AYCJetter pays special visit to our Customer Support Center in Salt Lake City

AYCJetter, Drew Lawrence visited our Customer Support Center in Salt Lake City on Thursday. He was met with a warm welcome.

With the start of AYCJ travel Drew is traveling over 33,000 miles over the course of 29 days (and 30 flight segments!) on his AYCJ Pass to ‘Raise Cancer Awareness’ and ‘Make Positive Connections’ in memory of his mother, Kathleen Lawrence (who died of brain cancer during Drew’s first year in college).

Drew says, “I am doing this because I want to work to eliminate the connection that we all share because of cancer.  I want to get rid of those negative connections and replace them with positive ones; whether that be positive conversations, experiences, second-hand stories, or just positive thinking.”

Drew is chronicling his travels all across America through his blog, Facebook, and Twitter. To find out more about Drew and his inspiring journey, please visit his social media sites online:

Drew was excited to meet all of our Support Center Crewmembers, the fabulous “behind-the-scenes” JetBlue Crewmembers who have helped provide him and all the other AYCJetters out there with such a great AYCJ JetBlue Experience.

Happy trails Drew and thanks for stopping by to see us!

    It was a real pleasure hosting our special, VIP AYCJetter, Drew Lawrence in SLC yesterday. He flew in from LGB and was met by several Crewmembers as well as our local ABC News affiliate for an interview. From there it was a whirlwind tour in one day as he was flying out on the red-eye to JFK last night. His day included a visit to our Salt Lake Customer Support Center where he met with several Crewmembers – “Raising Cancer Awareness” and “Making Positive Connections” in memory of his mother who lost her battle with brain cancer in March 2001. We then treated Drew to lunch at a local “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” spot called The Cotton Bottom where they make nothing but the best garlic cheese burgers you’ll ever find.

    Since Drew is a firefighter in central Virginia, we arranged for him to meet up with some of the firefighters with the Salt Lake City Fire Department. He toured one of the new Mobile Communications Command Center units and then went to Station 5 to meet the guys and do some ride-alongs. One of the firefighters that Drew met just recently battled non-hodgkin’s lymphoma – he’s currently in remission and doing very well. This particular firefighter is someone who responded for a search and rescue mission with other Utah Firefighters two days after the 9/11 events at the World Trade Center site.

    Drew’s visit left an incredible impression on all of us.

    I want to personally thank Drew for reminding me that I have so many things in my life that I’m incredibly thankful for – an amazing family to continue creating memories with, a great job that gives me the ability to work with and meet wonderful people and a beautiful city that is surrounded by incredible scenery. So many blessings – not to be taken for granted.

    All of us in SLC wish Drew the very best as he completes his 29 Days Until 29 journey. Safe travels and best of wishes!!!!!
