Jesus Juarez Sr. - Grower Liaison

Jesus joins our growing team as a Grower Liaison at the farm level and is the Father of Jesus Jr, “Chucho” our Fresh Operations Manager. When he heard about how great it was to work for To-Jo, he joined our family too! Who would have thought experience in the mushroom industry was so common, but it is here in Kennett Square. Jesus brings 34 years of experience with him to To-Jo!

Anyone who knows Jesus is aware that he enjoys working out and watching sports in his free time. His favorite teams are The Philadelphia Eagles and Penn State College Football. On Sundays he watches about 10 hours of football. Can you tell he loves football? He also enjoys going out to dinner with his wife. How sweet to mention that, major brownie points Jesus!

Jesus says his favorite part about working here is that he likes working with all employees throughout various departments and appreciates that everyone is friendly and easy to get along with. And to that we say One Team…One Family

Ivan Hernandez - Culture Ambassador

Ivan comes to To-Jo as our Culture Ambassador; looking to drive employee engagement and elevate our overall workplace enthusiasm.

Ivan likes to play sports in his free time, football being his favorite. He also loves to cook, especially Mexican and Italian Cuisine.

When interviewed he had only been here for two days, but he said his favorite part about working at To-Jo is that everyone is very welcoming with open arms and he loves the culture. During his rotation his first week, his favorite department was the fresh packing plant because of how enthusiastic and lively the environment was.

John McQuiston - Purchasing Agent

John joins the To-Jo Family as our new Purchasing Agent. He enjoys watching hockey and motorsports, and does a variety of home improvement projects in his spare time. So handy!

Rescuing dogs is another one of his hobbies! Who doesn’t love dogs? He is currently on his 7th rescue, and has two loving pets in the house, an English Bulldog named Harley Quinn, and a Boxer mix named Bruce Campbell.

John also has a reckless side and loves riding his 865CC Triumph Thruxton motorcycle on the weekends. Nice!

So far, his favorite parts about To-Jo are the people and his mile and a half commute to work. Not fair!
