Jeff has made it known that someday he would like to be the Secretary of Transportation. Working with him during his internship here at Amtrak, we are confident that this will become reality.
Jeff is uniquely enthusiastic, particularly on the topics of management and engineering, and he is not afraid to share his ideas with others and welcomes the opportunity to engage in thought provoking discussions. Jeff is always growing, always challenging himself, and always giving his best effort. In all my interactions with Jeff I have found it is not in his nature to rest on his laurels or shy away from challenges, especially those that take hard work and persistence to overcome. He has more than his share of those life skills that are hard to measure but essential to academic and moral growth and to success.
Mr. Kessler is a well-rounded, hard-working individual with a combination of intellect, compassion, perseverance and creativity rarely seen in today’s younger generation. He demonstrates unparalleled leadership skills coupled to a rarified sophistication for analysis, science learning and mentorship sharing his passion for learning and entrepreneurship. Jeff’s creativity is surpassed only by his drive and commitment to making things better and more efficient.
Jeff has a strong work ethic, excellent communication, research and technical skills beyond what I am able to describe. He is motivated and knowledgeable and always ready to learn and experience what he does not know.
