Jaime Wester – Owner
Jaime is originally from Wolcott, Connecticut where she graduated from Post University with a Bachelors of Science. In 2004 she couldn’t stand the cold winters any more and decided to move to sunny Florida. Once she arrived in Florida she lived in Orlando for a few years before moving to the Tampa area. Jaime started working for Champion in 2007 where she led the sales & marketing department. After learning about the sinkhole business she started to see a greater need for her skills. As a result she slowly started assuming other roles in the company. Once she started managing the operations of the company she re-organized the structure, leadership, and doubled the size of the workforce. Having seen the great strides Champion was making, Jaime’s dedication to the company, and her leadership skills, Michael decided to make her a partner. During Jaime’s time with Champion she has overseen hundreds of projects including compaction grouting, helical piers, steel underpins, wall tiebacks, chemical grouting, mud jacking, and concrete piers. Jaime is a keynote speaker at many sinkhole informational events, attends the Windstorm conferences, and is continuing her education by pursing her general contractor’s license. Jaime is active in the community by volunteering her time assisting with fund raising for the Veterans Memorial Park in Hillsborough County and donates to charities such as Paws, ASPCA, and Veterans Memorial Park.
