Matt Waters

I nominate Matt Waters, my boyfriend, as the hard working man of the week.

He gets up every morning with a smile on his face and works non-stop as a plumber to support our family.

When he gets off work he grocery shops, starts laundry, and cooks dinner for us and our 3 kids. He helps pick up kids and shuffles them from school to jujitsu and horse riding lessons and never complains.

Our little family is so very appreciative of all he does for us and want to make sure he gets the recognition he deserves!

Joel Whitney

Joel should be this week’s hard working man because he’s an amazing man, husband and father.

He not only works long hours every day working for UPS, but he also then comes home and continues his work to help take care of our 4 children.

Due to me having surgery recently he has really had to pick up some chores around the house, but he always does it with a smile on his face and love in his heart.

We love and appreciate him more than anything and would not be where we are today without him.

Josh Fernandes

I would like to nominate my Husband for the hard working man of the week.

Josh works unpredictably long hours in construction  and often comes home exhausted and COVERED in mud, concrete and who knows what else! He always walks in the door with a smile on his face ready to kiss and love our 1 year old daughter.

Josh not only works hard for his company, but also works hard on our marriage. We recently celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary and no matter how rough things have gotten, I’ve always known that my husband will be right by my side to help navigate all of life’s (and marriages!) many obstacles.

His daughter, Lilly Jean, and I love Josh with all of our hearts, and are incredibly blessed to have him in our lives!

Francisco Espinoza

I would like to nominate Francisco as my hard working man.

We meet years ago when we were both going through hard times after divorce. He has been my rock ever since.

When we met he was working a truck driver on weekdays and as a warehouse man on weekends. Weekday shifts started at 3:00 am and he would never know what time he was getting out. His route often was the Bay area, and if you have ever commuted towards that way either in the morning or the afternoon you are doomed for traffic. There were time when he would be out at 9:00 pm and back at it at 3:00 am. On Friday when most of us look forward to the weekend he would wake up at 5:00 am to unload trucks of meat for the startup of the week. What was done usually by 2-3 men he would do, taking inventory and rotating product.

On Saturday evening when we all think ” Sunday, rest day, he once again went to work to receive even more trucks and stack order and deliver!!! He worked like this for 13 years!

My hard working man has 5 children with his first wife, 3 adopted children (mine) and one that is ours. He is currently working 12-16 hour shifts during this pandemic and yet comes home with the greatest deposition to get stuff done around the home, help the kids with homework, and spend quality time with them playing cards or video games. I do not know where he gets all his energy. The kids ask to go on bike rides, and when most would say ” I’m tired, later or another day” he is up for it.

He is always willing to help anyone and support all his children and if you were counting that was 9! He is also the soul provider for his widowed mother which in this year has been tougher than most due to Covid.

I would love for him to be recognized locally. I know that I am thanking him for all he does and telling him how much I appreciate all he does. If it were to come from the Cabin it would be a tremendous surprise!

Even if he does not win the knowing that I shared this story with you gives me hope and makes me realize even more that we, as a family are blessed to have him.

Jim Atkins

My finance Jim is the perfect example of a hard working, resilient man.

Jim helps run his family’s 26-year-old restaurant, Two Guys Pizza in Groveland. Due to COVID-19, Jim has honestly been through it all these past six months. Two Guys having to shut down their indoor dining to comply with state requirements, new health and safety rules for food handling, power outages, change shortages, the loss of tourist season in a town that relies on the busy season to stay afloat…the list could go on.

During all this hectic juggling of trying to keep the family restaurant running strong while many businesses had to close down, Jim and I purchased our first home and got engaged.

Jim is not only always there for me, but his family means the world to him.

During the recent evacuation that Groveland experienced with the Moc Fire, Jim helped three other households pack and prep for evacuation before he even got a bag together for himself. Jim is selfless and does not know what it means to put himself first.

I am beyond proud to become this man’s wife one day. His positive outlook and encouragement that he shares with his employees daily is inspiring and motivating.

While COVID-19 can bring a lot of us down, Jim is a wonderful reminder that working hard through any situation can bring you great success and accomplishment.
