JEA Ambassadors: Engaging and Educating Our Community

JEA employee Ambassadors spend thousands of hours each year in the community educating our customers about conservation, safety and the various products and services JEA offers to customers; including solutions to help track their usage, pay their bill and how best to communicate with JEA.

Ambassador Spotlight of the Month

Community Ambassador of the Month

Michael Durrett began his career with JEA more than 11 years ago. He currently works as the Manager of Buckman Street Treatment Plant and Biosolids.

Shortly after becoming a manager three years ago, a colleague suggested that Michael would be a great addition to the Ambassador program. His involvement is a decision he hasn’t regretted.  

Of all of the events he has been a part of, Power Pals stands out as one of the most enjoyable. He also likes interacting with the students and sharing information about JEA at career fairs. “Most of the students don’t realize the wide variety of job opportunities offered by JEA,” Michael says.

He has had many meaningful interactions with people in the community, but one in particular involved a student hand-crafting a thank you card for him, expressing their appreciation for his work with Power Pals. “The Ambassador program really is a great opportunity to interact with the community in a positive way,” he says. “The kids really look forward to us coming back, and so do we.”
