Describe how your Nominee has exceeded his or her Job Description, becoming a hero to you or others. Provide an example or as much detail as possible of the things that they do that go above and beyond their job description.
Marty has a heart for service. He goes above and beyond to help those in need. Just after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in September of 2017. Marty received a call from a woman who said, "I heard you help seniors." Marty's response was, "yes, I try. What do you need?." The woman explained that her mother was stranded in Puerto Rico and she wanted to get her out of that mess and home with her. So Marty went into action. Marty not only few over to bring this woman's mother home to California, he picked up two other families. No to mention, it wasn't a wasted trip to Puerto Rico, on his way over he took food, water and supplies to deliver to those in need. Marty described the airport where he and friend landed their plane as complete and utter chaos and devastation. They spent hours just trying to reach the families they were there to pick-up because all communication lines were down. Fortunately, he had a satellite phone that made it possible to rescue the woman's mother and the other two families. They all have been safely reunited with their families here in the U.S. because Marty took the call, gave his heart and all he had to help this elder woman reunite with her daughter. That is my idea of a hero!

Marty is a great guy. Anyone that knows him will, of course, share endless compliments and stories of his good deeds and sincere interest in helping those around him whenever he can. Everyone here will share how awesome he is but the only true way to know is to run into him in the community or at his office, or by having him help you and your family. Good luck on the award.
