Joseph Strauss

Director of Environmental Services

Hello, I’m Joseph Strauss. I am the contact person for any questions or solutions regarding laundry or housekeeping services for our facility. I have been with the company since January of 2014. I work closely with our Maintenance Team to ensure our building is functioning properly and safe for our residents.

Originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, my family moved to Dallas, Texas when I was 6 years old. I went to Texas A&M University on a football scholarship where I received an Associates Degree in Accounting in 1983. After college, I joined the United States Navy where I served for 10 years. Traveling oversees, I spent time in two wars; Desert Storm & the Persian Gulf. I received a Top-Secret Clearance during the war and was subsequently stationed in Washington D.C. with an honorable discharge in ’94. After my time in the military I moved to Seattle, WA where I started my own trucking company, Strauss Trucking. I purchased three trucks and traveled across country for 17 years.

I have a beautiful wife, Veronica whom I have been married to for 30 years. We have 4 wonderful children, Michelle, Jessica, Jermaine, and Mikiesha. Some of my hobbies include golfing, fishing, hiking, rebuilding cares, camping and spending quality time with my family and friends.
