Jeffrey Thomas is celebrating 3 years with the company this month. To commemorate that milestone, he is supporting the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care, support, and research. Grade Tech donated $1,000 to the organization in Jeff’s name as part of the company’s giving back program which supports the local community by celebrating employees’ work anniversaries (after the first 3 years of employment) by making annual donations to the employees’ charities of choice.

Jeff explained why he chose the Alzheimer’s Association as his charity of choice. “The association is doing important work and is making great strides,” he said. “My grandma died from the disease, and it was very difficult to watch her go through that. I hope that they can find a cure for the disease so that others don’t have to endure what she did.”

A part-time member of the Army National Guard, the Holden, Utah native joined the Grade Tech team after a two-year stint in the oil fields of Wyoming and made an immediate impression on his fellow co-workers and on the owners. The entire team welcomed Jeff’s positive, can-do attitude and exemplary work ethic.


“It was easy to see that Jeff would be a good fit for Grade Tech,” Rory said. “When he joined us three years ago, I thought that he would have a great future with us—and I still believe that today!”

Jeff draws on his military training at work and in his personal life. He believes in putting it all on the line out in the field—showing up on time, working hard, and staying focused on the goal—and in the gym. Despite having a physical, labor-intensive job, he hits the gym every night after work to push his body to new limits. When it’s time to relax, he heads to the lake with his wife, Destany, and their 2 dogs, Ace and Lily.

Please join us in congratulating Jeff on his 3-year anniversary with GradeTech and wishing him more success in the years to come!
