Jaime Waltman Legare, Co-Owner

Jaime was born in LA, but has lived in Truckee since she was a baby. She graduated from Arizona State University with a double major in Marketing and Business Management and returned to Truckee after she was married, and pregnant with her first child, daughter Tatum. Jaime’s parents founded Waltman Construction when Jaime was a young child, and so the snow removal trade comes naturally to her. Growing up, Jaime cut chain, took studs off of tires and helped wherever needed.

Today, Jaime is remarried to Erik Jitloff, and together they are raising Jaime’s daughter Tatum and son Trevor, Erik’s sons Colby and Bennett, and their two-year-old son Cade. Erik is a local Firefighter. Jaime spends her free time with Erik and their kids, and as a family, they love to play on the trampoline, play baseball and basketball, and attend local school and youth events. Jaime’s favorite part of being an owner of Elements is the people she works with. She works very hard to create a positive and fun environment. Did we mention that she makes home-cooked meals for the crew every day we clear snow?!?!
