The Stollwerck Story
I’m J.D., Owner/Operator of Stollwerck Plumbing and Sewer – a culmination of a lifelong passion.
Starting at the age of 16, I was already framing houses. I worked my way through high school and college, building things with my own hands.
After earning a BA in history from WWU, I realised that being a craftsman was my only job-related passion… and teaching in a classroom wasn’t. So I decided not to continue on with my teaching endorsement.
While I was pondering my next move, my best friend, who was running a plumbing/sewer company in Seattle, offered me a job until I figured out my next move. That is when I was introduced to commercial plumbing.
Quickly developing a fascination with new construction and designing/installing commercial waste & potable/non-potable water systems, I became a plumber.
My father was another great influence.
Until my late teens, I worked alongside my father in all facets of food, beverage, and retirement housing management. I was always watching and learning and working.
My father’s militaristic teaching of proper communication and manners was impressed upon me as a youth. Later, I also absorbed the customer service skills in business that he lived by. These factors have allowed me to successfully serve many happy clients over the years since starting Stollwerck Plumbing and Sewer.
I continue to have the same passion for my craft and for working with homeowners, property managers, and commercial clients in the greater Seattle/Everett area. I personally stand behind everything we do. We have over 75 years of combined professional experience. Call us today for any of your plumbing, sewer, and natural gas line needs.
