On Saturday, September 17th, 2016 the University of Missouri played the University of Georgia. The tailgate was flooded with employees from not only the Columbia, Missouri office, but also with those from St. Louis, Missouri and of course, Atlanta, Georgia. The rivalry was fierce and co-workers enjoyed cheering on their respective teams together!
Every year, JES Holdings hosts tailgates for all of the home games of the Mizzou football season. Employees, friends and family meet at the JES tailgate outside of the stadium for food and beverages before the game and a watch party during the game if they do not have tickets. The JES Holdings tailgates are a long tradition of encouraging JES employees to interact with their coworkers and introduce their family and friends.
While the game was close, Mizzou ended up narrowly losing the game 27 to 28. Despite the loss for the Columbia, Missouri crew, JES Holdings employees had a great time and are prepared to cheer on their team together at the next home game.
