Houston and Southeast Texas Apartment Associations
Outstanding Service Award: Southeast Texas Apartment Association
A native Houstonian, Michelle attended St. Agnes and Texas A&M University prior to joining the Century team. Her first job, however, was quite different than her role as VP of Multi-Housing Sales; she washed the neighborhood families’ dogs!
In her spare time, Michelle enjoys volunteering for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
If stranded on a deserted island, Michelle’s top three items she would like to have are good books, good wine, and good friends.
Former member of the Nordyne Distributor Advisory Council
Current member Blue Hawk Vision Quest Committee.
A graduate of Sam Houston State University, Steve got his start in the HVAC industry with Century as a Counter Sales Associate.
When asked what part of an HVAC system he would be, Steve chose refrigerant because it flows around, changing form and the environment.
In his spare time, Steve enjoys playing golf. Not the typical survivalist, Steve chose three pinnacle items to ensure his safety if he is ever deserted on an island: a motor boat, a map, enough gas to get to civilization.
Jess started out in HVAC/R wholesale industry with his very first job, working in the warehouse and as a floor sweeper. He recalls, “I guess 1969 was a good summer. I went from an allowance of $10 per week for chores to almost $10 per day! I was getting rich!”
Although he does not have any hidden talents he would be willing to admit, Jess did tell us that if his job were a part of an HVAC system, he would be a circuit board. He claims, “No one would still know what I really did. And, I could still be just as mysterious and confusing to almost everyone.”
When asked what three items he would bring if he were stranded on a deserted island, Jess rebuffed: “a good sturdy knife, a satellite phone, and a fully stocked cruise ship - a really big one!"
