When Lt. Col. Jamie Hunt transitioned to the Air Force Reserve from active duty, he could only imagine one place to continue his career: Southwest Airlines. After years onboard as a happy Customer, he was able to join the Family in 2014. Living with a Servant’s Heart is an integral part of who Jamie is as a person, Employee, and veteran. Whether he’s ensuring the safest flight possible for our Customers, teaching as a reservist instructor, or volunteering with the Arizona Rangers and Tucson Police Department, Jamie is committed to serving his community. Southwest is proud to recognize him for his dedication to giving back and embodiment of the Southwest Spirit.

Think Small “The littlest things we do can have a big impact. Small gestures make a huge difference to someone having a difficult time.”


Be Prepared “No matter how automated flying becomes, Southwest Pilots still do a tremendous amount of hand-flying to maintain our skill set.”


Museum Musts “I’m originally from Boston, but we have been in Tucson on and off with the military. I always recommend the Pima Air & Space Museum and the Titan Missile Museum.”
