Service Spotlight - TJ

Tahjarrel Fields (TJ) is a shift leader at Lincoln Wendy’s in Evansville. He was working one evening when a guest started screaming in the lobby. TJ ran from behind the counter and found the guest unresponsive and not breathing. TJ immediately took action and started administering CPR on the guest. First responders arrived on the scene and together they were able to help save a life. TJ and the paramedics were honored by the city of Evansville for their bravery. We want to recognize TJ for this heroic act of service.
