John Paul Heston
Behind The Scenes
Teresa Devlin & Charles Heston
Like the natural gas industry in Florida Devtech is growing and we
are pleased to introduce our two new team members, Charles Heston &
Teresa Devlin. These names may sound familiar to most if not all of you,
and there is a good reason for this. Charles is the younger brother of
John Paul Heston (Central & South FL Sales: Devtech) and Teresa is the
daughter of Charles & Stephanie Devlin (President & VP of Devtech).
Charles Heston started with Devtech on January 2nd of this year.
Charles was born in Avon Park and graduated from Avon Park High School.
He went on to play two years of baseball at South Florida State College
and then continue his education at the University of Florida. Charles
graduated in 2009 with a degree in Sports Management. After graduating
from UF Charles spent some time in Herndon, Virginia working in property
management. In 2012 Charles married his high school sweetheart Jeanna
Haynes. Jeanna's job with Holder Construction then sent them half way
across the country to Dallas. Charles and Jeanna had their first child
Emmett while in Dallas and they just recently welcomed their second child
a sweet little girl (Haynes Michele) into this world on February 26th.
That brings us to right now and Charles's current role within Devtech.
Charles will be working side by side with Doug in the office helping out
with inside sales, shipping, and whatever else comes up on a day to day
basis. Please feel free to reach out to Charles any time for assistance
or just to welcome him into the Florida Natural Gas family.
Teresa Devlin started with Devtech in February of this year. Like Charles
Teresa was born in Avon Park and graduated from Avon Park High School.
She went on to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa and graduated
in 2017 with a degree in Communications. With the growth of Devtech and
the charm of a small town, Teresa made her way back to Avon Park after
graduating from USF. Teresa has been brought on as our Bookkeeping and
Admin Assistant and is currently learning as much as she can. Please
join us in welcoming another Devlin into the Florida Natural Gas family!
Devtech Birth Announcements!!
Haynes Michele Heston and Parker James Heston
Remember when I said that 2018 has been a busy year so far? Well that is definitely true for two of our employees at work and at home. John Paul & Charles Heston both welcomed a new baby into their family this year. Charles & Jeanna Heston welcomed Haynes Michele Heston into their family on February 26th. Haynes was 20" long and weighed in at 7lbs 12oz. She is a healthy little girl and her little brother Emmett along with the rest of us are excited to have her in the family. John Paul & Sara Heston welcomed Parker James Heston into their family on March 6th. Parker was 22" long and weighed in at a whopping 8lbs 12oz. He is a healthy little boy and was welcomed into this world by his siblings Sophia, Amelia, Olivia, and Preston (yes this makes 5!!!). Pictures are below and at least for John Paul this is the last birth announcement you will be receiving!!!
Devtech Upcoming Training Opportunities
Devtech feels that training and continuing education is key to the advancement of the natural gas industry. For this reason we have our Jim Estilette Training Center. So far this year we have held measurement & regulator schools, Flow Safe Relief Valve School, upcoming we have Basic Corrosion School followed shortly after by a one day seminar featuring Honeywell Instromet Ultrasonic meters. The Basic Corrosion School will be taught by none other than Buddy Hutson and is a great introduction into the art of protecting pipelines. The Honeywell Instromet Ultrasonic Seminar is being offered by Devtech & Honeywell and at no charge. We will have members of the Honeywell team at the Jim Estilette Training center presenting hardware & software functionality for the Q-Sonic Plus as well as the legacy Instromet ultrasonic meters. Please visit our training page for registration information. Also, we are always open to hosting classes that our customers feel would be beneficial to their success.
