Check out all the hella rad essential workers we’ve featured so far below!

Monday 4/27: Julianne Glaser – CNA at Enloe
nominated by Theresa Fegley

“I’m nominating Julianne because she’s caring, hardworking, and loves what she does. Also because she takes extra shifts when called in and she’s been through a lot the last couple of years. The Camp Fire caused her to lose her place, then she wrecked her car a year later, and she’s finally getting back on her feet. Not having to cook a meal would be very helpful!”

Tuesday 4/28: Katie Vann – RN at Enloe
nominated by Kyle Vann

“My wife’s an RN at Enloe, always excited about work, willing to do what ever is needed even if she’s never done it before she jumps in and figures it out. She’s the hardest worker I know to the point it sometimes makes me look bad haha, and as a family of 4 would make an awesome easy dinner after she gets home from a 12 hour shift less time cooking and more time to drink what goes the best with pizza….beer! Thank all you guys at Z-Rock & Woodstocks for doing this for all the people willing to be working these types of jobs it means a lot!” 

Wednesday 4/29: Sonya Kopel – Bakery Manager at Raley’s
nominated by Wendylyn Clemens

“Sonya is an amazing worker who wakes up every day to take care of her fellow customers and also spends the extra time to come in early to make up all the special bags for the seniors. She is always positive and you can’t spell essential without Sonya!” 

Thursday 4/30: CJ Castaneda – Safeway worker
nominated by Megan Delorne

“My little brother works at Safeway, and I feel deserves this.  When many co-workers quit, he stayed ’cause he didn’t want to leave the store hanging. He’s built a relationship with customers and is always there to help so much so he doesn’t go out after work! He doesn’t want to get people at work sick because at the end of the day his goal and what he goes to school for is nursing, so he knows the risk and fully cares.  He’s a great we’re we’re very proud of!” 

Friday 5/1: Amy Davis – Sonogram Technician at Enloe
nominated by George Davis

“My big sister Amy has always been essential to our famliy, as well as her community. She has 5 children she cares for with no help, and recently she adopted my brother’s 2 children. She’s a tireless worker and bubbly as a person in her exhausting shoes could possibly be. I’ve never met another person more willing to go the extra mile for the next human than her. I can promise you there is not another entry more deserving than her and the best thing about it is she loves pizza. She thinks different pizza places are different food LOL if you eat D*****s tonight and Woodstock’s tomorrow you didn’t eat the same thing two nights in a row in her mind, its hilarious! I love her you should give her this meal. Thanks for hearing me out have a great day. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz RrrrrooooocKKKKK!” 

Monday 5/4: Cassie Ruckel – Patient Cook at Enloe
nominated by Mari Santoyo

“Cassie works 5 days a week 10- 6 in the kitchen making food for everyone. She makes all the patient foods, and makes sure nothing is messed up. She has even taken on an extra shift lately so now she only has one day off. She is the kindest, warm hearted person you’ll ever meet. Her patients and her co workers love her! She has also recently become a home owner at the young age of 24 and she did it all on her own! I know she has been so stressed out lately, but she deserves to be nominated for all her hard work, and for never calling out of work, even if her sciatic nerve kills her she’ll continue to work her ass off! She is loved and appreciated so much. She has done so much in her short life and deserves all the happiness in the world.” 

Tuesday 5/5: Symon Gomi – Banker at Tri Counties Bank
nominated by Kiersten Goni

“My dad is the hardest working person I have ever known and damn does he go out of his way for everyone and loves it! He is so gracious and truly cares about all of his co-workers & customers so much.  I just want to nominate him, to make him feel appreciated and to say thank you for all he does for his family and everyone at his job. I love you so much, Dad! ♡ “

Wednesday 5/6: Tierra Monay Bassham – CNA at Enloe
nominated by Mary Dean

“I’m nominating Tierra because she’s been working as a CNA at Enloe despite the risks and concerns of contracting COVID-19. She also looks forward to continuing her education so she can devote herself to nursing and set an example of perseverance to her two songs and her husband. Some of the Enloe staff were affected by reduced hours due to restrictions of certain procedures being done, so her family has been hit pretty hard financially.  These tasty pies will be so meaningful to them, worth more than face/dollar value – it will give all of them a reprieve from the fears and sometimes desperation caused by the unknown during these uncertain times.  It really will feel like a celebration, no joke.” 

Thursday 5/7: Mars Marshall – Plumber at Experts in Your Home
nominated by Sondra Marshall

“I’m nominating my best friend and husband Mars. He has been working everyday plus overtime to make sure all your plumbing needs are dealt with.  From clogged sinks and toilets, to diggign ditches to find the leaks underground. It is a dirty job and nobody really considers what plumbers do to keep us out of this mess while doing it safely.  He comes home tired and still goes out there even on call to get the job done. I hope to get him recognized along with all the folks at Experts in Your Home for the hard work being done during these times.” 

Friday 5/8: Zoie LeFever – Head Teacher/Assistant Director at Creative Minds Early Learning Center
nominated by Heather Lingemann

“Zoie is the Head Teacher and Assistant Director at our preschool. Zoie is flexible, and rolling smoothly with the changing times for child care right now with a smile on her face. She is always fun loving with the children in her care, helps them to learn accountability from her own example, and is endlessly creative.  She keeps the routine and continuity going for our center. The children would never know that anything is different in our community right now were it not for the many children who are absent, and staying home because their parents aren’t part of the Essential Infrastructure Workers List. I can count on her to be present both physically and mentally everyday. She is an essential element of our preschool, I don’t know what I would do without her. Zoie is a total rock star!” 

Monday 5/11: Jessica Tutone – RN at Prestige Assisted Living in Oroville
nominated by Ryan Foster

“I’m nominating my amazing girlfriend Jessica Tutone who is the RN and in charge of the staff and all of their residents at Prestige Assisted Living at Oroville. I have multiple reason for nominating her. She was in a car accident in November and her car was totaled. Her neck and back were seriously and most likely permanently damaged, and even through that she has maintained to stay on top of it, always providing the best of care and being a positive source energy. She is on call all the time and answers the phone to help with any problems, which it seems there have been more of since the COVID-19. The guests being older and more at risk have had a extreme lock down, which causes more problems for them. A total change of routine and only being able to stay in their rooms with no visitors or family. This makes it rough on their mental state and health by not allowing them to be out and moving about. She is doing her best to follow the laws placed while still trying to provide the best care. I feel like she would be a perfect winner, but whether she wins or loses I know she deserves to be thanked and praised for her actions. “ 

Tuesday 5/12: David Chandley – Big O Tires
nominated by Teresa Chandley

“I am nominating Dave Chandley because he is hard working, I wish I could nominate the entire crew! They try to follow social distancing rules but with a small waiting room sometimes it’s not easy to enforce. The entire crew are exposed on a daily basis and deserve the recognition for all of their hard work. Dave works very hard and serves the public without fail with respect and a sense of humor despite the fact that the public can be difficult to deal with. The stress that they deal with on a daily basis is tremendous and I think they deserve a treat for all they do. If I have to pick one person though it would be my hubby Dave Chandley.” 

Wednesday 5/13: Deborah Bruner – Nurse Manager at Chico VA Veterans Clinic
nominated by Ryan Schiel

“Deb Bruner goes above and beyond taking care of local area veterans at the Chico VA Veterans Clinic. She is the Nurse Manager at the clinic and with last week being VA Nurse’s Week I wanted to honor Deb’s military service and dedication to Veterans as well as honor the nurses in my clinic” 

Thursday 5/14: Robert Chapman – Grounds & Maintenance at Eaton Village
nominated by Heather Thompson

“People don’t realize everything that goes into the places they live. Robert keeps an ENTIRE apartment complex looking great and functioning properly so people can live a comfortable life. It’s something a lot of people take for granted.”

Friday 5/15: James Cargill – Cargo Flow LLC
nominated by Jordan Cargill

“My husband is a long haul trucker and he’s out there delivering the supplies to stores and making sure we have what we need. Not only is he usually gone for about a month but with this we don’t see him as much, we miss him, and I want to show him some love and appreciation.” 

Monday 5/18: Jesse Hamilton – Peter’s Well Drilling
nominated by Katie Helton-Potts

“Jesse is the hardest working person I know. He drills water wells for a living, which I think people don’t give enough appreciation or credit for. He and his co-workers deal with all types of people and this COVID issue has made their job twice as hard. He still shows up everyday, works 12-14 hours, deals with people that are also stressed out and on edge, and does it with integrity and the willingness to help ease peoples minds. He goes above and beyond for his job, family, and people in general. I’d love it if we/you could help show him that he is valued, appreciated, and that all his hard work and sacrifice isn’t for nothing. “ 

Tuesday 5/19: Erinn Bromley – 6th St. Center for Youth
nominated by Michalyn Renwick

nominated by Jay Evans

“She is the manager there and goes in at 3:30 am Monday through Friday to be open by 5 am still serving her loyal customers with coffee and food on the roller grill for them. Even with her staff cut down she still does it all for her store. Stephanie is a wonderful woman, my wife, she is a great mother to our kids, and she is out there every day during this. She’s making sure her store keeps running and that her customers are taken care of even in this time of COVID-19. She is a very essential worker, always with a smile on her face, and every week makes sure all her employees are safe and still have a safe place to work.” 

Friday 5/22: Jaclyn Gateley – Enloe Hospital
nominated by Brandy Grout

“She is not only an amazing NICU nurse but an amazing friend. She always puts others first and is one of the most caring and helpful people I have ever met. She is a blessing to many ❤️” 

Monday 5/25: Deanna Mayberry – United States Postal Service
nominated by Dan Mayberry
“She’s my wife, she’s a super hard worker and she’s a mail carrier and does the whole “gotta go in to work no matter what; rain, sleet, snow… pandemic” and I’m really proud of her.” 

Tuesday 5/26: Silvia Newhall – GrubHub Delivery Driver
nominated by George Dunlop
“I nominated Sylvia because she’s my girlfriend and she’s doing her best to hustle. She’s a GrubHub worker who delivers food to people that need it, and has been working hard all through the pandemic.

Wednesday 5/27: Angelina Orozco – Freight Worker at Dollar Tree
nominated by Nicole Caldwell

“Angelina is a very hard worker. She is my main freight person and if I didn't have her I don’t know who would help me fill the store for customers. I really appreciate her help.” 

Thursday 5/28: Jesse Ingalls – Patient Care Coordinator at Feather River Health Center
nominated by Martha Smith

“Jesse is a patient care coordinator at the FRHC specialty department. He’s always gone above and beyond for patients, the providers, and his fellow co-workers. Even though he lost everything in the Camp Fire and relocated to Red Bluff, he continues to work in Paradise. He’s also been helping with checking temperatures of patients at the Corning Clinic. If anyone deserves the recognition it’s him.” 

Friday 5/29: Summer Smith – EMT for Butte County EMS/First Responders
nominated by Jessie Smith

“I am nominating my wife because she works graveyard shift as a EMT for first responders, running calls all night helping people, then comes home tired but still manages to do this new distance learning with our 5 kids while I work days. She never stops and just keeps going without any complaints. Her working full time and trying to home school 5 kids has got to be frustrating. She deserves some recognition for all she does for her community and family.” 

Monday 6/1: Joshua Hendon – Lead Technician at Gills Motorworks

Thursday 6/4: Stephanie Myers – Butte County Behavioral Health
nominated by Justin Mora

“Stephanie Myers and the rest of the Behavior Health staff deal with some crazy situations and with everything going on it’s more intense now. They are some of the first responders that never really get noticed or commended on their work. She has been on call off and on around the clock dealing with suicidal, homicidal and delusional people on a daily basis and an overwhelming amount of stress. I know she would be super stoked to revive some praise for her awesomeness. She is an all around great person, super sweetheart, and deserves to be nominated and she loves Z-Rock! You guys are awesome keep up the good work and rock on! “ 

Friday 6/5: Chris Root – Nurse at Oroville Hospital
nominated by Justin Mora

“Because he’s been working 12 hour shifts in the surgical department of Oroville hospital, found a way for himself and his coworkers to be paid when they cut back non-essential surgeries, and set up staging areas for overflow COVID patients.

Monday 6/8: Rhonda Creek – Director of Critical Services for ICU at Oroville Hospital

“She is the Director of Critical Services for the Intensive Care Unit at Oroville Hospital. Keeps that place running at a top-notch level and makes sure every patient gets handled with complete professionalism and respect. Helps keep my dad in great health. Always brings a smile to whoever she comes around and is a grandma that any child could ask for. Trust me. She has plenty to choose from. Plus a fantastic role model that walked into my life a few years ago and I couldn’t be happier about meeting her.”

Delcie has had to go back and forth from Chico to Red Bluff to help with houses that receive services from AMJaMB, on top of doing work at the office, for her brother with autism and just making sure her employees are feeling safe. Delcie goes out of her way to make our days. She is one of the best bosses I’ve ever had, and I consider her a friend. We love you Delcie and you greatly deserve this nomination “

So i have never seen this girl take a break yet! She just gets up and goes, doesn’t stop until she lays her head down at night….. she is my best friend and she is constantly tired and she feels like no one appreciates her or notices her, so i just want to show her how much she isn’t ignored and how much she really means to not only me but everybody in her life!!!!”

Monday 6/22: Tami Whatley – Farwood Bar & Grill
nominated by Bill Whatley

“Look, I know everyone is nominating their spouse as they should, but mine’s better and I’m about to tell you why. Like the majority of the world, life shut down for us in March. I was laid off my job on 3/20 yet was able to keep afloat with work here and there. Tami picked up a few more hours at work. See, Tami works at what I’m calling the best restaurant around as a server, or did. Now a days Tami helps with the phones for take-out (this nation’s new standard, thanks COVID), prep work, and whatever’s now required of her. Did I mention she’s a mother of 3 boys to which the youngest at 16 is, of course like all kids his age, at home instead of school? So now we know Tami as a mother of 3 with one still at home now being home schooled by you guessed it, Tami, employed with a few more hours than normal, and now playing nurse to me. After I was laid off in march I was able to find some side work to help keep the household afloat but that ended on April 9th after i had an accident at work involving a pair of pliers and my left eye. As of then I’m blind in my left eye pending healing and possible transplants. Tami has managed to make the time, every 2 hours to come home from work and administer eye drops for me every day along with be my therapist cause I can’t get out of my own head. Did i mention she pulls all this off with a smile on her face and love in her eyes despite having a collapsed disk in her back with arthritis grown in its place? She’s not just a rock, she’s THE rock to which i love more than life itself! So recap; my wife, Tami, is not ONLY my wife but a mother, now a teacher, the bread winner, my nurse, and despite her pain she’s been the f***ing rock I promise I wouldn’t be here because of!” 

Tuesday 6/23: Jason Cooper – Cooper Motorsports
nominated by Heather Glass

“Jason is my boyfriend and he deserves a free meal for not only overcoming the trials and tribulations of the last couple years, then opening his own business, but for sticking through it when COVID changed everyone’s spending habits only a couple months after opening the doors. After having his tools stolen years ago and rebuilding his collection, he lost most of it again when the Camp Fire took down his personal shop he shared with friends. After dealing with depression due to the fire and other family issues, he started doing work for friends out of the “garage” he built by hand, next to the trailer we live in due to losing our apartment. “ 

Wednesday 6/24: Jan Feelo – Sanitation Dept. Manager  at Andersen and Sons Shelling
nominated by Ashley Renee Gavlez

“Jan Feelo is the hardest working person I know. She is the Sanitation Department Manager and works hard everyday ensuring that our product is safe and so are the employees who work here. She works endless hours and maintains a positive attitude keeping up the moral throughout our entire work family. She is truly what keeps us all going and I am proud to call her my boss!”

Thursday 6/25: Dan Lockler – Kitchen Worker at Enloe
nominated by Randy Cervantez

“Good friend of mine who works the kitchens at Enloe. It’s real easy to focus on nurses and they deserve our respect but this guy has been working every week since the shut down began and he keeps the staff and patients running when things get busy. He’s a quiet guy who isn’t the type to ask but I’d say he deserves a stress free meal for him and his family. He and his wife are good people (and great cooks) who are always eager to help those in need. After they lost their place during the Camp Fire and found a place to call home in Chico they went right back to helping their friends in need.”

Friday 6/26: Derek Aristo – Manager at Sav Mor in Gridley
nominated by Valera Aristo

“He is the manager of the grocery store, when they were out of stuff he would travel to their warehouse with his own truck to pick up supplies to make sure the customers were taken care of with what he could. He held toilet paper in the back for the elderly that couldn’t make it out super early in the morning.”

Monday 6/29: Autumn Fleming – Assistant Manager at Dollar General in Oroville
nominated by Kristel Marmom

“I nominate Autumn because she's a savage! She's a single mother of two risking it all to serve Oroville residents.  She's dedicated to her store 100% and deserves recognition for all her sacrifices. She practically lives at the Dollar General out by the Home Depot in Oroville and she's an awesome mom and essential worker. Thank you, Autumn, you rock!!”

Tuesday 6/30: James Cook – Paradise Unified School District Bus Transportation Mechanic
nominated by Mailia Chronister

“He has worked so hard during COVID to get the buses, keep them going, so that the bus drivers could deliver food and lunches to the kids and families that need it and is still continuing to help keep them on the road to keep kids safe and supervise lunches for families. If I could nominate the whole team at Paradise Unified School District Bus Transportation Mechanics I would.”

Wednesday 7/1: Amber Oller – Lee Street Residential
nominated by Robert Oller

“Since the start of the coronavirus outbreak my wife has maintained an 80 hour work week taking care of people. She works overnights at Lee Street Residential taking care of clients with Prader Willi Syndrome, has a one hour break, and then heads to her second job providing care for a elderly man paralyzed on one whole side of his body by a stroke. Even having no downtime she tirelessly gives not only her time and effort but her love and support to these individuals. Simply put, I cant think of any person more deserving of being recognized for her efforts than Amber.”

Thursday 7/2: Tom Heryford – UPS
nominated by Carley Heryford

“Tommy my wonderful husband has been busting his butt in this heat 5-6 days a week to make sure everyone gets their essentials. He's especially been worried about bringing the virus home due to me (his wife) and our 3 year old daughter having asthma. He goes to work everyday and is one of the hardest working people out there. I nominate my fabulous husband, Tommy.”

Friday 7/3: Randy Rader – Voltage Specialists
nominated by Ryan Rader

“I nominate my father, he is a employee at Voltage Specialists and his job there is to keep fire systems running to reduce the chance of fires in restaurants, hospitals, schools and much more. This also drops the chance of having to send people out to get rid of fires that could also increase the chance of more COVID related sickness or death.”

Monday 7/6: Destiny Erickson – Shift Manager McDonald's Oroville
nominated by Jeremy Erickson

“I'd like to nominate my wife, Destiny Erickson. She's a hiring manager at the Oroville McDonald's. We have a two year old son Jeremy Jr. I am not able to work due to medical issues but my wife is such a trooper. Since the start of this whole thing she's been the backbone that's holding our brand new family up. She's been supporting us financially and emotionally; she is the best mom and any child would be lucky to have her! Not once has she complained, she just needs to know how important and amazing she has been not only in keeping all other essential workers fed but also at figuring out how to be a mom and wife. We also recently had our first wedding anniversary!”

Tuesday 7/7: Alexander Vezinaw – Oroville Carl's Jr.
nominated by Michael "Vez" Vezinaw

“My son is a new father, he has a college education, and works the drive thru at Carl's Jr five days a week, which means he comes in contact with many people, so he has a good chance of catching the coronavirus from someone. He is epileptic and cannot drive, so he walks to and from work many miles. My son is my hero; great father, husband, grandson, brother, and son. He should be recognized, thank you.”

Wednesday 7/8: Nicki Crook – Glenn County Social Services Office
nominated by Bailey Dodson

“My mom has been working tirelessly throughout this pandemic helping the people who can no longer help themselves. She helps them receive the unemployment that people are forced to get because of this disaster. I think she is a true hero because she never complains about the hard work she has to do. She wakes up every morning with a smile, happy to help everyone in need. I admire her so much. I think she deserves more credit for what she does.”

Thursday 7/9: Danica Sanders – Server at La Familia
nominated by Martha Smith

“I nominate Danica because she is not only going through nursing school at Chico State but she has also worked two jobs during the pandemic. One at La Familia as a waitress and at North State Chiropractic as front/back office assistant. She's a hard worker and has been working hard through nursing school while working two jobs. She'll be an amazing nurse soon enough. She deserves recognition.”

Friday 7/10: Denise Gabriel – IHSS In Home Care Giver
nominated by Jennifer Franks

“We both worked for a 73-year-old woman. I had bladder surgery and then contracted the coronavirus, Denise made sure that she was taken care of, working her shift and mine. Working for this particular woman, you’d always go past your hours with no pay. Then Denise got sick and still went to work until she physically couldn't, was tested for the virus and came back positive. She was told to be on 14 days sick leave from the doctor, and when she told the elderly woman her return date, Denise was told that she had been replaced.”
