CJ works with a staff of 18 and completes a variety of tasks each day. Co‐workers can find CJ out and about working on or overseeing sign installation and maintenance, landscape installation and repair, shrub planting, and a variety of painting and carpentry work. He most enjoys tasks involving Bobcat operation. Although he enjoys being outside, Brown found the winter of 2009, which had some of the worst weather of the past several years, a big challenge. "CJ stepped up to work the record amount of snowfall Omaha received during the month of December 2009", one co‐worker said. "The bitter cold temperatures did not stop CJ from getting the job done of coordinating the entire team in the snow removal process. He worked many nights, weekends and holidays to oversee the removal of mountains of snow."
