Jeff Glaze grew up in Westfield, and was on the crew clearing land for Hampden Village in 1974. He and Rod Maslauskas were actually the surveying crew that laid out the streets & lots in the early days of the Village. From 1979 until 1994 (when the Village was completed), Jeff was in charge of the construction crew, and has been involved in the management of the Village ever since.
Jeff is the son of John Glaze, who started Decorated Products and Hampden Village, two long-time Westfield businesses. Jeff followed his father’s footsteps into both business, and eventually took them over. John passed away in 2014, and Jeff assumed ownership of Hampden Village at that time.
You may know Jeff from his 30+ years with Westfield Rotary, the Boy Scouts, and Stanley Park. Jeff is a two time past president and Paul Harris Fellow in the Westfield Rotary, and is currently President of the Western Massachusetts Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and has been President of The Stanley Park of Westfield since 2008.
In 2007, Jeff started EpiCenter, a computer consulting business and in 2011 he started 1 Arch Self Storage with Justin, at their facility on Arch Road in Westfield.
He lives in Southampton with his wife, Linda.
Justin joined Hampden Village in January of 2014 when ownership changed hands. Balancing the business tasks, as well as working to continually improve the Hampden Village's infrastructure are Justin’s passions. Ensuring the highest standards of living in a safe, vibrant retirement community at a great value are Justin’s main objectives. Justin is a resident of Westfield where he lives with his wife and children.
