Employee Spotlight: John Copeland

Each month, we introduce one of our amazing TJM staff. For October, our spotlight shines on sales representative John Copeland!

What do you do at TJM and how long have you worked here?

I have worked for TJM for about a year and a half. I handle some of our Challenge Coin websites.

What’s your favorite product that you’ve sold or helped design?

I have not sold them yet … But, I’m waiting for someone to order some of these AWESOME BBQ scented temporary tattoos! Give me a shout, you know you want some!

What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?

I am a musician and have been playing professionally for close to 15 years! If you are out and about in Ocala and surrounding areas, you can most likely find me singing and playing guitar at some of your favorite establishments.

Tell us a little about your family.

I am happily married to my wife Kaela. We have two sons, Aiden, 8, and Ezra, 2. Two cats, Marco and Nala along with a plethora of tropical fish!

What do you like most about living in central Florida?

I love being near all the awesome attractions Florida has to offer! Beaches, lakes, theme parks, and being close enough to sneak off to see the Jacksonville Jaguars play from time to time!

What do you like best about working for TJM?

TJM is an exciting place to work! I love being able to assist with a variety of different projects. Every day is different, and you never know what you’ll get to work on next.

Any exciting things planned in the future?

Everyone in my house, except me, has October birthdays! I look forward to a

month full of birthday parties leading up to Halloween!

Anything else you’d like to tell the world about?

Blue Cheese does not go on wings. Pineapple belongs on pizza.*  Thanks for coming to my TED Talk!
