Patrick Young, our newest addition to the Jaywalker Staff, just celebrated his 5 Year Sobriety Birthday yesterday. Pat made the move from Minnesota to Carbondale to work here. He is one of our alumni and lives his life to the fullest. He has a new job and a new home and still takes the time to explore Colorado on his off hours. He’s been backpacking and camping with his friends quite a bit this summer in Colorado. During that time he has summited 6 Fourteeners; four of which were in one day. This stamina and determination is part of who he is. We see this in his sobriety, how he has attacked his new career and his overwhelming love for the outdoors. He is one of our staff who steps up to go on the expeditions with our clients. Whether it’s camping at Twin Lakes, Mountain Biking in Moab or service work at Mission Wolf, he is there, to help, to guide, to serve, to bond.
As the days become weeks and then months, it has been a pleasure getting to know you better Pat. You come to work with a smile on your face and work hard to make a difference in all of our lives.
So I wish you a Happy Birthday Pat. May you continue on your quests in the outdoors and your good work here at Jaywalker.
