Tom McNelis is the President of Signature Pools & Spas, Inc. As a working owner and master craftsman Tom has personally installed hundreds of fiberglass pools and is often called upon by other companies to consult on certain projects. Tom has also been the recipient of the highly regarded Master of Design award for a job he designed with a vanishing edge fiberglass pool, spillover spa, pergola with 8′ long rain descent waterfall, outdoor fireplace, and a natural stone patio. Tom is present on all of our jobs and oversees the day to day construction projects that are happening. Tom and and his wife Hazel live in Yorkville, IL with their sons TJ and Haydn where they enjoy time together in their own pool – an Elegance 33 model from Leisure Pools. After previously owning a fiberglass pool from another manufacturer the McNelis family loves having a Leisure Pool in their backyard.
Away from the pool business Tom and Hazel are actively involved in supporting their two sons sporting events. Their oldest son TJ attended Aurora Christian High School where he excelled on the basketball team. TJ currently is in flight school with the goal to become a helicopter pilot. Haydn, the younger son, is still attending Aurora Christian High School where he excels as a basketball and football player. The McNelis family is also actively involved at Cross Lutheran Church where Tom is part of the Missions team and typically spends 1 – 3 weeks a year on missions trips to Peru. In Peru, Tom uses his building skills to help with building projects as well as working with an orphanage. One of Tom’s favorite hobbies is riding his Harley Davidson Motorcycle through the backcounty of Illinois.
