If you’ve ever visited the Unisource Energy Services office in Show Low, you might have seen something a little unusual: Matt and Levi Jeffs, a father-and-son duo working side-by-side.

Matt Jeffs has been a fixture in the Show Low office for more than three decades. Now a Service Technician, he got his start as a meter reader in October 1989. “As things progressed, it became a career,” he said.

After college, Levi Jeffs longed to return to his hometown. When his father told him Unisource was hiring a Utility Technician in Show Low, Levi jumped at the opportunity. He’s never looked back. “I thought Unisource would be a great company and I knew I could provide for my family and provide service to my community,” Levi said.

Phillip Rose, District Manager in the Show Low office, said the two seamlessly complement one another.

“Matt has the knowledge on the gas side, and he is sharing that with his son.  Levi, on the other hand, has computer-based knowledge he is sharing with his father,” Rose said. “They’re training each other on the task at hand in different ways. It’s beneficial because now I will have two individuals able to conduct the work.”

The two are close outside of the office as well. Levi and his family visit for Sunday dinner each week. “I live about two minutes from my dad, who lives in the neighborhood I grew up in,” Levi said. “It’s really great to come in and learn from someone I respect who is experienced and knowledgeable. I’m willing to soak up that wisdom.”

When asked if there might one day be a third generation of Jeffs in the Show Low office, both smile broadly. “I would be very, very happy if there was a third generation here,” Levi said, “I was one of five and saw it was a good career, a good company. I would be over the moon.”

Matt said he’s glad his son has joined him. “You don’t grow up as a kid dreaming to work at the gas company, but it’s incredibly interesting, with so many things to learn and do. I’m happy that Levi is having that experience as well.”
