JEA employees are our strongest connection to the communities we service and are committed to making a difference through volunteerism.
Our employees volunteer throughout the year with various organizations to help improve the quality of life for our customers. JEA employees volunteer thousands of hours to help build homes, clean-up along the river, serve meals to those in need, even read stories to children.
Spotlighting Our Employee Volunteers
For Donald, a JEA GIS CAD Technician III, volunteering in the community is a homerun with the bases loaded. Why the baseball metaphor? Because Donald was a talented baseball player who won two state titles in high school and attended Jacksonville University on a baseball scholarship.
Nowadays he plays competitive softball – 3rd base for Team JEA in the YMCA First Coast Games. He’s also an avid outdoorsman.
Donald also enjoys volunteering in the community. He’s helped HabiJax build homes and worked at Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary, where he recently helped build a pen for a blind fox.
As Donald put it, “It makes me feel good giving back to the community” -- about as good, perhaps, as hitting that homerun with the bases loaded.
