Industry Spotlight – Fletcher Jonson

What is your life verse and why?
There are several, but Colossians 3:17 is always on the forefront of my mind and heart.

“Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

From serving your family to work to driving in traffic, it applies to every single minute of life. There’s never an aspect when it’s irrelevant and the Holy Spirit’s conviction constantly keeps me check.

 

Favorite ice cream flavor?
It’s hard to go wrong with ice cream, but it’s always better with more chocolate. Blue Bell’s Dutch Chocolate is my go-to flavor. I rarely have it, so whenever I do, it always hits the spot!

 

Who’s your hero?
The “obvious” answer is Jesus. If I had to choose someone else who has impacted my life, it would be my dad. He and I had the relationship every father and son want. He met Jesus face to face in Sept. of 2012 when he was 54 years old. As painful and difficult as that experience was, the Lord allowed me to experience His grace in an unimaginable and unexplainable way.

 

How many hours of sleep do you need?
If I can get between 6-7 good hours each night, I’m a happy camper.

 

If you could eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?
That’s tough. There are so many fantastic options. For health purposes, I’d have to say either some sort of omelet with chicken, spinach, tomatoes, and onions, or a particular salad from Newk’s Eatery that never misses.

 

Hobbies?
I love sports. I’m not as active as I want to be, but I love to play just about anything as long as there’s good camaraderie. Basketball is my favorite.

I also love serving and spending time with my family, which is why I’m less active than I’d like to be. My wife and I have a little girl, Alexandra, who was born Sept. of 2018 and our second little girl, to be named later, is due in June of 2020.

 

Worst gift you’ve ever received?
I honestly can’t think of anything, but I’m sure it was that pair of dress socks from the estranged aunt whenever I was 8. That’s what every 8-year-old kid wants, right?

 

How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Total guess, but probably 15.

 

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Full transparency… Deep-fried mountain oysters.

 

Toilet paper: over or under?
Trick question. We all know it doesn’t matter what I think. It’s whichever my wife says and she says under. So… under!

 

On a scale of 1-10, how funny would you say you are?
Well… I think I’m hilarious, so I’d at least an 8. My wife MIGHT say a 5… If you catch her on a good day. 😉 Ok, maybe a 6.

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
