Jerry Krause 75th anniversary retiree

As OPPD marks its 75th anniversary, we visited with some retirees and asked them to reflect on their years with the power company.

Here, retiree Jerry Krause shares highlights from his time with the utility. He worked for OPPD for 33 years, from 1970 to 2004. He retired as Division Manager – T&D Strategy & Planning, the second-largest division at the time.

“I worked with some really good people,” he said.

Hear more from Jerry in the following video by Goswen Visual Marketing.
