Meet Jesse Gaspar
Jesse Gaspar, a 22-year old resident of Gardena, participated in the Aero-Flex Pre-Apprenticeship in the Spring and Summer 2022 while attending El Camino College and majoring in Mechanical Engineering. During the program, he completed Blueprint for Workplace Success and technical skills training, a Paid Work Experience internship at OSI Optoelectronics in Hawthorne funded by the LA County Department of Economic Opportunity, and an internship at Northrop Grumman. Jesse was also enrolled in the On-the-Job training program provided by the SBWIB.
This hands-on work experience helped him broaden his horizons, gain expertise in a highly competitive industry and get hired by Northrop Grumman as an Aero-Flex apprentice sponsored by El Camino College.
