Our Story

With over four decades of faithful service to central and northern Wisconsin, we have established ourselves as the reputable name you can depend on. Established on January 1, 1976, The Pool People have always been locally- and family-owned – helping you build the incredible homes, relationships, health, and recreational enjoyment that you have always dreamed of.

 

Continuing the tradition, northeastern Wisconsin native Jeff Desing purchased The Pool People in 2017. The son of hardworking parents who have been married for over 50 years, Jeff understood the faithfulness and integrity that it takes to build something worthwhile. However, he also wanted the same stability and tight-knit community for his own family that he experienced growing up. After previously working as a CFO for successful private-sector home building, manufacturing, and health and wellness companies, Jeff returned to his Wisconsin roots with his wife Janelle. Looking to build a family and to give back to the community of people who had helped raise him so well, Jeff found his sweet-spot when The Pool People came on the market. Owning The Pool People was the perfect opportunity not only to use his established skills while owning his own business, it also allowed Jeff and Janelle to raise their children in the land they loved.
