Minnesota Trucking Association

The Minnesota Trucking Association named Browerville, MN resident, John “Jack” Pate, Jr., professional truck driver for Daggett Truck Line in Frazee, MN, the 2017 Minnesota Driver of the Year at its Driver of the Year Banquet.

Pate has been driving a truck for 19 years with Daggett Truck Line, his first and only truck driving job.  He has driven more than 2.8 million safe miles, and has been chosen Daggett’s Highway Man of the Month four times.This award is a great way to honor the best in our industry.

The accomplishment is significant: Driving safe is no easy task, especially when you take into consideration his daily driving conditions like congestion, driver distractions and Minnesota winters. Having more than 2.8 million safe driving miles is an accomplishment that few truck drivers are able to reach and we’re proud to award Jack for this outstanding achievement,” says John Hausladen, Minnesota Trucking Association president.

“From his flawless on-time performance to his personal pride and care for his tractor and dedication to customer service, Jack is the example for all striving for true truck driving professionalism,” said Scott Boyer, Director of Safety at Daggett Truck Line.  “We’re proud to have ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash‘ as one of our most senior drivers.”

As for why Pate enjoys trucking, “I love the freedom and flexibility I have, and I love to the travel.”  He enjoys spending time with his family, and enjoys the great outdoors with his dog, along with friends and family.
