s Waldo? Open a web browser on your computer and go to images.google.com search for Waldo. You can’t miss him.
If I opened your fridge, what would I see? Growler, Milk, Eggs, Cheese, lunchmeat, cottage cheese, yogurt, super food, pesto, and left over BBQ food.
