A Christmas Celebration in the new JAX Mechanical Office
JAX Refrigeration celebrated the holidays in style this year. The company Christmas party was held at the new Mechanical headquarters in Jacksonville Beach. We had an excellent turnout…and a visit from the big man in red! A great time was had by all. We enjoyed delicious food, tasty vida de louie margaritas and celebrated a successful 2019 with the people that made it all happen. We were happy that so many of our JAX Family were able to attend.
What's Your Resolution for the New Year?

6. Be happier/better mental health
7. Be more healthy
8. Be a better person

Less than 8% of people will actually follow through with their resolutions. Inc.com suggests setting CLEAR goals can lead you to the real success that you and your team are aiming for.
  • Collaborative (Goals should encourage employees to work together collaboratively and in teams)
  • Limited (Goals should be limited in both scope and duration)
  • Emotional (Goals should make an emotional connection to employees, tapping into their energy and passion)
  • Appreciable (Large goals should be broken down into smaller goals so they can be accomplished more quickly and easily for long-term gain)
  • Refinable (Set goals with a headstrong and steadfast objective, but as new situations or information arise, give yourself permission to refine and modify your goals)

Our JAX family participated again this year for the 8th annual Hope for the Holidays packing event. The holiday spirit was in full view as almost 400 people joined forces at TPC Sawgrass to help The Jim and Tabitha Furyk Foundation pack over 4,000 bags of food for kids in need in the greater Jacksonville community.

Since 2011, the Jim & Tabitha Furyk Foundation has provided funding and products to pack over 10,000 holiday meals packed by family volunteers during this annual event and delivered to food-insecure families throughout St. Johns and Duval County. The children and families that are selected to receive these bags are recognized through the county and are part of the following programs: Blessings in a Backpack, the Malivai Washington Youth Foundation, Hugs Across America, Anthony J. Stinson Jr. Foundation, Feeding Northeast Florida and more. The holiday meal included a canned ham, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy, chicken broth, stuffing, noodle-roni, rice-a-roni, quaker oatmeal, hot cocoa, candy canes, granola bars and more.

Over 50 tables were piled high and stacked deep underneath in preparation for the volunteers arriving in the early evening.

It was a special night and over 4,000 children had a big bag of holiday food to bring home over the holiday break.
You've probably already heard about how much we believe in our JAX Family, in the quality of our people, their values and hard work that help make our company great. But you don't have to take our word for it, check in here for the latest on what people are saying about us.

William Stinson, Brad Grice and Colby Stinson went above and beyond, working all day Saturday and through the night to ensure our customer’s Fort Worth, TX processing plant was operational for production by Monday.

“You guys (JAX Refrigeration Service) went above and beyond…
I know who I can count on.”

JAX Around Town
In the true spirit of giving, JAX Refrigeration adopted the family of dreamer, Angel (age 17), for Christmas this year. Holidays can be a very stressful time for Dreamers and their families due to the financial strain of ongoing medical treatments. Many families simply do not have the time nor resources to purchase gifts and groceries in preparation for special occasions because their lives are focused on making their child healthy again. Angel and her family enjoyed new bicycles, clothing and other goodies. JAX is proud to be part of such a wonderful organization that makes a direct impact on members of our community.
