Interview with Jason Jenkins
How long have you worked for Silver Star?
What does your job entail?
I manage the Network Deptartment. My team oversees the Network Operations Center (NOC) in monitoring all of our network equipment to provide the highest availability and best experience of our services to our subscribers and employees.
What do you love most about your job?
It’s never boring. I have been working in this industry for 23 years and have witnessed constantly changing technology that broadens perspectives and presents new challenges that have filled every day I have come to work.
What do you love most about the community you live in?
The little things you notice that are no longer present when visiting a larger city or metro area. People that actually say Hi, the person that will wave when they pass your vehicle. People helping people. Teachers and leaders concerned about the welfare of my children. The scenery can’t be beat as well.
What is something unique about you?
Most probably don’t know that outside of my career at work, I have had an interest in home building, and have built (4) homes from the ground up with my wife and I completing a majority of the work.
What’s your favorite hobby?
I do enjoy all the camping, fishing, hiking, ATV riding and hunting that many of you do… But honestly, I’m kind of a home body. I like to just be at home meddling around the house, working on my personal projects, and watching car shows with my son.
Fast Five – 5 questions fast!
What is your favorite winter activity?
Shoveling snow of course. Isn’t that everyone’s favorite ?
Have you ever tried something that you knew you would be bad at – what was it?
Water skiing, not my thing.
What is your favorite thing about someone in your family?
My children. Amazing the young adults they are becoming.
What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?
Buffet in Arkansas that served alligator, possum, armadillo, etc.
Finish this sentence – “When I dance, I look like ….”
I should clearly not be doing this…
Thank you for all you do, Jason!
About Meet the Team
Silver Star is very fortunate to have a team of unique and talented individuals that work whole-heartedly to contribute to the success of our company. Without them working diligently, both behind-the-scenes and first-hand with our customers, we would not be able to meet our rural communities’ technology and communications needs.
Needless to say, we are very proud of our team and we would like to share them with you. So, every few weeks, we will introduce to you to a member of our team by sharing a short interview-style member profile.
