Joined the Aquire team in September of 2022 as the new Brand Ambassador. I come from a background of sales, marketing, and emergency response and hold an associate and bachelor’s degree earned in the UW system. You can find me out and about at events, trade shows, and supper clubs for a Friday fish fry!
I grew up in Appleton but moved out west to Colorado to get a taste of that Rocky Mountain air. Luckily, I came back to my senses and realized there’s no place like home and recently moved back with my wife. My passions are being involved with the community, volunteering, and meeting new people. When I’m not on the clock I enjoy the great outdoors spending many weekends with my Springer Spaniel Scout chasing critters through the woods, out on the boat, and working on projects around the house.
My name is John Mauer, and I am coming to Aquire after graduating from the University of Wisconsin- Oshkosh with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. I have spent countless hours throughout a decade’s worth of summers working in residential construction during high school and college. This is where I gained the skills, knowledge, and confidence in the industry that I lean on to best serve you.
In my personal time outside of work I enjoy spending my days outside as much as possible. Anything from hiking, camping, as well as hunting and fishing will typically be high on my list of leisure activities. In my additional free time I like to attend sporting events, visit family, and spend time with my significant other doing things we both love.
Born and raised in Texas, I relocated to Wisconsin in 2016. I’m married and have 7 children ranging from 6 to 23. I enjoy the northern woods of Wisconsin and secretly enjoy the snow even though I’m a Southern boy at heart.
After serving in the US Army for 7 years as a Special Operations Aviation Helicopter Mechanic I decided to get a degree in Construction Project Management. With an extensive background in building maintenance and construction I’m able to make all your building dreams come true!
I have recently found myself back in the Fox Valley after growing up in the Lake Country, WI area, having lived in Oshkosh briefly in college. I raised my now, almost 19-year-old son and began a nursing career in the Oconomowoc area before heading back this way this way in spring of 2022.
I am still in nursing as a nursing supervisor at a local Fox Valley hospital. Though I love nursing, I wanted to find something to give me a creative outlet. When the opportunity was presented to learn kitchen and bath design, it was difficult to pass up.
In my free time, which feels few and far between some days, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and our boys, catching up with family, attending sporting events (both professional and little league) and spending some solo time in the gym. We enjoy traveling to see all the world has to offer and adventuring to fun local destinations in our camper. I decided this past summer that learning how to garden could be fun. The jury is still out. We recently got a rescue puppy, Arlo, that keeps us on our toes.
I very much look forward to learning this new trade and going on the journey with you of designing the kitchen and/or bath of your dreams!
I've been a carpenter for nearly 20 years and feel lucky to say I enjoy what I do! I love bringing peoples' ideas to life. Growing up in a construction family my brothers, uncles, a grandpa, and even my mom was a carpenter!
When I'm not working, I have the honor and joy of being a father. I enjoy spending time with friends and family and watching my son, nieces, and nephews grow and develop.
I did not come to Aquire with years of carpentry experience, but carpentry is the career path I have always wanted. I’m hoping to learn and grow my skills here at Aquire.
Outside of work I enjoy hanging out with my friends, working on my car and truck, fishing, kayaking, and many other outdoor activities. Although my favorite hobby is drifting my car!
Dave was born and raised in Wauwatosa, WI and moved to Oshkosh 19 years ago. He has been happily married 23 years and has three children, two granddaughters, and a grandson on the way (YES!!). He also has a beautiful German Shepard that just turned a year old, and at 80 pounds, they definitely sleep well at night!
Dave came to Aquire with two years' experience in water and fire restoration. When it comes to water or fire damage, customers are #1 to him. He has hugged, cried, and prayed with some. Dave's job is about people and helping them get through some pretty rough times.
When he is not in your basement extracting water, packing up your belongings, or ripping out your walls, Dave enjoys spending time with family and friends, swimming, going on the trails with the ATV's, and jet skiing.
Dave holds IICRC certifications in Water Damage Restoration (WRT)

Hi, I’m Jessip. I’m 20 years old and ready to demo or clean anything. Trust me, I mean anything! In my free time I like working on my car and making it stand out. Have a great day and keep pushing forward!
I’m currently a college student at Michigan Tech studying Construction Management. I pride myself in working hard and doing everything to the best of my ability. In my free time I enjoy hunting, fishing, and hanging out with my friends. I love to learn and am always open to learning new things!
Caring and compassionate is how I would describe myself. I’m eager to learn and ready to tackle any issue. The Restoration business has helped me acquire new skills that I have wanted to learn for some time now.
