Mathers announces loss of Jim Pruett

pruett“It is with great sadness that Mathers announces the loss of Jim Pruett, Director of Safety. Jim was a treasured part of the Mathers Team.

Safety was important to Jim not only because it was a requirement of our customers but because he wanted everyone to come home safely to their families at the end of the day.

Jim was a strong family man who loved and supported not only his own family but his work family as well.

Quick with a smile, a joke or a hug, Jim left his mark of love and kindness on all those he came in contact with.

We will miss Jim greatly and will strive to carry on his legacy of safety and love.”
