Happy Thanksgiving from Jackson Systems

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we asked our employees to reflect on the past year and share what they are thankful for. Here are some of their answers:

 

Kati L Clem, Marketing Coordinator 

 

“I am thankful for friends and family who love me, my pet cats: Lunetta and Starshine and a comfortable lifestyle. I’m thankful for my creativity and an education that has allowed me to contribute meaningfully and apply my skills to constantly changing purposes. I’m fortunate to have maintained independence through the past several very challenging years. Even though I am quiet natured I’m glad that my inner self is usually resilient enough to be peaceful despite the world’s negativity. I’m thankful that I have the motivation to be a constant learner so that life stays fresh and I can grow every day.”

 

Tom Jackson, CEO

 

“I am incredibly blessed.  I am most thankful for God, my family and my country.  And while I could expand on all three of these, I will just take a brief moment to mention our country.  Every day, I have to pause and remember that it is our freedom here in the United States that allows each of us to pursue our dreams and goals.  America allows us to be who we want to be.  I am thankful that our forefathers had wisdom and foresight, and I am thankful for all those who have, and are currently, defending her.

 

I am also thankful that my 13 year old yellow Labrador retriever “Terra” still wags her tail at me.  She has a hard time getting up and walking but still seems as happy as a puppy!”

 

Mike Lee, Account Manager

 

“I am thankful for our clients.  It is truly amazing to work with such great clients and assist them by providing our amazing HVAC controls products. I am thankful for the Jackson family; they have created an exceptional place to work and a great atmosphere.  I truly look forward to work every day!”

 

Kurt Wessling, Director of Sales

 

“As I ponder Thanksgiving’s approach, I am reminded of all that I am thankful for.  I am most thankful for what I call my “daily blessings.” Some of my daily blessings are: another day to try my best, my family and friends to love and be loved by, my 125 pound Mastiff’s tail wagging as I awake, my cat’s meow, a great place to work, great people to work with, wonderful clients to help serve, sports to watch, books to read, workouts to complete – and of course, the good health to enjoy them all!   Daily blessings come in many forms – sometimes a stranger’s smile or your own to make them pause, 12 oz. cold bottles work some days but so does a child’s laughter… Turkey dinners or a favorite fast food snack…

 

Whatever your daily blessings are- remember this –  there is always someone in this world who has it worse and would gladly trade places with you.  Be thankful for what you have and for what you are working towards – including the journey!  Remember to smile – it’s contagious!”
