Jose Mejil

Building Superintendent

At age 18, Jose made the journey from Puerto Rico to live in Newark to make labels in a clothing factory while he got settled in his new home. He met his wife in Newark, started a family, and accepted a position as a superintendent in a new apartment building. Though he does have the occasional tenant knocking on his door at 3am, he has built a great trust with the residents and is able to balance work with being a great father.
