We are so excited for our buddy Jeff Rhinerson.  Today marks an incredible new journey for the Live with Jeff host.  This morning, he reported to his brand new position at Old National Bank, where he has been named Branch Support Associate.

For the last five years Jeff has worked at the Dollar General location in Thruston.  And though he loved that job, Jeff had a "bucket list" goal of working at Old National Bank.  Through Puzzle Pieces' Employment Opportunity division that dream is now a reality.

According to Puzzle Pieces Executive Director Amanda Owen, Employment Opportunities serves as a "bridge between individuals with disabilities (who have the desire to work) and the businesses in our community looking to hire."  With Old National Bank on board with the program, Jeff was a natural fit for them.  With each business participating with Employment Opportunities, Puzzle Pieces becomes an invested partner seeking to learn the job, the skills it takes to perform that job and the training and support necessary to ensure that the employee and employer are successful.

The one thing we know about Jeff!  He is most definitely going to be successful.

Assisting Jeff will be Kitty Jones, who is the new director for Employment Opportunities.  She will work closely with Jeff and make sure he is honing the skills necessary in his new Branch Support Associate position.  Jeff will be practicing those skills on and off the job.

We are so excited for our buddy Jeff!  Since debuting his Facebook show Live with Jeff, he continues to tackle items and goals on his bucket list.  He has dreamed about working at Old National Bank since Ben Trockman, who is Old National's Diversity and Inclusion Outreach Specialist, spoke at Rooster Booster a couple of years ago.  Now, that dream is officially a reality.  Jeff is now an employee of Old National Bank!

If you visit Old National Bank's main branch on 4th Street in Owensboro, make sure you say "Hi" to Jeff!

And, of course, his popular Facebook show will continue as well.  You can catch Live with Jeff each Tuesday at 1:30pm CST on the Puzzle Pieces Facebook page.
