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.

  • United Way Real Sense and Junior Achievement: Employees offer financial literacy information to adults and youth.  
  • Power Pals: Our Ambassador instructors teach electric and water safety to first and second graders through select elementary school partnerships.

Community Ambassador of the Month

As a C & M Working Foreman, Mike has a theory about how to keep customers happy.

“I always carry those toy JEA hardhats in my truck and give them to kids in a neighborhood,” says Mike.  “I’ll tell the kids, ‘if you’re gonna watch us work, you have to wear a hardhat.’ They love it.”

Mike believes customers are a lot nicer to him if they see him being nice to their kids and giving them the hardhats. 

In truth, it’s not hard for this father of two who’s worked at JEA some 14 years to be nice to kids.  He loves putting on an Ambassador shirt and taking his crew – his work family -- to area elementary schools so children can see what linemen do.

“They like trying on our big rubber gloves,” Mike said. “But most of all, they love the trucks. They can’t go up in a bucket, but they sure like looking inside them.”
