2009 Recipient of the John F. D. Peterson Award

More on Jan Polewaczyk

Jan Polewaczyk, formerly of Foster Wheeler Martinez, currently with Contra Costa Water District, the 2009 recipient of the Frame 6 Users Group “John F. D. Peterson Award” recognizing extraordinary contributions to the Frame 6 Users Group and the combustion turbine industry.

Jan was born in Chicago and graduated in 1978 from California Maritime Academy with a BS in Marine Engineering. He was with Chevron Refinery from 1978-80 serving as a Design Engineer. From 1980-82 he was Assistant Engineer at Chevron Shipping. From 1982-86 he was an Assistant Engineer with MEBA/Marine Engineers Union.

He joined Foster Wheeler Martinez in 1986, holding ever increasingly responsible positions until 2006, when he retired as Plant Manager. He currently is employed as the Maintenance Superintendent for the Contra Costa (California) Water District.

Jan describes his family life as being single but with a “strong commitment to a beautiful woman” and having two sons (ages 26 and 14) and one daughter (age 16). His interests include Nascar racing (X-oval track/road course racer) and, most importantly, family “stuff”. He is a self-described, “committed gear head, engine builder, fabricator of Beasts” all while striving to maintain ”a large carbon foot print.”

Jan’s philosophies are family first, Pirate rules second. Freedom and HP are good — taxes and politicians are bad.
