Congratulations to Matt Silk Jr., who was chosen by the propane industry as one of the 30 Gassers Under 30 this year — a tribute to his many talents.
Matt started as an oil delivery driver with us after graduating from the University of Connecticut five years ago. He now works on the propane side, as both a driver and a technician.
“I have always enjoyed working with my hands,” says Matt. “I love learning how things work and being in the field doing installations. This is better than working in an office.”
Matt is the grandson of Bill and Joan Silk, who were the owners of Silk Oil. His father, Matt Silk Sr., is a seasonal driver with Jennings. Matt Jr. was raised in Sherman, Connecticut, where he currently lives. Away from work, he enjoys running and hiking with his dog, Bella.
