EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: COMMITMENT LEADS TO REWARDING RESULTS
Jody started his career with Morrison in 2003 as a heavy equipment operator. His attention to safety and his work ethic was soon recognized and he later accepted a position as yard foreman. In 2012, he began assisting Deepwater Riser Services with the loading and offloading of risers and continued to gain interest in the drill riser business. “I would help with quotes and coordinate requests from the rigs. It’s exciting to win awards and be a part of the success of the company in that way.”
Building from his background, Jody’s career path eventually led him to the position he holds now. “I’m proud of every ounce of my growth from starting as a heavy equipment operator to becoming a general superintendent. Morrison has not only allowed me the ability to expand my career, but also provided me training that continues to better me as a general superintendent, husband and father,” says Jody. “I feel like family here. When Mr. Chet or any of his children are on site, you are greeted with a handshake and asked how you are doing. They truly care about the people who work here.”
When asked what advice he has for those considering a career in his field, Jody responds, “If you’re going to do it, commit to it and give it 100%, regardless of the decision of the trade or task.”
Jody is celebrating 17 years with Morrison and 7 years as a general superintendent for Deepwater Riser Services. He is married to his wife of 20 years, Marlene, and they have a beautiful 8 year old daughter, Lainey Clair. Jody is kind-hearted, dedicated and loyal and is the first to volunteer to represent Morrison at various events.
We wish Jody and all of our super Dad’s a very special and happy Father’s Day!
