Jeff Garcia, GP&L

GIS Jack of All Trades

Jeff Garcia didn’t want to go to jail. 

That’s why this now-veteran GIS and ArcFM user went back to school to add an applied-science degree in geospatial technology to his criminal justice degree. Jeff has been solving technology needs at Garland Power & Light (GP&L) ever since. 

“I started from the bottom as a temp,” Jeff said. “Now I’m at the top, but it’s scary up here.” 

If it sounds like Jeff is joking, it’s because he is. This AIPS Manager at GP&L is a jack of all trades, knowledgable at solving field technology requests and bringing the most current technology solutions to GP&L.  

Hear Jeff speak with SSP’s Corey Blakeborough on asset management and SSP’s Transformer Manager at SSP iLLUMINATE this year. 

When Jeff isn’t working, you can find the former Junior College National Soccer Champ hopefully putting a soccer ball in front of his one-year-old, Noah, and continuing to impress his wife with his incredible Jeopardy! skills.  

Grab a craft beer with Jeff at SSP iLLUMINATE. Bonus points if you can tell him your favorite Dogfish Head bottle (Jeff’s is Dogfish Head 120!).
