Jeremy Van Ornum

Master Electrician
Read Biography

Jeremy is a Master Electrician. He was the first official hire at NEE and he has been with the company since September of 2013. Jeremy has been working in the industry since 2006, including experience with a commercial roofing company and a local disaster renovations company, where he eventually started his electrical apprenticeship.

His experience spans from large industrial and commercial jobs, to small residential service calls. Jeremy believes the key to being a good electrician starts with a phrase found at the beginning of the electrical code book, "Electrical equipment shall be installed in a neat and workman-like manner.”

Spending a little time to find a solution to the customer's needs in the least invasive way possible, without leaving a mess or an eyesore is the key to his work philosophy.

Jeremy is most often tasked with taking our new apprentices under his wing. And he likes to share with them, the story of when he was an apprentice. He had a foreman who, after Jeremy had done something not to the foreman’s standard, would ask, "Do you want to be known as a good electrician, or a great electrician?"
