For this act of kindness, our family is forever indebted and wanted you all to know about the caliber of employees that you all have at JFK. Thanks again and Happy Holidays!

Employee: Sebongile Ziyambe
Airport: Newark Liberty International Airport
Experience: ERMC Supervisor Sebongile Ziyambe came to the rescue after overhearing a transmission over the radio between myself and ACES Stafford Woods of a passenger entrapped in the elevator in Terminal A. Supervisor Sebongile remained outside the elevator reassuring the passenger while I remained on the line with her, trying to keep her calm while she waited for the elevator technician. Unfortunately once the passenger was taken out of the elevator, she did not have time to catch her flight before it was to depart. Supervisor Sebongile escorted the passenger to American Airlines ticket counter, informing them of her situation and was able to help get her booked on the very next flight to her destination, on a 1 pm flight. Very well handled by the Supervisor, great job

I can tell she is smiling under her mask because she smiled long before we had to wear these things... On the day she saved me, I was replacing large stickers on the tables and my badge stuck to one of the stickers. Not seeing it happen, I threw away my badge. Esther saw me panic 15 min later when I realized my badge was missing. the last thing I wanted to do was throw a curve ball to the badging office in the middle of the season. I looked for 15-20 minutes including digging in the trash. Esther stopped, and pulled the trash on her own, and found my badge, stuck inside some of the decals I removed. given the day, the time, and how long into her shift she had been working, It would have been pretty easy for Esther to keep on working and do her normal great job. She took the time out to go above and beyond. I am thankful for her and that team every day.

Either giving them the information, or forwarding their calls to the proper parties. Many times receiving calls regarding paying tolls, though she does inform them, that's not handled here at the airport, she redirects their calls to the proper places. I would like to thank ACES Tamara for her diligence in giving the correct information, but also for her assistance when ever I have to ask her something I do not know. She always has the answers.

Employee: Naromie Charles
Airport: Newark Liberty International Airport
Experience: I had to drive to the raillink station when there was no train service and we went into a partial bus operation. Upon arriving at the raillink it was apparent that a number of service vehicles were blocking the area near door number 2 that is normally used for loading passengers onto the bus. I observed Naromie getting the passengers coming down the stairs and off of the elevator then walking them approximately 70 yards to the front of the terminal where buses were able to pull in to accept passengers. She maintained control of the flow of passengers by escorting them instead of just pointing to the area they would be picked up.
