On Dec. 9, 2012 Terex Aerial Work Platforms (AWP) lost a valued team member and friend, Dan Jones. Dan was born and raised in Kentucky, where he graduated from Middlesboro High School and Morehead State University and was a guard on the football team. Dan was a 25-year veteran in the equipment industry and spent his last 12 years employed by Terex as part of its AWP business segment representing Genie branded products.
As regional manager at Terex AWP, Dan’s territory included Indiana and Michigan. While working the territory Dan developed and built many strong relationships with his customers or as Dan liked to call them “friends.” In his personal life Dan volunteered as a coach for many soccer clubs and associations in the states of Kentucky and Indiana. Dan also enjoyed golfing, driving his ‘65 Mustang, wildlife photography on his rural property, enjoying a good cigar with friends, and most of all showing pictures of his two beautiful grandchildren.
Dan is survived by his wife Donna of 35 years, sons Jonas and James, grandchildren Tegan and Kara, and their mother Joann.
