J.C. has inspired many through his drive and determination

“I worked with J.C. for three years and out of the 5,000 people I have worked with in my professional career, J.C. is in the top ten. Not only me, but everyone in the office recognizes him as a next level thinker, who is always thinking of the next step. I would regularly find myself in his cubical discussion a wide variety of issues to get his perspective and advice on. Probably the greatest value he adds as a leader is he knows how to roll up his sleeves and show how the work is suppose to get done. He never shies away from work, and always has clear understanding of what the bigger picture requirements are.”

“I worked with J.C. for a couple of years and everyday he was focused, ready to work. He brought a level of enthusiasm and expertise to his position which directly translated into excellent results for our team and our leader. I would not hesitate to work with, hire or work for J.C. in the future if our paths cross again.”

Patrick SmithUSAF Officer

“J.C. is one of the hardest working individuals I know... period. As Deputy Group Commander of the 3d ASOG, I was responsible for running the Group staff and coordinating multiple efforts across a Group of 1000 Airmen. J.C. was my go to guy when I needed something done. Among multiple other responsibilities, I assigned him the daunting task of standing up a new inspection program affecting the entire Group, and ensuring our Squadron Commanders and program managers were properly trained and in compliance. He dug in and accomplished this monumental task with flying colors, earning recognition from both the Group and Wing Commanders. I was always particularly impressed with J.C's dedication to furthering his education. There was never a time that he was not hard at work on an advanced degree or certification. He has my highest endorsement”
