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.

Community Ambassador of the Month

Edgar Gutierrez, Manager, Customer Solutions, has been with JEA for over eight years, and began participating in the Ambassador Program about seven years ago. His primary interest for being a JEA Ambassador, was the opportunity to get out into the public and interact with members of the community. “JEA has a great reputation in this city. I wanted to be able to talk to people about how they see the company and answer any questions they have,” he said.

Edgar’s favorite ambassador activities involve going into elementary and vocational schools and speaking with those who may be interested in being an engineer, like him. One particular experience that stands out in his mind as particularly gratifying, was when a student from the Episcopal School asked him for assistance with a science fair. With the help of two other engineers, they assisted the student whose project went on successfully beyond the region to a state competition.

“Sharing with others about energy sustainability and providing exposure to different concepts, like solar farms, is very satisfying,” Edgar says. It’s the variety of opportunities as a JEA Ambassador that keeps him enthusiastic about the program, and he encourages others to get involved too.
