I’ve always known Joe to be dependable, hard working, and ready to support any project that would benefit NACHI and its membership and what is happening as I write this is really not that much of a surprise to me…but it goes a long way to confirm and to highlight the commitment and dedication of NACHI’s finest leader.
Tomorrow, at 8:00 a.m., Joe will begin teaching his Commercial Inspection course to members and guests of the Missouri NACHI Chapter.
Although the course has been scheduled for months, and Joe’s flight has been scheduled for weeks…tonight, his flight out of New Jersey was cancelled. It being late and on a Friday, there were no more open flights for him to take to St. Louis.
But…Joe being Joe Farsetta…there will be an 8:00 a.m. start to his class. Why? Because he got himself a flight to Chicago where, at 1:00 a.m. he will be catching a bus that will carry him to a St. Louis bus station at 6:00 a.m…in time to make it to his room for a quick shower and to teach his class.
He’s a hell of a guy and I am proud to know him and call him my friend.
Oh…and if you are reading this on your laptop as you sit between two Sumo Wrestlers with sleep apnea, Joe…be sure you stay on the bus as it makes its many stops along the way. I don’t want to lose you in farm country and miss the amazing story of your trip that is certain to thrill the crowd, tomorrow.
