Ambassador Spotlight of the Month (September 2021)

For Jacob Plicque P.E., giving back to his community has been in his DNA since long before he joined JEA 33 years ago, working his way through a number of engineering positions.

“I have a career in engineering because teachers, parents, and others nurtured and steered an inquisitive kid many years ago,” said Jacob, whose professional engineering licensing designation enables him to prepare, sign, seal and submit engineering plans and drawings to a public authority for approval. “We honor them by giving of ourselves to others and by finding fulfillment in doing so.”

As a serial volunteer, Jacob said he’s been serving the community his entire life, which helped him stay aligned with JEA commitment to its neighbors.

“Customers usually need a solution that cannot always be handled by a phone call,” he said. “The impact for me is, by searching for their answer, I learn something new through helping them. Giving them a solution is a job bonus for me.”

Jacob’s favorite part of being an Ambassador is the ongoing opportunities to work “with young people with inquiring minds.”

During a recent career day event at a school he recalls, “I was asked if a whale could be electrocuted, and that inquiry made me search out an answer,” he said. “While I didn’t find the answer to that specific question, it did lead me to learn about Thomas Edison’s experience electrocuting an elephant about 118 years ago. Regardless, it was a learning experience for both of us.”

It’s experiences like this that continue to fuel Jacob’s enthusiasm for JEA’s Ambassador Program. “It’s a commitment you’ll be glad you made,” he said.
