Faces Of Northeast: Mitch Trumpp

Mitch Trumpp moved to Northeast in 2012. At the time, Trumpp owned his own business and was renting a house with two refugees from Iraq in the Sheffield Neighborhood.

“My faith in Jesus led me to Northeast, which is such a good place to serve and build relationships with those from all over the world,” Trumpp said.

Mitch married his wife, Kristen, and they moved to the Indian Mound neighborhood.

They started a family and quickly outgrew their home, so they recently purchased a shirtwaist in the Lykins neighborhood.

Mitch and Kristen Trumpp have two biological children, ages 3 and 1, and they also have a foster daughter, age 14.

“It’s fun to have such large age gap with our kids,” Mitch said, “It keeps us on our toes!”

Mitch says his family loves the coffee at Eleos Coffee House, the piñatas at Elvira’s, the tacos at San Antonio Market, and the cookies at Boulevard Bakery.

“But Kristen and I love the people in Northeast above all,” he said. “It’s so easy to meet people here. I grew up where everyone hid in their houses behind 6-foot fences.  In Northeast, most people seem to wear everything on their sleeve, which is healthy and refreshing; it’s the way people should be.”

Currently, Mitch works as a project manager for a large architectural fabrication company in the Fairfax District, where they build custom furnishings for hotels, restaurants, stadiums and universities all over the United States.

“From a young age, I have always loved working with my hands and building cool, functional objects.”

Mitch has a heart to use his career to help create jobs, train others, and give second chances to those who need it.

“To provide a job is to provide dignity for a person and to help them feed their family,” Mitch said, “Every person should have the opportunity to do that.”
