Jimmy Guzman – Dining Services Director
Jimmy “Confessor” Guzman began life on a farm in New Jersey picking blueberries and other produce. It was through those experiences that Jimmy realized his love of food, food preparation, and his future calling. He started his career at Marabelas, an Italian restaurant that cooked everything from scratch. With his passion for cuisine and an innate eagerness to succeed, Jimmy quickly ascended from cook, to Sous Chef, to Chef Manager and eventually began to open other Marabelas restaurants as the company expanded. Looking to grow professionally, Jimmy came to work at Rose Tree Place as Dining Services Director. Jimmy brings to Rose Tree Place a penchant for cooking from scratch, great management skills and a passion for our residents. To this end, he is developing the Cook Book Series, featuring delicious recipes Rose Tree residents have been cooking for decades. Many recipes have been passed down from generation to generation and some are centuries old! The residents grab their aprons and work side-by-side with Chef Jimmy to create dishes the entire community enjoys and raves about.
