He is CEO of L.J. Star Incorporated, a supplier of observation equipment — sight glasses, level gage instruments, flow indicators, light ports, camera systems and other sophisticated accessories — used to measure and control the critical flow of liquids, gases and powders used in heavy commercial manufacturing processes.

But that’s only part of it. Beyond its business mission, L.J. Star is, to borrow a popular phrase, the stuff that dreams are made of. The company was incorporated in 1991, but its concept took place a decade earlier in the mind of a father looking for a place in his son’s future.
