“When you get to laugh and do your job at the same time, it makes it all worthwhile!”

For 13 years, Jathan Escontrias has been with the City of Odessa. He serves as our Operations Manager for the Solid Waste Division.

He’s also following in his father’s footsteps. His father worked for the city for 7 years and was the one who got him interested in the job. 

“My dad taught me if you’re a good hand wherever you’re at, you will succeed!”

Jathan has been married for 11 years and has a 4 year old son. His favorite thing about Odessa is that it’s HOME. He was born and raised here.
