J.P., a young husband and father, felt increasingly dissatisfied working graveyard shifts in a dangerous, dead-end job. Marty, a trusted coworker, encouraged J.P. to go back to school and find a career that would make him proud. Two weeks after this conversation, Marty was killed on the job.
“With Marty’s wake up call and the need to rejoin my life, I decided to enroll at Chemeketa. Now I get to pursue my passion, be my own boss and gain freedom and security for my family.”
J.P. is starting his own graphic design business with his friend Jeremy, a fellow Chemeketa Visual Communications graduate. The two are prepared to launch their business the first day after graduation.
Featured graduates were nominated by faculty and staff for their exceptional work at Chemeketa.
