CJ Jostad has had his CDL for 30 years. He spent 29 of those years working as a lineman, before deciding he needed a change in career. He joined the Siegmund Excavation & Construction crew in May of 2018 as a dump truck and lowboy driver. CJ says he loves seeing something new every day, working outdoors, and seeing all of the wildlife in the woods.
CJ was born and raised in Salem before moving to Bend in 1993. He played football as a kid throughout high school. His family spent a lot of time camping, enjoying water sports, and taking trips to Lake Shasta. Now CJ, his wife Rachael, and her two daughters enjoy sailing on their sailboat in Newport, camping, and fishing. CJ also has two sons; Blake who is stationed in Germany and Parker who lives in Bend. They also recently just added a new dog to the family. “Vinnie” gets to go to work and ride in CJ’s truck with him every day.
