The son of an engineer, Wesa attended local chapter functions with his Dad before graduation, and since 1980 has served on the Lakehead Chapter executive. Wesa is proud Lakehead Chapter hosted the 2017 PEO AGM in Thunder Bay. Having previously served as a Northern Region councillor from 1992 to 1996, and 2011 to 2015, Wesa also contributed to numerous PEO committees—Executive, Finance, Regional Councillors, OSPE Joint Relations, and CLC planning—and various task forces. He has served on the Discipline Committee since 1992. Wesa was inducted into the Order of Honour in 2008. Wesa’s engineering career included service in the forestry industry, three consulting firms, and Hydro One electrical utility. His technical expertise includes HVAC, power transmission, material handling, diesel generation, and mechanical building services. Retirement in 2012 affords more time for travel, and other local volunteer activities (minor hockey, symphony orchestra, church treasurer). Wesa recently traced his ancestral roots to 1665 in the Rheinland-Pfalz, DE, through historical research of the region, and is now turning travel into journeys of discovery. Other interests include classical music, musical theatre, computing, and learning Deutsch for his new grandson. Although retired from squash and tennis, he can still hike and bicycle. Married in 1975, Wesa and wife Arlien raised two sons and a daughter.
