Steady procession

Clerk traded kitchen work for postal career

Jesse Moore, a mail processing clerk at the South Jersey Processing and Distribution Center, has been with USPS for 60 years.

Jesse Moore joined what was then called the Post Office Department on Nov. 20, 1962.

He had just left the U.S. Air Force, where he says he spent a lot of time on kitchen patrol and mess hall duty.

In comparison, “Postal work was an easy choice,” said Moore, a mail processing clerk.

During his 60-year postal career, mail processing has certainly changed. But according to Moore, “It’s no big deal: Just roll with the punches and don’t let it bother you.”

During a recent ceremony at the South Jersey Processing and Distribution Center, Moore received an engraved clock, a model of a vintage USPS 1971 delivery Jeep, an organizational cap, a T-shirt and a VIP parking spot.

Said Moore: “I’m proud to work for USPS because I’ve received many awards for my services, and it makes me feel very much appreciated and respected.”
