Meet the Team
Jake Uerkwitz founded Wildcat Creek Tree Service, Inc. in the fall of 2016 with his wife, Sayde. A 2009 Purdue grad, Jake first accepted a supervisory position at Red Gold, Inc., where he gained experience in supervision where he led and collaborated with up to 110 employees in production capacities. After gaining skills at Wabash National Corporation and Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. he decided to pursue a business of his own. His leadership, business skills and love for the outdoors led him to pursue his tree service endeavor. As his business pursuit displays, Jake makes sure that his values are reflected in his daily life. In fact, he is guided by the philosophy of "But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded." 2 Chronicles 15:7. This ideology is what leads Jake to be seen day-to-day, on-site, working alongside his team. As a project supervisor, he ensures the job progresses accordingly and is in tip-top shape.

He is a true example of the kind of customer service we at Wildcat like to deliver to our clients. Outside of work Eric enjoys spending time with his family—including his dogs—being outdoors, fishing, camping, taking road trips, and going to church on Sunday.
