SAN ANTONIO - Roman’s parents were born and raised in Corpus Christi and moved to San Antonio a few months before he was born when his father went to work on the large USAA construction project.






        Growing up on the southeast side, Perez attended and graduated from Highlands High School in 1991.  Soon after high school, Perez went to work at the Alamodome with the International Union of Operating Engineers where he worked as an oiler on the many 4100 Manitowoc conventional cranes.  After the Alamodome project, he joined the Sheet Metal workers as a pre-apprentice, where he applied and was accepted as an apprentice.  There he earned his journeyman’s status after completing his four years of apprenticeship training.  “I started my sheet metal career at Todd-Ford Sheet Metal where I worked for 10 years.  I joined the M & M Metals Inc. team in 2002.”
         Perez is currently an estimator, project manager and safety manager for M & M Metals.  “I’m really proud to be leading the Ornamental Metals division at M & M and successfully estimating, managing and changing the safety culture at M & M.”
         Perez and his wife, Leticia, recently celebrated 13 years of marriage.  “I met my lovely wife at a Selena concert on March 21, 1992.  She works for the City of San Antonio.  We dated for 12 years before we got married.”  Together, the couple has a beautiful 10-year-old daughter who attends Coker Elementary and loves making slime, playing the violin, dancing and singing.
         If being an estimator, project manager, and safety director, husband and father of a talented 10-year-old is not enough, Perez also teaches welding, safety, and rigging at the local sheet metal apprenticeship school.
         You would think Perez has his hands full, but still he finds time for a little extracurricular activities of his own.  He enjoys saltwater fishing and hunting.  “I partake in saltwater fishing and hunting every chance I get.  Fishing and hunting is so relaxing and peaceful.”
         A man of many talents and interests, Perez’s interests don’t stop there. He also enjoys cooking,  barbecuing to be more specific.  “I am an award winning brisket and rib cooker.”  -cmw.
