JerVay Rodgers, Washington, DC

Acting Assistant Inspector in Charge JerVay Rodgers

A lunch break recently took a dramatic turn for Acting Assistant Inspector in Charge JerVay Rodgers, who works with the Postal Inspection Service’s Communications, Governance and Strategy Group in Washington, DC.

Rodgers was in a food court near USPS headquarters at L’Enfant Plaza when she heard someone scream.

She sprang into action and soon discovered that a girl was choking.

Rodgers, who has served as a CPR trainer for the Inspection Service, performed the Heimlich maneuver on the girl until the obstructing food item was dislodged.

“While others stood by watching, JerVay’s quick response saved the girl’s life,” said the group’s leader, Inspector in Charge Peter Rendina.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
