Jesse Yado Selected as the March Beacon of Light at Firelands
(March 29, 2018 – Sandusky, Ohio) Firelands Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce that Jesse Yado, housekeeping attendant courier in the Environmental Services department, has been selected as the March Beacon of Light Award winner. Jesse has been employed at Firelands for 26 years.
The Firelands Beacon of Light is a program developed to recognize team members who exemplify and exhibit the values of Firelands Regional Medical Center in the form of exceptional Attitude, Commitment and Enthusiasm (ACE). The award goes to individuals who ACE it every day for patients and coworkers.
Jesse’s nomination reflected this dedication. “Jesse has a multitude of duties and takes care of all of them with an ACE attitude. There are many times when he is called to handle a mess on the floor or suddenly asked to set up the Community Resource Room. As soon as he get the call, he is there to take care of the request with a smile and a “can do” attitude.”
“Jesse is very committed to doing a good job. An example is always going the extra mile to make sure that anything scheduled in the Community Resource Room is set up correctly. It isn’t an easy task to keep on top of that assignment; the room has to be constantly set up for programs and then again broken down to accommodate an exercise class. He is always there with a “no problem, I’ll take care of it.” He is generous of spirit and of his time.”
“Jesse is a great attribute to South Campus. No matter who he comes in touch with, he greets them with a friendly smile. If it is a guest, he will always make sure they are going in the right direction. And for anyone that is around him for a very long, they will soon learn that he is always ready to have some fun and can be quite the prankster! His enthusiasm is very infectious and creates a great working environment for those around him. He is definitely a strong team player for our Firelands family.”
Outside of work, Jesse volunteers at the Sandusky State Theater and enjoys camping, fishing, and car shows. He resides in Sandusky and has one daughter.
