JK Team

JK names 2022 Core Value Award winners

At JK, we embody our core values every day, in every interaction and every relationship. Our values are at the center of everything we do, and each year we recognize employees who truly go above and beyond with a Core Value Award. Employees nominated their colleagues for a value (or all of them!) and winners were recognized and honored.

Below are JK’s 2022 honorees. Congratulations to all!

It’s my job

Tabytha Thompson

Tabytha Thompson, HR Supervisor – Shared Services

HR can encompass quite a multitude of different inquiries and asks, and some of these requests don’t have one specific answer. Tabytha has always made it a point to get the answers necessary whether it is directly related to HR or something else. She takes ownership of what she does, follows through on any task given, and is always seen lending a helping hand to fellow employees. Tabytha takes “It’s My Job” to a new level by the many hats she wears throughout the day, and always with a smile!
