Stephen patchen - Manager

Before joining the KLVJ team in May 2014, Stephen was an Airborne Cavalry Scout in the US Army. He learned lifelong skills and takes great pride in his service to our country. When he returned from service, he began attending school in Houston.

In his five years at KLVJ, Stephen has seen it all, and couldn't think of a better place to be. He makes sure that every customer leaves with a smile! Stephen has been a major factor in the improvement of KLVJ over the years. We are a small team, so he is tasked with everything including refueling aircraft, fuel quality testing, facilities maintenance, and customer service.

His favorite part of the job is that every day is different! There are always new faces, different aircraft, and new challenges to keep him going. He takes pride in helping others and providing top notch service.

In his spare time, Stephen likes to stay in and read books, play games, cook amazing meals, and hang out with his English Pointer Shade.
