Featured Employee | Joseph Jackson

This month Terral wanted to highlight two of our team members who have switched from our marine operations to shoreline support. Mickey O’Rear and Joseph Jackson.

Joseph Jackson started his inland marine career in May 2018 with Vidalia Dock and Storage. He started with no experience but had the work ethic and dedication to advance quickly and within 4 weeks he was decking by himself. After 6 months he had already worked his way up to Lead Man. In April of 2019, he decided to make a change and decided to switch over to Turn Services, LLC where he ran First Mate on a line boat for 2 and a half years. He decided to come back to Vidalia Dock and Storage in July of 2021. Which was then acquired by Terral RiverService in September 2021. He immediately made an impression and had the skill sets and determination needed to become Terral’s new Crew Coordinator at our Marine Headquarters in Lettsworth LA. Joseph was also chosen to enter our Steersman program this year which he will join and purse his license!
