iLuvMyTrucker: James Wakeman

JamesWakemanMy father is a second generation owner-operator in a family fleet of trucks. All Mack to the core, mechanic, owner, driver, wrecker operator. Dedicated service first to God, then family and clients. Has loved trucks and trucking all of his life and is still going strong at 68. He believes that picking a job that is your hobby will make everything easier in life. We are now getting into fourth-generation family working in the fleet. Fifty years of service to the community. He is the all-time mentor and teacher — everything from greasing and cleaning trucks to taking care of our clients and their needs to keeping the trucks moving and everyone happy. I am honored to match logs with my father any day!
