Get to know the faces and personalities that make JT Septic the best in the business!
Michael Appleby, Certified Installer/Operations Manager - “Appleby” is a 3-year veteran, who is also a Veteran. He started as a Laborer and quickly moved up through the ranks to Installer and is now our Septic Division Manager and Operations Manager. He has also obtained his Class A CDL since joining our team. Appleby is known around the office for his quick wit - ask him and he’ll tell you he gets all the hard jobs! But that’s only because of his eagerness to learn and advance, which we know will contribute greatly to a bright future here at JT Septic.
Bill Resh, Delivery Driver - We are a family business, and here is the proof. Bill is our Service Technician and also Devin’s father-in-law. Bill is a very quick learner and an extremely loyal team member. His many talents include: President of a Motorcycle Ministry Club, a licensed realtor, a father, husband, and a Grandpa. Bill has brought excellence to our team of exceptional people.
Tim Gramly, Outbound Customer Service - Tim started out learning the Service Technician role, but his abilities to work well with the public brought him into the office. He spends much of his day on the phone assisting customers with the projects they need done at their homes or offices.
Douglas Hallam, Pump Truck Assistant/Laborer - Doug came to us from another place where he didn’t feel valued. Our owner saw potential and offered him a job after observing his great customer service and excellent work ethic. Doug’s nickname is "Strike 2." He earned it from calling in on his first day and being late on his second. However, the owner believed in his potential and after letting Doug know that was his Strike 2, the team started calling him by the nickname. Doug has already shown his perseverance to learn new things and eagerness to be able to do every job. Some team members want to change his name to Bubbles because of how much he talks, but if you ask him he would say his nickname should be Hollywood.
Michael Lewis, Lead Service Technician - “Lewis” has been with JT as a Lead Service Technician for a year now. He has shown great potential as a service technician and as a leader and we’re grateful to have him. His willingness to learn and his always-evolving talent for troubleshooting is a great asset to our company.
Greg Moore, Outside Supervisor - Greg has been with JT Septic for 3.5 years now. He started as an Operator and is now an Outside Supervisor. Greg drives over an hour to bring his talent to our team - for which we are incredibly grateful. His role as an Outside Supervisor means he is responsible for making sure all our techs have what they need on a day-to-day basis, and he excels in managing our team. When he’s not with us, you’ll find Greg out on the lake enjoying his boat!
Devin Ellis, Service Technician - Devin started out as an Installation Technician and has advanced to Field Service Technician status. He knows how systems work as they go in the ground and as they function over time. He can handle the electrical side of his work as well as the plumbing. He is dependable and pleasant to work with. His nickname cannot be repeated in polite company! Just call him Ricky if you run into him!
Brad Moore, Lot Porter - Brad aka “Lot Lizard” is an important part of the team. As Lot Porter he has a wide range of duties. He does all the tasks that need to be done from loading out a customer with gravel to keeping up with how clean our vehicles and facility look. But that doesn't always get noticed first - he wears a smile and covers the bases doing whatever is needed.
Wes Legates, Mechanic - Wes is talented in many ways. He can drive anything on the road, but he can also keep the equipment road-worthy. If it's broken, Wes can fix it. The team quickly gave him the name "REDO" because he had to fix something twice when he transferred from Delivery Driver to Mechanic. He knows and enjoys mechanical work. We depend on Wes to keep trucks, trailers, and heavy equipment in great working condition. Maintenance and repairs get attention because Wes won’t dog any project!
Chris Petty, Pump Truck Operator - Chris is a recent transplant to Oklahoma whose previous experience in propane delivery is translating well to septic pumping. Chris likes to spend his free time with his wife and kids exploring their new state. He is finding his niche with the JT Septic family, and we hope to have this big teddy bear around for years to come.
Seth Sumter, Installer Technician - Seth is a new member of the team here at JT Septic Co. As an Installer he is not just in at the ground level, he’s actually often below ground level when installing pipe and conduit. His co-workers say he is a good worker and fun to be around. He drives a work truck to and from work; not everybody’s daily ride is an F350!
Justin Rhodes, Installer - Justin, aka "JR" or "Huggies", is one of our younger ones as the nicknames might imply! Huggies has been with JT for almost 2 years now, and his growth is nothing less than remarkable. He started out as a Laborer and is now an Installer and training new hires. He loves to work on his Jeep during his free time and… just a note: Huggies is single, ladies!
Christopher Sole, Pump Truck Operator - Chris is a highly experienced driver, having had his CDL since the late 1990’s. He also comes to JT Septic Co. with a significant work history driving a pump truck. As a Pump Tech, he works on site with customers to provide the essential service of pumping out their septic systems. Don’t call him an old turd, but he might remove a few for clients on a daily basis!
Trey Dunlap, Sales - Trey is our newest Salesman and shows much potential. He is from the area and knows and loves the community as much as we do. We are so looking forward to watching him grow with the team and are grateful to have him!
Jae Chastain, Office Assistant - Jae is the newest member of our team and was hired as an Office Assistant. She has already shown so much potential and we’re excited to watch her grow in her role here at JT Septic.
Dinah Thomas, Septic Service & Pumping Coordinator - Dinah has been with us for about a year and came to us all the way from California (we don’t hold that against her.) She’s crafty and is always doing some DIY job. Dinah has shown to be an asset to our company because she absorbs information quickly and in great volume - we know she’s got a bright future ahead!
Charlotte Teehee, Accounting Controller - Charlotte keeps us all in line and makes sure all of our bills are paid. Charlotte is also known as Mom to Jason - she’s been with him from the beginning (literally!), not only in life but also since he has started the company. She is also known as Memaw to DJ and loves hauling her to rodeos.
Delia Birdsong, Office Helper - Delia is our cheap labor! She is the daughter of owners Jason and Erin Birdsong. She helps out every chance she gets by filing and assisting with other office chores. Delia, also known as DJ, is 15 years old and loves anything and everything relating to horses. She thinks she’s already the boss, and the guys are already scared of her taking over the business!
