May Employee Spotlight

This month we recognize our Monticello Minnesota plant manager Jerry Mallon. Jerry has been with TSI for almost 21 years. He started with us in August of 2000 as a welder, put a ton of hard work and dedication to this great company and was promoted to Plant Manger in 2020. He definitely enjoys working for TSI as he gets to share his knowledge with anyone who asks, and also continues to learn more everyday. He is always in the shop figuring out problems and helping others learn , the way others helped him. Always has a smile on his face, extremely kind hearted and just a great human being.

Jerry grew up in a small town in Kansas with his 6 brothers and 2 sisters. His dad farmed and owned a garbage hauling business, and Jerry decided at first to follow in his dad’s footsteps, and owned a garbage truck for 13 years. Jerry might be the only person in the world who prefers winter to summer, hence his move to Minnesota in 1998. He has one son who lives in Duluth, and our entire TSI family at the plant. When he is not working, he is still working driving a truck part time. Jerry, from all of us here, THANK YOU for all you do!
