Jerry Romano founded Liquid Designz LLC in 2005. He didn't always feel that building water features would be his relentless passion. After receiving All American honors as one of the top punters in the nation, he decided to pursue his dream of punting in the NFL. After a number of invitations to camps, he realized that this particular dream would not come to fruition. He soon realized he could have the best of both worlds by developing Liquid Designz LLC during the week while punting footballs on Saturdays. Eighteen years and eight teams later, he was inducted into the Minor League Football Hall of Fame in 2015. Meanwhile, he has grown Liquid Designz LLC into one of the most recognized water feature companies operating in the northeastern United States.
