Jerry Wind Painting

Susan Wind
is Jerry’s favorite employee, his wife and best friend of 40 years. He doesn’t ask her to paint however, because she says she gets more paint on herself than on the wall. Susan manages the payroll and administrative tasks of our business with joy and love. She is appreciated and respected as the company mom by all our workers. Additionally, Susan is an exceptionally good Le Cordon Bleu-trained cook and baker.

Jerry Wind

Jerry Wind
graduated from the College of St. Thomas in 1974 and spent the next six years teaching English and Religion to 7th and 8th graders and coordinating large conferences. The seasonal nature of his employment led him to seek temporary work as a roofer’s helper, painter, and cleaner. His knack for painting led him to start his own business, Jerry Wind Quality Painting, in 1980. Jerry's business grew quickly, largely because of the strong relationships he built with customers and other painters. Jerry trains all of his employees to use the same care and attention to detail that helped him build his business from day one.

Ron Wolfe
grew up with painting in his blood. His father managed a Sherwin Williams store, and Ron began paperhanging and painting while he was in college. Ron and Jerry have been friends for years, having been members of the same ecumenical church group. Ron joined Jerry Wind Quality Painting in 1984, and eventually bought the business from Jerry in 1990, renaming it Minnesota Craftsman Painting. 20 years later, Ron and Jerry have reunited, and Ron is now Painting by Jerry Wind's main salesman and field manager. With their combined experience and strong friendship, Ron and Jerry now run a painting company which they believe is better than ever.

has lived in Minneapolis for 18 years with his wife Maria and their 3 children. He comes from a family of 5 brothers and 5 sisters, most of whom live in Mexico. Juan's whole family loves and plays soccer. His oldest son, Dillon, who is now 15, is a nationally recognized math whiz who visited the White House two years ago after winning a national contest! We were all impressed. Juan has been working very hard at getting his U.S. citizenship. He begins English classes in the fall to improve communication skills. Juan is very soft spoken but has a great sense of humor. Our other employees find him very enjoyable to work with. Juan's plaster repair and painting skills are very advanced for only having been with Painting by Jerry Wind for just 3 years. He is a reliable employee and craftsman.

Haakon Deach
is a fine example of our young seasonal painters. Haakon has gone through some classroom safety and policy training at Painting by Jerry Wind and a lot of on the job training from our experienced foremen. He is in his third summer with us now in 2018. He graduated from high school from Trinity School at River Ridge in Eagan, as many of our summer painters have. He goes to college at Loyola University in Maryland. He grew up in Burnsville and has one sister. Haakon likes painting because he is able to work with his hands and learn a great skill. He especially has learned a lot about great surface preparation. He loves working with all our crew members and also the fact that he gets to work on all different types of jobs for great customers all over the Twin Cities area. He recently lived in Norway for 9 months and was also able to visit Spain, Italy, Greece and Sweden. We hope to have Haakon back for many more summers to come.

Pat Doria
was born in the Philippines and grew up in California. He moved to Minnesota in 1990. He and his wife Rhonda have 2 grown Children and 8 grandchildren. Pat is small in stature but has a huge heart. He likes people and is always eager to please. He specializes in cooperation and enthusiasm and is a great team player. He will perform any task that he is asked to do with eagerness and a strong work ethic. Pat began painting in 2002 and has had a wide range of experiences within the trade. He even worked for Painting by Jerry Wind from 2005 to 2009 and became a beginning foreman at that time. Then hard times hit and we had to lay off 2 foreman based on seniority. Pat has since been doing plaster and sheetrock repair for apartment units and more recently was performing general labor for a dry wall company. We are so glad to have him back. We parted ways sadly in the past and can really use his skill and experience in residential painting. The tasks we perform are so wide and varied and he has experience in everything that we do. Welcome home Pat!
