Yasuyo Nakamura

A big thank-you to my colleague because during one of the busiest times of the year (multiple audition weekends), I had to take bereavement leave. Yasuyo pulled both our weight and more, without a second thought. Doing so much physical work while responding to faculty repair requests, broken bench reports, and supervising contractors, is not an easy business. Yasuyo is the kind of coworker that is so attentive to Thornton’s piano needs that it elevates our team to a better

Jason Nguyen

My colleague, Jason Nguyen, is the best because he’s fought obstacles head-on and has come out victorious. While he was in the Police Academy, his dad passed away. He then left to tend to his family obligations, like a good son should do. He returned to the Police Academy to follow through on his career. Very proud to say that he graduated with flying colors. I’m very honored to be able to work side by side with Officer Jason Nguyen.

Demetrio Marquez

My boss, Demetrio Marquez, is great because he is one of a kind. He communicates to his team on a daily basis, makes sure we all know our assignments and trusts in us to follow through on our daily tasks, without having to check on us constantly. He’s always a pleasant person to talk with and ready to listen. I thank God every day for my wonderful supervisor, and I’ll let him know the same.

DPS Officers

Officers — Ward, Yzaguirre, Whittaker, Kevin Webb, Ramos-Mejia, Ontiveros — were instrumental in providing a home and food for a young couple with an 11-month-old baby girl. They were lost on campus and broke down when they saw how sincerely we cared about them and wanted to help; this is what we do on a daily basis. We strive to find answers to as many situations that come our way. We are very proud to be USC DPS Officers. Fight
