Happy Retirement Lu Jessen! (Bloomfield Location) Lu Jessen began employment with Farmers Pride in 1998.

Lu and her husband, Gary, are looking forward to spending a lot of time traveling… First up, a trip to Italy to visit their daughter, Sheila, and her spouse (who is in the service) and their 2 young children.
