Meet Will Mar, the Sales Floor Manager at Gary J. Long Jewelers, a man whose passion for jewelry and community shines brightly in Stockton, California. Born and raised in Stockton, Will's connection to his hometown runs deep. He shares his life with his beautiful wife, Elizabeth, of over 15 years, and their playful dachshund mix, Miles.
Will's educational journey took him through Lincoln High School and led to Delta College, where he earned an AA in criminal justice. But it was the sparkling world of jewelry that eventually caught his eye. Before joining Gary J. Long Jewelers, he honed his skills in customer service, running the Men's department at Campbell's Department Store in Lincoln Center for 10 years.
For the past 11 years, Will has been a fixture on the sales floor at Gary J. Long Jewelers. Each day, he embarks on an exciting new journey with people, helping customers find the perfect piece for themselves or a special gift for a loved one. His keen eye for design and genuine love for people has made him an indispensable part of the team.
What does Will love most about his job? It's the friendships he forms daily and the joy of finding the perfect piece to make someone happy. He particularly cherishes the moments when he can design or find the perfect engagement ring. Seeing a customer's face light up with satisfaction and excitement is a reward in itself.
But Will's passion doesn't stop at the store's doors. He and his wife are active members of Presentation Church and St. Anne's. He has served as the past president of Stockton Host Lions Club and is a member of the Elks Lodge. His community involvement reflects his love for Stockton and his commitment to giving back.
When he's not at work or serving his community, Will enjoys the simple pleasures of life. He loves to travel with his wife, walk their dog Miles, and go fishing. These moments away from work allow him to recharge and reflect on the blessings of life.
