Jared Wallace Celebrates 20 Years With the Sprague

Wallace will be the 36th Sprague employee to be added to Sprague's Wall of Honor

When Jared Wallace started as a service specialist with Sprague Pest Solutions, he didn’t think he would one day be managing a regional team of service specialists, operations managers and sales representatives. Yet 20 years later, Wallace is doing just that.

Wallace, Sprague’s regional manager for Yakima, Pasco, Spokane, Boise, Salt Lake City, and Denver, will be the 36th Sprague employee to have their photo added to the wall of honor at the company’s corporate headquarters in Tacoma. The first employee to make it on the wall, which was recently expanded to a second wall, was Art Bader, who joined Sprague in 1971.

“Jared brings a unique skillset and perspective to his job that benefit his co-workers, clients and the communities we serve,” said Ross Treleven, president of Sprague. “The knowledge and experience gained from his time as a service specialist and branch manager allow him to be highly effective in his role as a regional manager. We congratulate him on his 20 years with Sprague and look forward to his continued contributions.”

A member of Sprague’s Senior Management Team, Wallace started with Sprague in May 2002 as a service specialist and was promoted to branch manager in Kennewick in 2005. In 2013, he was promoted to district manager and to his current position in 2015.

Wallace attended Yakima Valley Community College and worked as a carpenter before making a career change and working with two other pest management companies before joining Sprague.

“Sprague’s culture is centered in providing the flexibility and freedom to pursue your career and personal goals,” said Wallace. “This has meant a great deal to me and my family and I’m grateful for the opportunity to work for a company that is 100 percent committed to supporting both its employees and their families.”

An avid outdoorsman, Wallace and his wife have two children. In addition to fishing and hunting, Wallace enjoys coaching youth sports, something he has done for more than 20 years.

In 2021, Wallace’s daughter, Maddie, was the recipient of Sprague Pest Solutions Scholarship Fund. The fund assists the children of Sprague employees in their pursuits of traditional postsecondary education, technical or vocational training. Maddie is currently enrolled at Yakima Valley Community College.
