Wessler Welcomes Jeff Ballard

Wessler is proud to announce the addition of a new member to the Wessler team! Please join us in welcoming Jeff Ballard, P.E., to the company. 

Jeff will be working in our wastewater group as a Senior Project Manager, and has more than 30 years of experience in the industry. We asked him some questions so that we can all get to know him better.

What attracted you to the civil engineering industry?

I use to stop by the Markland Dam with my Dad, just up river from the Town of Vevay, IN, and watch barge traffic pass through the locks as a young boy while visiting my Grandmother in Vevay. Dams always fascinated me and Civil Engineering was the choice.

What are some things you do outside of your fulltime job?

Just finished a master-bath remodel that consumed my summer – otherwise Camp, fish and hike – not necessarily in that order and try to keep up with my ten year old son.

What are some of your favorite movies and TV shows? 

Animal House, Any of the Marx Brother’s movies, Family Man.

If you could have any type of vehicle, what would it be? Go into as much detail as you want. 

You said anything? Mine would have to be a P-51 Mustang with the Rolls-Royce engine – my favorite prop plane and WWII fighter.
