With Halloween right around the corner (one of our FAVORITE holidays!) we have been looking back at a summer well spent at JCI! Our Crew was busy! Starting with our BIG client party in May JCI kicked off summer with a bang. While we are now beginning to feel nice and settled in, it was so exciting to show off all our hard work to our favorite clients!
We have grown our family in more ways than one this summer. As we hire new employees and our crew expands, we welcome each new employee by displaying a custom piece of art created by them in our conference room. Our conference room is one of a kind, and it is very fun to try to guess which piece belongs to who! Additionally, JCI is so proud to welcome a new face to the world, Kim’s second daughter Chandler Marie, Born on August 6th. We love to through a party, as you may have realized, and so jumped at the chance to celebrate Kim, a great friend and a beautiful mother. Spoiler alert, we have recently received word from another Crew Member that there are more new faces to be expected in 2016 🙂 Keep watching!
The Crew has lent our time to many worthy causes this summer. Summer means Summer Camp, and we LOVE to support Camp Esperanza each year. We had a great time at the NTCAR Gold tournament as well – Andy Jones loves a good cigar 😉 We also spent some good time letting loose at the Texas State Fair, an annual tradition. Nothing beats JCI at the Texas state Fair, an event not to be missed. The food and beer flows as we enjoy the chance to let our hair down a bit. Work hard Play hard!
JCI is also proud to remember receiving the DBJ Best Place to Work in 2015 this summer. 2nd Place in our size category! We always knew, but it is SO fun to be recognized. Yolanda and our Project Managers went to accept the award – a team that makes up the core of JCI. Great work ladies, we ARE a great place to work in Dallas!
Let’s not forget that our president Andy Jones celebrated his 50th birthday this year! In our estimation, such a monumental event should not go unrecognized.
And finally, what started as a summer Fit Bit Challenge has become a great way to stay healthy and active together. Each month winners are chosen and awarded the Stinky Sneaker trophy to be proudly displayed until it can be taken by another challenger! Lots of fun. As the season changes and the holiday’s approach, this will be a valuable motivational tool to keep us healthy and active as the seasonal treats start showing up. Stay Fit!
Summer 2015 has been a whirlwind! We have had so much fun while accomplishing some great work for happy clients. What will the holiday season have in store? Lots of parties. Stay tuned!
