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
As JEA’s Manager of Electric System Analysis, Matt spends his days deeply involved in the power quality and reliability of JEA’s electric grid. That means, if a JEA residential or commercial customer complains of frequent or extended outages, it is Matt and his team who investigates.
It is specialized engineering work that’s even a little nerdy – as Matt proudly jokes.
Nevertheless, when the chance comes to step away from his desk and volunteer out in the community, Matt warmly embraces it.
"I really enjoy doing HabiJax," said Matt. "It is just gratifying to work side by side with neighbors and colleagues and help provide for the community."
Matt has done it all – from laying sod to painting to installing siding. "The camaraderie is wonderful," he said. "It’s a really cool feeling to know we are not only constructing something physically, but also something that’s emotionally and mentally enhancing for the family that will live there."
