Where did MJS Safety start?
OUR FOUNDER - Michael Stookey:
A former United States Marine and Vietnam Veteran, Michael spent 21 years in the asphalt paving and sand & gravel heavy-haul industry before a truck accident changed his life and took him out of driving a truck, something that he dearly loved. After attending Front Range Community College to complete his AAS in Transportation & Materials Management he attended Trinidad State Junior College to complete his AAS in Occupational Safety & Health. Mike started MJS Safety to provide Workplace Safety & DOT compliance services to small companies throughout Colorado in 1995. His focus has been on providing quality safety solutions to fit the needs of a variety of companies in a variety of industries, including DOT-regulated companies, construction, underground utility & wet utility construction, sand & gravel mine employers, oil & gas operators and service companies, and many other companies. Michael's extensive knowledge of the trucking industry is sought after by many in the industries he works in. When he is not on the road serving clients he can usually be found fishing. In February 2021 Mike passed away, transferring the management of MJS Safety on to Carrie and Jeremy. He always wanted to expand the family business, and the legacy he leaves behind is one of family. Those who knew him, worked with him, fished with him all have the same message - he was truly a one of a kind person and is deeply missed by his family and his friends.
Carrie has worked in the safety industry since 2000. She graduated from Trinidad State Junior College with an AAS in Occupational Safety & Health, and has completed many Professional Development and learning programs since finding her passion for safety. She has worked hard to promote safety in many different industries, through work with clients and volunteering on different safety committees and councils. She spends her time working with companies to find affordable safety and training solutions for today's industry requirements for both small and large companies, and to protect their most important asset - their employees. Carrie has been involved with the DJ Basin Safety Council in Fort Lupton, Colorado since 2010. She has served as Council Officer, Secretary, and current President. Carrie has also been a member of the National Utility Contractors Association Colorado Chapter Safety Committee, is the Secretary for the Colorado Damage Prevention Action team, and has served on numerous working committees and groups to promote safety in the workplace in Oil & Gas and Construction. In her spare time (when she has it ) she is also very involved with her children, grandchild, volunteering in the schools, serving as the elementary PTO president for 5 years, and is heavily involved with FFA, 4-H & the Weld County Fair.
Jeremy has worked in many different elements of construction, utility installation, driven small and large commercial vehicles, confined spaces, equipment maintenance, and evaluation. He is the "master of the mechanical stuff", and the go-to guy for technical questions, equipment location and servicing, confined space entry solutions, competent person for fall protection, and air monitor calibration and repair. Jeremy has been in safety since 2009. His extensive knowledge of how things work on the job site and off, as well as his determined problem-solving skills are a great asset to our company and our clients. Jeremy has been involved with the DJ Basin Safety Council since 2011, building and maintaining the Council website, and has served as an officer for the past 4 years.
