Awesome Associates – Jeremy Doege, Civil Market Leader (San Antonio, TX)
Hi, Jeremy! Tell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school:
I am from the small town of La Vernia, Texas and grew up living the country life and working on the farm. I went to Texas A&M University in College Station to pursue my engineering degree and I am a proud member of the Class of 2000 (Whoop!!).
What drew you to this profession?
I enjoy solving problems and helping people, and we deal with those two things on a daily basis. I also like making the world a safer and better place and the engineering profession definitely plays a role in making that possible.
What types of projects have you worked on?
My experience is very broad but primarily focused on public infrastructure. I’ve led significant utility, roadway, pedestrian mobility projects, and also served in a program management role for the City of San Antonio as a consultant. I enjoy infrastructure projects primarily, but have had the opportunity to lead large scale industrial/commercial projects along with master planning projects and land development projects. When you’ve been around a long time and have a general infrastructure background, you get the chance to work on a diverse set of projects, and for that, I am very fortunate.
What’s your get-pumped song?
Thunderstruck by AC/DC.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I really enjoy playing golf and watching sports.
What does your ideal vacation look like?
A week-long trip to somewhere with cool temperatures and amazing golf courses!!!! (I am open to suggestions on locations).
What was your first job?
Working on the farm….pretty certain my dad had me driving trucks and tractors by the age of 9 or 10.
When I’m creatively stuck, I…
Ask my team for suggestions….they always have great ideas.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
Sports in general, but mostly golf. Playing as a team and competition in general really pushes me.
Any interesting facts about yourself that you’d like to share?
I’m scared of heights. I don’t like horror movies. I’ve never ridden a motorcycle. I’m awful at naming music artists when songs come on the radio, and my senior year of high school I made a shot from half-court at the buzzer to win a basketball game… that is a feeling I will never forget.
Who or what inspires you?
My mom and dad and the way they raised me. They inspired me by showing me that hard work is important, how to be a leader, and most importantly the right way to treat people.
Everyone at WGI has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?
I left another consulting firm after 15 years to help start a public works practice at Big Red Dog in the San Antonio office. The opportunity came at the right time in my career and I am thankful to now be part of a great company in WGI. I enjoy the great people and especially my team and the rest of the San Antonio office crew. We have a bright future ahead of us!
