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
Sandi, JEA Manager of Enterprise Resource Planning, is in charge of technical support for two of JEA’s most important software platforms: Oracle eBusiness Suite and GIS (Geographic Information System.) She is not one to shy away from big projects.
That’s why she said yes when her boss asked her in early 2003 to lead JEA’s Employee Giving Campaign, which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars for United Way of Northeast Florida. Sandi had not even worked at JEA for a full year yet, but agreed to step up to the plate.
“I am very blessed,” Sandi said, characteristically low-key. “I like to give back because of that.”
Sandi recently took her team of 11 applications analysts and specialists to Jacksonville’s Five Star Veterans Center, which helps displaced and homeless veterans suffering from PTSD. “We mopped and we swept and we cleaned closets,” she said. “It was a great team building activity.”
