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.
Our Ambassadors engage with customers and the community throughout the year in various ways:
- At community events such as the annual Home & Patio Shows, the Southern Women’s Show, the Black Expo, World of Nations, Earth Day events and many church, school and smaller community events
- Through speaking invitations to community churches, schools, civic groups, home owners associations and others that want to hear about utility conservation, utility safety, environmental topics and other topics important or relative to the group or audience
- Through tours given of our energy generation and waste water facilities. Several of our energy and water plants are available for group tours of adults and middle-school and older youths
- As instructors of financial literacy information to adults and youth in partnership with area nonprofits such as United Way’s Real Sense and Junior Achievement. Our Ambassador instructors also teach JEA’s electric and water safety Power Pals program to area first and second graders through select elementary school partnerships

Spotlighting our JEA Ambassadors
Robert (a.k.a Bobbo) is JEA’s Mr. Congeniality. He’s a true extrovert and as such loves talking to customers and students anywhere – at trade shows like the Southern Women’s Show and the Black Expo or to students through Junior Achievement and JEA Power Pals.
"I just like talking to folks," said Robert, who is a member of JEA’s Black Belt team.
Before joining JEA’s Six Sigma Process Improvement group, Robert worked at the Northside Generating Station for almost 16 years. He started in Material Handling and rose through the ranks to become a manager of Operations. It was here that Robert grew a deep appreciation for JEA’s culture of safety, an attitude he tries to transfer to first graders when he teaches electric safety.
"I was at one school and a teacher said to me she wished I had come a few years earlier because she lost a student in a space heater fire," Robert said. "That was so powerful to me. We’re not just spinning our wheels when we go to schools as JEA Ambassadors. There’s actually a purpose to what we do."
