jub-tmotm-0916David Garcia is our Team Member of the Month! David is the Field Manager at Shea Homes® at Jubilee® and joined us in 2014. He was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University in 2007 with an engineering degree. David started his career in heavy highway construction, then moved to the residential side four years ago.

David and his college girlfriend moved to Auburn, Washington, and were married last year. They’re having their first home built in Bonney Lake!

One of David’s favorite aspects of his job is the opportunity to interact each day with Members during this special time of their lives. “Every day is exciting because you get to meet new homeowners and watch them have the home of their dreams built,” he says. “I really like to work, and it doesn’t even feel like work here. You end up chatting and forget that this is a job.”

David also says he loves seeing the way Members engage with each other every day. “There is such a strong sense of community here, and it’s wonderful to see people find common interests,” he says. “It builds excitement and is really cool to see.”

A fun fact about David is that a love of Shea Homes runs in the family! His father has worked for Shea at various communities for over a decade and his brother just started as a Customer Service Representative. When David isn’t working, he’s spending time with his wife and family. They love canoeing, paddle boarding, and boating on Lake Tapps. David and his wife have even paddled their canoe loaded with golf clubs out to Tapps Island for a quick 18!

Be sure to stop by to meet David and say “hello” next time you’re in the community!
