Congratulations to our Mission, Vision, Values Quarter Three Award Winner from Southeast MN: Jerome Glass. Here is Jerome’s MVV nomination from Brie Thompson: “We just had a client’s meeting recently. Their mom/guardian couldn’t stop gushing enough about Jerome.  She had seen him at a holiday party, was very impressed with how he was with all the participants.  She shared her compliments with the entire team at the client’s meeting and I wanted to pass along what a wonderful job they think he is doing, in his position, as well as the goodness of his heart.”

How long have you been working at Opportunity Services? 2 years and 7 months

Have you held other jobs at Opportunity Services besides your current position? I started with OS as an Enhanced Staff Member.

Why do you work for Opportunity Services? I enjoy the wide spectrum of clients we serve and the main goal of helping everyone integrate into the community as much as possible.

What five words best describe you? Compassionate, Calm, Patient, Understanding, Dependable

Did you always know you wanted to work with disabled individuals? I have not always wanted to be in this field per say. However I have always wanted to help people with their problems and assist them through issues that they couldn’t on their own.

Why are you deserving of this MVV award? I don’t feel I am any more deserving than anyone else who pours their heart and soul into trying to make others have a great time and enjoy life.

What do you like to do for fun in your free time? I enjoy interacting with my son, playing video games, board games, playing Poker and hanging out with friends.
