TSgt John Cheatham
My name is TSgt John Cheatham. I am the Air Force Recruiter in Jefferson City, MO. I am originally from Arlington, TX and happy to be somewhere with more than two seasons. I enjoy building computers, playing video games, or tabletop games with my wife and our three kids. I joined the Air Force in 2009 after graduating from High School. Prior to being selected as a recruiter I worked as a Satellite Communications technician assigned to missions supporting Missile Defense and Intel. I have enjoyed my Air Force journey while striving to become the best version of myself to provide a happy and stable life for my family. The Air Force has taught me that we never stop learning and developing, everyday provides new opportunities for success.
