Firefighter Jonathan Turner
Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?
I served in the military for 8 years and I wanted to continue to serve
the citizens. While in the military, I drove 18 wheelers for a couple of years,
then I worked for CIP and thatís when I applied for a position at HFD.
I joined because I knew this job demonstrated discipline and structure.
What you like most about Hendersonville Fire Department?
I like the brotherhood and the camaraderie amongst us all.
I like the relationship that we have with our community.
What is the most significant development in your career?
At first it was just being a part of the City of Hendersonville, but as my
career grew and I became a part of the Hendersonville Fire Department
Honor Guard, this would have to definitely be my most significant
development. I also enjoy being a part of the Hendersonville Dive Team.
Any Community Activities?
I have worked with the Christmas for Kids Foundation and also help
every year with collections for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
What are your future plans?
I plan to continue to move up in the ranks and continue helping the community
for which I serve. I will strive to be a positive role model for upcoming youth.
I have been married for 19 years to my wife Diesha Turner.
I have 3 daughters, Argenese, Mercede and Zamara Turner.
I am proud to serve the city as well as this department.
I love my brothers and sisters in the fire department and all that
we stand for. May God Bless you all!!
