Jerry Tackett – Director of Operations
What doesn’t Jerry do? With over 5 years at Sta-Dry Roofing, and a total of 24 years in Roofing Operations Management, Jerry wears many hats. He monitors and reports on all project budgets and costs as well as maintains project safety and quality audits. He also oversees all national operations, personnel, safety, quality, cost and scheduling.
Most clients interact with Jerry at some point, as he communicates with our customers, consultants and general contractors to monitor the progress of each project. We are constantly amazed at his ability to pull very large rabbits out of his magician hat when there’s a difficult problem to solve.
Jerry and his wife, Josie, are high school sweethearts and have two beautiful daughters – Ashlee, who currently lives in Connecticut, and Melissa, who serves in the U.S. Navy. Jerry and his wife enjoy family time and are believed to live separate identities as beach bums while enjoying the Salt Life on the Florida Panhandle whenever possible.
