Jerry started his driving career around 1984 and has been driving over the road since. He has accumulated over 3 million miles. He said when he first started driving it was for the adventure, seeing new parts of the country meeting new people.  Jerry has honed his driving skills during these years becoming a safe, professional driver. He takes pride in doing his job and doing it well on a daily basis.
Recently Jerry became a lease operator and is embracing the new challenges this brings.
