Cleveland, OH - August 2016 - JIS, Division of Jergens, Inc. is pleased to announce an addition to our team! Sam Gaston recently joined JIS as a Consignment Representative.


Sam comes to JIS after 8 years with a National Industrial Supplier. During that time Sam held a variety of positions, most recently as an On-Site Service Consultant for a large Northeast Ohio manufacturer. Sam feels that his background in the industry taught him the value of building relationships and working as a team. He believes that he will contribute those abilities to JIS as he transitions to his new position.

A local native and die-hard Cleveland sports fan, Sam has two daughters, ages 11 and 14. In January, a new little one will join them! Fun fact, he was a private chef for 6 years and owned a catering company for 11 years. 

Sam looks forward to taking on the challenge of learning a new role, as well as meeting his new co-workers.


We are excited to see Sam's development within our Consignment team (not to mention his contributions to our next potluck). Sam will be located at our Headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio. You can reach him via email at Sam.Gaston@jis.com or by phone (216) 706-6534.
