Message From Lisa after 25 Years at DGJ

By Tony on 11/22/2016

Where has the time gone? 25 years ago, at the age of 18 I started working for DGJ. I didn't know much about jewelry or anything at that point . I was scared but very eager to learn . I have had the pleasure of working for some of the finest people in our industry, Maria, Joe, Tony, and Suzanne D'Ortenzio. I am who I am today because of the guidance you have given me over the years. As far as all of my past and present coworkers, I love all of you and it has been an absolute blast working with you.

To all of our DGJ customers. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your lives precious moments from engagements, anniversaries, baptisms and birthdays. It was a pleasure to help you find that something "perfect". Thank you for the opportunity, it means the world to me .

DGJ isn't just about jewelry or a store. It's about family. A very fine woman 43 years ago made that clear. Treat everyone how you want to be treated in every aspect of life.

Thank you. I appreciate each and every one of you. Here's to the next 25!!!!

- Lisa
