The Faces of PSA featuring Jamaal Williams

Name: Jamaal Williams

Title: Aviation Parts Specialist (SAV)

How long have you worked for PSA? Two years

How long have you been in the airline industry? Where did you work before PSA? I’ve been in aviation for four years. Before coming to PSA, I was in the United States Army in supply and logistics, as well as fueling.

What brought you to PSA? The opportunity to grow and share my leadership skills with a great military-friendly company. I wanted to stay in the aviation field after I was medically retired from the Army and I wanted to be a part of PSA’s growth.

Give us a brief overview of what you do: On a daily basis, I receive and ship out parts. I maintain proper inventory levels of supplies and solvents as required and perform stock transfers of parts, physically moving them from one location to another. I also ship, receive and store HAZMAT materials.

What is one of the biggest challenges of your job? Being patient.

You are passionate about physical and mental fitness. Tell us why it’s important to you: Both go hand in hand to me. When you take care of your body, your body takes care of you. I feel like it’s important because when you perform physical fitness, it’s a confidence booster. You look and feel great. It also involves performance of the heart and lungs and the muscles of the body. Since what we do with our bodies also affects what we do with our minds, I believe fitness plays a big factor in mental alertness and emotional stability. We have to train our minds to go beyond the pain and get the “I can’t” mentality out our heads. You will be amazed of what you can accomplish.

Are there any volunteer organizations you work with in this area? I dedicate my free time to the YMCA of Savannah helping kids with sports and training. I’ve volunteered at the YMCA for four years. I started volunteering when I was stationed at Fort Lewis in WA. The best thing about volunteering there is impacting and being a positive role model for the kids.

What advice would you give PSA team members who want to live healthier? Start today! Do not procrastinate and just believe in yourself. The journey is amazing. No matter how bad you want to give up, just remember why you started and the award at the end is worth it.

What do you love about working for PSA? I love the cultural diversity as PSA.I appreciate the different skills, talents and staff that make up the PSA team. We all can work together as a team to accomplish a common goal, no matter our race, gender and religious beliefs.

Would you recommend PSA and why? Of course. The people in PSA are amazing. It feels like one big family and the flight benefits are great.

Tell us one thing about your role most people don’t know: You have to be versatile and have great decision-making skills.

What has been the most rewarding part of your job? The smiles on the customers’ faces when they board the flight, knowing I’ve played a role in being able to get them to their destination safely.

Tell us something few people know about you: I’m a natural pro body builder. I won the Bluegrass bodybuilding Championships (Kentucky) in September.
