Archives: Rant n’ Rave
Today in our Employee Spotlight is Tom Moore, Sales & Solutions Specialist here at SJF. He’s been with SJF for several years, so he knows the material handling business inside and out.
Tom is a relatively quiet guy… until he has something to say. I think he likes to save his daily allowance of words for important stuff, not just random chatter.
Even though Tom isn’t a big talker, he is, however, well known around the office for his clever remarks and interesting theories. It’s not unusual to hear him say something that stops everyone in their tracks and cracks them up. He keeps us laughing, often when we least expect it!
There is one major exception and that is if you ask him about fishing. Then he’s got a wealth of information and things to say about one of Minnesotan’s favorite pastimes. He and his wife enjoy spending time on local lakes or at their cabin, enjoying nature in search of “the big one.”

What do you like most about working at SJF? The people here at SJF. We have a great team!

What’s your favorite day? Mondays. I’m ready to get back at it after the weekend.

Name something about you that people would be surprised to know: I’m an open book so if you want to know something, just ask.
What question would you like to answer that you didn’t get asked? What’s my favorite lake to fish? Long Lake.
We’re excited… We’re pumped… This is our year and we’re ready to cheer our very own Minnesota Vikings all the way to the Superbowl! Go purple and gold!
We’re showing our Minnesota Pride loud and proud at SJF this week! Be sure to watch the Twins take on the Yankees Friday night at 6 pm!
Congratulations to the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Boys Track team for their outstanding 1st place win at the True Team Section 4A on Tuesday, May 7. Also snagging a 2nd place trophy was Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted’s Girls Track team at this same event.
We have two very proud parents in our SJF family that are especially enjoying the excitement of the win – Rhonda Remer and Jason Deiter, both in the Sales department.
Rhonda’s son, Remington (11th grade), and Jason’s son, Chase (8th grade), are members of the HLWW Track team and competed in this meet.
After 14+ years, we finally decided to feature Matt Johnson, our resident SJF Engineer, in the SJF Spotlight. Matt is our Lead Engineer at SJF. He is involved in various stages of the sales cycle and is often called in to assist customers during and after product implementation. He also works with all departments and can definitely be called the “Go to Guy” for SJF.
Family is a priority for him. He has a wife, Alisa and two kids, Callen & Ella. In the summer he does camping and family trips. In the winter you can find him back on his hockey skates while coaching his son. He’s also a football fan, although his loyalties don’t lie with the Minnesota Vikings but with the (gulp) Green Bay Packers. We’re working on forgiving him for that, however therapy may be required… 😉
