California JPIA Recognizes Milestone Anniversary for Maintenance Worker Chris Yanonis
Visitors to the Authority’s beautiful campus in La Palma can bear witness to the impact of Maintenance Worker Chris Yanonis, who celebrates 15 years as a California JPIA staff member.
“Chris’s long tenure with the Authority speaks for itself,” said Administrative Services Director Nikki Salas. “His diligent work ethic and dedication to his fellow staff members and our campus show every day, as guests are welcomed by a beautifully kept landscape and a fully functioning building .”
Since joining the California JPIA in 2007, Yanonis has performed an extensive list of onsite tasks, including building and grounds maintenance, facilities operations, and campus security. He also supports the planning and execution of events ranging from community service projects to Board of Directors meetings, all the while ensuring the Authority’s staff members have what they need to provide members with the best service and care.
“I am always amazed when I recall that the Authority’s campus is nearly 25 years old,” said Yanonis. “My goal every day is to make sure the building and landscape continue to look brand new for our staff and our members.”
The Authority’s iconic fountain has been rebuilt twice under Yanonis’s supervision, which he counts among his proudest accomplishments during his time with the California JPIA. He also has been recognized for his work on the Mariposa Courtyard, the back stairwell, and other landscape and building improvements.
“My job is made easy by the incredible California JPIA team members and how well the organization is run,” said Yanonis. “The team and staff are all very knowledgeable and always willing to help; everyone chips in and does their part to make my job easier.”
Congratulations, Chris, on your 15th anniversary!< Back to Full Issue Print Article
