HeroWilliamJones large storyRural Carrier Associate William-Jacques Jones was recently making deliveries in Clinton, OH, when he came upon a customer in distress.

The man, who was choking on food, was attempting to walk to a neighbor’s house for assistance.

Jones rushed to the customer’s aid, performing the Heimlich maneuver on him until the obstruction was dislodged.

The man later dropped off a card for Jones at the local Post Office.

“I thank God you were there,” he wrote.

“You are one strong dude. Your fellow workers are lucky to have you. You jumped right to it and knew exactly what to do.”
