Meet Our Team

Jay Wilson
Store Manager

Hey there, I’m Jay Wilson and I’m a 3-year member of the Batavia The Great Escape family. My personal specialty is leisure space design. I take pride in providing guidance and expert advice to help our customers find the high-quality leisure, water and entertainment products they’ve been dreaming of.

Being a part of The Great Escape team means that I have the best brands at the best prices available to me, so you can bet I’ll let you know which products are my favorites. If I wouldn’t buy it, I won’t sell it to you.

Here’s a fun fact: my wife and I met in the retail industry. I was a corporate trainer for a pool catalog company and she was one of my first students! Another fun fact: you never know who your next customer will be at The Great Escape. Really! I’ve even sold furniture to several celebrities. You’ll have to come in and ask me to find out just who they were- I’d love to tell you my favorite stories!

Jerry Verduzco
Store Manager

My name is Jerry Verduzco, and I’m the store manager of The Great Escape in Davenport. I’ve been with the company for 24 years. There’s a reason I’ve worked for The Great Escape for this long: besides knowing this business inside and out, it’s the family camaraderie that The Great Escape shows its employees.

I think that our customers can feel this closeness, too. I have made many friends that were once customers. People appreciate it when you remember them, and no one does it better than The Great Escape.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my three kids in our swimming pool, hitting the golf course, grilling out, socializing with friends and reading.

Welcome to The Great Escape in Davenport, where we strive to be the “fun home improvement” store! Why not give your backyard a facelift with a new swimming pool, spa, sauna, in-home bar, grill or patio furniture? The Great Escape is unique because not only do we strive to provide the best products at the lowest prices, we continually strive to be the best in the industry with new product lines and the latest technological advances in manufacturing and leisure innovation.

We’re located on Elmore Avenue off of 53rd, in between Sofa Mart and Lowe’s.
