(October 29, 2014) COLUMBUS — After more than half a century, a tireless postal worker is finally ready to take a break and retire.
Moses Jamison has worked with the US Postal Service in Columbus for 58 years. Jamison says in that time, he’s seen just about anything you can imagine being shipped.
His coworkers at the Columbus Processing and Distribution Plant near the airport call him Mr. Post Office.
In those 58 years of work, Jamison has never even taken a sick day. The president of the mail handlers union says Jamison has over 5,000 hours of sick leave earned over his career. “You feel bad and everything, but you’re taught and raised ‘still got to work, still got to eat,'” Jamison said.
His coworkers say while they will miss him, his legacy will live on through all the lessons and mentorship he’s given them.
Jamison will now have more time to spend with his family. He and his wife have raised two boys, adopted three more, and fostered more than 200 children since 1962.
