Albuquerque Sunport celebrates birthday of dedicated employee

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)– The Sunport is celebrated a very special employee who turned 94 Friday.

Jesse Waddles has been working at the Sunport for more than 20 years.

He started in his early 70’s when most people have retired.

His job is pushing wheel chairs and getting people to their flights on time.

Jessie says he prides himself on his quick work especially when flights are delayed, but what he loves most is being his own boss.

The Sunport celebrated Jessie’s big 94th birthday with cake.

Before he was a skycap Jessie worked at Sandia Labs for 30 years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
