Rodney worked with his Grandpa Clay & Dad Dennis learning the family business and is now the third generation owner of Wideman Pools. He has perfected his craft and expertise in this field with 25+ years of hands on experience. He received his Bachelor's degree in business from Missouri Baptist University, where he also earned his MBA in 2009. His wife, Krystle, is a local school teacher who participates in many church & community projects. They have three children, Clayton, Estelle, Kenna, and a tiny pup named Blue. Family time is the number one priority and much of it is spent in the backyard with the pool, firepit, and BBQ grill!
Kendra is also a part of the family! She has worked for the business since 2008... familiarizing herself in all aspects of fiberglass pools, installing, water chemistry, and more. Prior to accepting a full time position in 2018, she was a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force with a background in administrative work. Her realm of duties range from purchasing, ads/marketing, sales and everything in between... If you ever require assistance with anything pertaining to Wideman Pools, this is the gal to call!
Felicia attended Southeast Missouri State University and has been in the customer service side of the construction industry for a decade. When not helping Wideman Pools customers in the store, she spends most of her free time shuffling to her son's baseball practices, competing on her pickleball team with her husband, and participating in small-community based events.
Ron attended Linn Tech College where he received his certification as a Heavy Equipment Operator. He has also completed numerous trainings related to the pool industry, and in-depth workshops with major brands such as Hayward & Pentair. On the weekends you can find him enjoying time at the racetrack with his wife and grandkids, or lounging in his beautiful Wideman Pool!
Jon has been a team member since 2021. He received a Heavy Equipment Operator certificate from Linn Tech in 2004. He is happiest when there's free time to float the river, or do a hands-on project at home! Give him a wave, when you see him out driving our Wideman Pools trucks all over town!
Mike has been a team member since 2020. His dedication to the community is commendable, as he has been a full time firefighter and EMT in the Jefferson County area for 10+ years! He grew up swimming in a Wideman Pool at his parent's home, and we could not be happier to have him in our small business family!
Team in Training...
If you happen to drop by the store, there's a good chance you'll catch this young man trying to sell you a new pool or floatie! He's a dedicated, team player, who shows up for work every day after school. He enjoys Fortnite, Marvel Superheroes, & Halo!
Not yet as invested in working as her big brother, you can catch this gal poolside at home! She comes by the office to say "hi", grab a snack, and then she's on her way...
Who needs to work when you're this cute anyway?
He turns heads everywhere he goes... and our store has been no exception. We call him our company mascot because customers love to see him behind the register!
