BILL MORRIS,CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD
BILL STARTED HIS CAREER AS A COMPANY DRIVER, THEN AN OWNER OPERATOR FOR SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE MAKING THE MOVE INSIDE THE BRICK AND MORTAR OF THE COMPANY. FROM DISPATCH AND SAFETY TO OPERATIONS AND OWNERSHIP, BILL HAS SERVED IN EVERY CAPACITY WITHIN A TRUCKING ORGANIZATION AND BRINGS
over 50 YEARS OF EXPERTISE TO JR KAYS – THOUGH HIS SPECIALTY IS STILL CRUNCHING NUMBERS AND ANALYZING PROFITABILITY REPORTS. ALTHOUGH BILL IS ENJOYING SOME EXTRA FREE TIME IN HIS WEEK WITH A MODIFIED SCHEDULE and a couple hotrod and muscle-car toys, NOT A DAY GOES BY THAT THE DIRECTION OF THE COMPANY IS NOT SUPPORTED AND DRIVEN BY HIS WISDOM AND GUIDANCE.

LISA FITZSIMMONSPRESIDENT
LISA BEGAN HER CAREER IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY IN 2010. PRIOR TO THAT, SHE HELD VARIOUS POSITIONS IN THE CORPORATE ARENA, WITH MUCH OF HER EXPERIENCE IN CONTROLLER AND STAFF ACCOUNTANT POSITIONS. BRINGING A DOLLARS AND 'SENSE,' PENNY-CHASING APPROACH, T
o THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY'S TIGHT PROFITABILITY MARGINS, HAS PROVEN TO BE AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR THE GROWTH AND SUCCESS OF JR KAYS. HAVING THE FORTUNE OF BEING IN A FAMILY BUSINESS MEANS HAVING THE influence OF EXPERTISE IN ALL AREAS AND LEVELS ALWAYS - MANY FAMILY  DINNERS ARE SpeNT DISCUSSING COMPANY PROFITABILTY AND DRIVER RETENTION/RECRUITMENT, AND WE WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY!

MIKE FITZSIMMONSVICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS
MIKE MADE THE LEAP FROM THE TECHNICAL INDUSTRY TO TRUCKING IN 2012 AND BROUGHT TO THE COMPANY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN TROUBLE SHOOTING, CONFLICT RESOLUTION, AND PROACTIVE INTIATIVES. MIKE HAS BEEN INVALUABLE IN SEVERAL FACETS IN THE BUSINESS - FROM DRIVER AND FLEET MANAGEMENT TO POLICY AND CORRECTIONAL STRATEGIES IN ACCORDANCE WITH STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS. HIS rapport WITH DRIVERS AND MAKING THEM TRULY FEEL AT HOME HAS MADE THE ENTRIE COMPANY (FROM DRIVERS AND CUSTOMERS TO ALL OUR BUSINESS PARTNERS) MORE FAMILY-ORIENTED. HIS EXPECTATIONS HAVE EARNED HIM GREAT RESPECT AMONG THE ENTIRE JR KAYS FAMILY, AND ACROSS THE INDUSTRY AS HE CONTRIBUTES IN LOCAL, STATE, AND FEDERAL AGENCIES TO MAKE SURE JR KAYS AND TRANSPORTATION HAVE A VOICE AT ALL LEVELS.

DAVID MORRIS,HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER
DAVID JOINED THE FAMILY BUSINESS IN OCTOBER 2017, RETURNING TO HIS HOMETOWN AREA AFTER 30 YEARS IN THE WARM SOUTH. ALTHOUGH DAVID'S BACKGROUND IS MOSTLY IN MANUFACTURING WITH A  LITTLE IN SHIPPING, HE IS QUICKLY LEARNING THAT FAMILY IS NOT JUST BLOOD HERE, WITH OUR SUPPORT AND HIS EAGERNESS TO LEARN, HE HAS FOUND SEVERAL AREAS TO SINK HIS TEETH INTO THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY. STARTING OFF WITH PAYROLL, BENEFITS, AND INVENTORY, DAVID HAS FOUND A NICHE THAT IS CHALLENGING BUT WELL WORTH THE HARD WORK, HE HAS SEEN THE DIFFERENCE he has already MADE IN EMPLOYEE BENEFITS AND MORALE, the drivers have found another family member they can trust and respect. HE HAS QUICKLY MOVED ON TO ADD HIS ENTHUSIASM AND EFFICIENCIES IN BOTH FLEET SERVICES AND DRIVER SAFETY, WHICH ENCOMPASSES WORK ORDERS, FLEET MANAGEMENT, A MORE EXTENSIVE BENEFIT PACKAGE, AND ELD implementation and COMPLIANCE. DAVID ALSO enjoys covering trucks and WORKing WITH DISPATCH WHEN THE GIRLS NEED A HAND, SO YOU MAY HEAR ANOTHER FRIENDLY VOICE WHEN YOU CALL IN.

JT’s WORK ETHICS ARE EXEMPLARY FOR HIS AGE AND HIS THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE IS EXTREMELY REFRESHING – HE NEVER MISSES AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW. AS SECOND MECHANIC, JR HAS FILLED A MUCH-NEEDED GAP WHILE TAKING ON SOME MAJOR RESPONSIBILITIES.
