Premier Prize Profile: Erik Jensen
It’s hard to believe we’re already in the first week of August, but that means we have Premier Prize/Duck Race winner for July–Erik Jensen. Erik started at AMT as an intern in the billing department and then came on full-time in January of 2014 after he graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a degree in journalism.
My most enjoyable moments on the job . . .
When Moose shares his opinion on the current state of the Cardinals. Regardless of what he says, I’m always surprised (and entertained).
Something I’m passionate about . . .
History. There’s an incredible amount of information out there and so much to learn.
My favorite subject in high school or college . . .
That’s quite fitting. History. Who doesn’t like a good story? Especially when it’s real.
My favorite AMT activity . . .
It has to be the golf outing. It’s always a great time to get together as a group and enjoy the evening over a round of golf. Sometimes we even get lucky and hit a good shot or two.
One of my favorite things to do on my time off . . .
Hang out with my wife and two daughters. Also, golf and watch Formula 1 (and of course, the Cowboys, Cardinals, Bulls, and Illini).
If I could live anywhere in the world . . .
Good question. I don’t mind it here in Olney, but I’ve always thought it would be cool to have a bunch of land in Montana or Wyoming.
My favorite food . . .
Pizza. It’s never done me wrong.
My favorite way to unwind . . .
A nice, cold beer.
The restaurant I like to go to most often . . .
I prefer delivery or carryout if possible.
If I could hop a plane today I’d travel to . . .
Rome. I’ve always wanted to check it out.
Someone who inspires me . . .
Besides my dad, I’m going to have to go with Winston Churchill. If you haven’t read about him or his lifestyle, you’re in for a treat.
The funniest thing that’s happened to me recently . . .
I don’t know. I don’t particularly like funny things to happen to me, so I’m sure I have a way of naturally blocking them out.
My best friends call me . . .
Erik. EJ. E.
When I grow up I want to be . . .
Happy. That’s all that matters. Thankfully, I already am.
