SpaceX's 2014 launch from Cape Canaveral
"If early schedules hold up, Cape Canaveral will be the world's busiest spaceport in 2015 with 24 rocket launches.

In 2014, the Cape completed 16 space launches, including 10 by ULA and six by SpaceX. The Air Force had projected 21 launches, at the start of the year, including five more by SpaceX."

The Heart of RUSH: Our People
Meet Tish Holley, Executive Assistant/Estimating Coordinator


Tish and her husband, Jason

LaTisha Doak Holley (Tish) has worked part-time as Executive Assistant/Estimating Coordinator for RUSH since November, 2010. Originally from Kokomo, Indiana, Holley moved to Florida as a teenager with the goal of attending the University of Florida. She and her college sweetheart, Jason, have been married for 22 years, and have two children: Justin, 18, and Caitlyn, 16.


"As the kids started getting older, I began looking for a way to challenge and apply myself while they were in school. Being a part of the RUSH team was just what I wanted," says Tish. "Part-time hours, with people that are fun to work with - I love my job!"


One of RUSH's most recent projects, Playalinda Brewing Company, is Tish's favorite to date. "It was incredible to see Downtown Titusville's old hardware store transformed into a craft brewery. I'm so proud of the way RUSH was able to maintain the vintage charm of the place while creating a modern 'hang out' for Titusville's community of craft beer enthusiasts."


Tish describes RUSH as a work-hard, play-hard kind of company. Her most memorable moment at RUSH so far was being included in the Pedro Pan Cruise Celebration. "Everyone at RUSH works incredibly hard to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and they also know how to reward those efforts with a good party!" 


"Above all," says Tish, "The best part about working for RUSH is the people. I feel like RUSH is one big family; good people that care about each other."


Tish's Favorite Quote: "Don't worry, be happy!"  - Bobby McFerrin
