Jeremy Benefiel hails from Denton, Texas and served in the U.S. Army for sixteen years. He was engaged in two deployments: Bosnia in 1999 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004. During his time in the active Army and Colorado National Guard, his skill sets were utilized in various positions. He served as a petroleum supply specialist and military intelligence during his first term in the active Army. After completing his first term with the Army he transitioned into a college student and earned Firefighter, First Aid, and Emergency Medical Technician- Basic certifications. He began his civilian career with Lockheed Martin in Littleton, Colorado as a firefighter. He continued as a firefighter for about two years until being deployed to Iraq. In Iraq, and throughout his National Guard career, he served as a firefighter team chief. After returning home to the U.S., he obtained a position as a civilian firefighter with the Fort Carson Fire Department and continued to advance within the fire department. He earned HAZMAT Technician certification, Fire Inspector II, Fire Officer I, and was the president & creator of the Firefighter Recognition program. Accepting a position overseas as a contract firefighter with Wackenhut Services Iraq, he was advanced to the position of Lieutenant. He made his way home after a couple of years and became active duty Army again, this time serving as a recruiter. He completed three years in Colorado Springs, CO and four years in North Richland Hills, TX in the capacity of recruiter. He was selected to become an assistant recruiting station commander, team leader, top recruiter, and recruiting station commander before leaving the U.S. Army in 2016. He has also served as a volunteer firefighter with Decatur Fire Department since November of 2015.
During his time in the U.S. Army, he absolutely knew it was a calling to support our country and our way of life. In addition, he has acquired more brothers and sisters from the Army family to help navigate through life’s ups and downs. And he now has the opportunity to support the community that raised him to have integrity, trust, honor, and strong work values. In Jeremy’s words, “It has been my honor to become a piece of the veteran business community and hope to honor the people I serve.”
Jeremy shares his life with three boys: Logan 20; Jacob, 13; and Evan, 6. His desire is to see them become respectable young men, instilled with the values of respect, honor, and integrity – the values ingrained in him from family and throughout military service. A vital role in this business is being filled by a person who wears two hats: operational manager and Jeremy’s mom. In his mother and others in his family, Jeremy has seen the strength, intelligence and dedication he wants to focus into the JDog brand. Other Veterans and Military family members are assisting with the workload and providing additional labor.
The CEO and creator of JDog Junk Removal and Hauling, Jerry Flanagan, and his team at the corporate office have not been only able to employ of 100 veterans, but to make over 100 veterans business owners. There is no other organization that mirrors the consistent professionalism, drive and dedication needed to succeed in putting that many veterans into ownership opportunities.
“As I have served my country, I now hope to be able to serve my community as Denton County JDog Junk Removal & Hauling. Just ask and I will find a way to help.”
