In our recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month for October 2021, We put our Avenues SLS spotlight on Jereth Suede. Over the years, Jereth learned the value of working part-time and ultimately full-time. His goal was to obtain and earn an income that he could be comfortable with and afford the lifestyle he enjoys. After several part-time jobs, Jereth stuck with Six Flags Magic Mountain for nearly 5 years, then moved on to Target where he has has been a part of the Target team now for almost 5 years. Jereth also enjoys working part-time at Regal/Edwards – Valencia. Jereth continues to look at career options that make the most sense for him in order to continue the lifestyle he enjoys.
