JK's Glen Cooksey honored by the American Trucking Association

The American Trucking Association (ATA) named JK Moving’s Glen Cooksey as Super Van Operator of the year during its Moving and Storage Conference in New Orleans. Glen has been with JK Moving Services for more than two decades, providing great service in a safe manner.

“We are very proud of Glen. He embraces JK Moving’s values of care and respect, places a premium on happy customers, is a great driver, works hard, and gives back,” explained David Cox, President, JK Moving. “Glen has won many, many awards during his career, from Driver of the Year to Safest Driver, all recognizing his commitment to being the best in his field.”

The ATA MSC Super Van Operator contest honors exemplary drivers and owner-operators based on excellence in safety, reliability, and customer-oriented truck transportation in service to the nation’s household goods carriers. This contest was open to drivers that operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,001 pounds or more, drive 25,000 miles or more in a year, haul 30 shipments or more in a year, and drive for a moving and storage company.

Glen represents this level of excellence and exemplifies JK’s values of care and respect in his work and life. Demonstrating his commitment, he often remarks: “Care about what you are doing and everything else works itself out.”

Over the years, he has moved presidents, dignitaries, generals, celebrities, and many others while receiving accolades and maintaining a great driving record. In fact, JK has recognized Glen numerous times for his stellar driving record, including:

  • Driver of the Month 10+ times
  • Driver of the Year 4 times
  • Driver of the Year runner up 3 times
  • Safest Driver Award 2014
  • 2023 – Received 25 years accident-free award

ATA also noted citizenship as a factor in his win, including his efforts to help a fellow traveler who was in trouble. After witnessing a car catch fire, he helped the driver out and used a fire extinguisher to put the fire out. He also volunteered with Boy Scouts of Winchester, Virginia. One of Glen’s lifelong goals had been to send his son, Kevin, to college, and he was so proud when Kevin graduated from William & Mary.

In celebrating Glen Cooksey’s achievement as the ATA Super Van Operator of the Year, JK Moving extends our heartfelt congratulations. Glen’s dedication to safety, reliability, and customer satisfaction make him an outstanding representative of excellence within our team and the industry as a whole. We are proud to have Glen as part of our family, and we commend him for his unwavering commitment to care and respect in all aspects of his work and life.
