As Truck Driver Appreciation Week 2021 winds down we want to give a sincere “thank you” to all our awesome drivers here at JMS. It can often be a thankless job with a lot of unfair stigmas but people tend to forget if you bought it a trucker brought it! 🚚🚛

We want to recognize one of our owner-operators, Dave, for going above and beyond at the receiver on one of his recent deliveries. Here is the message we received from the manager at the facility:

“Driver Dave needs an excellent review/kudos for calling ahead, being early and pitching in and helping unload the 60 boxes of product. We worked as a team, done in less than 40 minutes just the two of us. Please send this excellence report on to management/ownership and commend him for being great. It was a pleasure to work with him.”

Way to go, Dave! Proud to have him on the JMS team! 🚛

Driver Spotlight: Terry from Tyler, Texas.

Here is what Terry’s dispatcher, Danielle had to say when asked about him.

“Terry has been with JMS for 3 years, he is one of our most dependable and hardworking drivers. He consistently puts the customers needs first and has an amazingly positive attitude. You’ll know him when you see him, a smile as big as Texas is always on his face!”

Thankful to have drivers like Terry on the JMS team! 🚚

We were honored to be part of Jason Snitkey’s final ride on Monday evening. Jason served on the Walker Fire Department for many years and was one of our very best company drivers here at JMS. Before the pandemic Jason would stop into the office often, and you could usually hear him before you saw him. He had a great energy and was always fun to be around. We feel very lucky to have had Jason on the JMS team and our hearts hurt for his family that his time here was cut short. Rest easy and ride free Jason Snitkey 🚚💙🚒

It is with great sadness that we share Jason Snitkey passed away on Saturday, February 20th 2021. Jason was a company driver with JMS since 2009. He was an excellent driver and a tremendous representative for our company. Back in 2017 when we sent trailers of supplies down to Houston after Hurricane Harvey, Jason drove one of the trailers from Cedar Rapids to Houston. Most would relax in the truck while the trailer was being unloaded, but not Jason. He helped Riley and crew unload the trailer for 4+ hours in the Texas summer heat. He was a great guy and we’re heartbroken that he’s gone. Jason, you will be missed. RIP🚚🙏🚛

We have some sad news to share. James “Jim” Murphy, the ‘J’ in JMS, passed away on December 21st, 2020. Just 3 weeks later Charles “Mike” Stephen O’Deen, the ‘M’ in JMS, passed away on January 11th, 2021. These 2 men co-founded JMS along with current owner Scott (the ‘S’) in March of 1992. Jim and Mike were vital in JMS getting off the ground and having the ability to turn into what it is today. Thoughts and prayers go out to their families during this difficult time. Rest In Peace, gentlemen.
