Meet Jorge

Jorge Melendez is a valuable member of LBT’s Custodial team, beginning his career at LBT in the Maintenance and Infrastructure department 15 years ago after working as a Custodial Supervisor for Los Angeles International Airport. Having grown up in the Long Beach area and raising a family, Jorge was happy to find work closer to home allowing him to spend more time with his family.

One of Jorge’s favorite things about working at LBT is his team. “It’s a blessing to work alongside so many wonderful people. It really makes a difference when you can come into work and enjoy your time knowing you are part of a team that works well together,” Jorge shared.

On his time off, Jorge is an avid fitness enthusiast. A few years ago, he became a certified fitness instructor and loves helping others reach their fitness goals. Jorge also enjoys spending time with his family and is celebrating 27 years of marriage with his wife, who shares his passion for fitness. He is a father to three sons and sees so much value in prioritizing his family and doing things together as a unit.

Custodians play an instrumental role at LBT, especially during the pandemic, helping to ensure spaces remain clean and sanitized. If Jorge’s job sounds interesting to you, make sure to regularly check our careers page for open positions with LBT.
