A veteran in the swimming pool industry, Vassallo has over twenty years experience in designing custom pools and spas.
Joe Jr’s career began as an apprentice designer working alongside his father. His natural architectural talents became profoundly evident and soon found him working in the engineering department learning the technical elements of design. That position proved to be invaluable, giving him an opportunity to review designs by some of the top designers in the country. Taking what he learned from that experience and blending it with his own natural talents, Joe Jr. has developed his own unique artistic style of design. He has the ability to take simple lines and curves and join them into an art form worthy of a painted canvas.
Joe Jr.’s architectural skills facilitate him to conceive complete habitats whereby the pool, landscape, decking, patio, play area and even dog runs are designed together to give the yard a total harmonious appearance.
Together with his father, the duo has built Paragon Pools into a nationally recognized custom in-ground commercial and residential pool builder with trend setting applications.
His designs and collaborations have earned him top design awards including the Las Vegas Parade of Homes Best Pool, Pool and Spa News Master of Design, Aqua Magazine AQUA Choice Award, the World's Best Pools and multiple APSP Awards of Excellence. He was named to the Top 40 Under 40 Top Young Professionals by InBusiness Magazine.
