Honoring Frontline Heroes…

The Elizabethton STAR is honored to recognize those who have been at the forefront of the COVID-19 pandemic.

They are not only heroes to their families but to all those whose lives they have touched during this trying time.

Today’s Frontline Hero is Jimmy Shelton. Shelton is a CST for Rotech Respiratory Medical Equipment. He was nominated for recognition by his sister, Lisa Buck.

“Jimmy works on the front lines delivering oxygen respiratory and medical equipment and setting the equipment up in covid patients homes,” said Lisa. “He has delivered food to COVID patients, prayed with and for them.

“He is a wonderful person and try’s to help everyone. He is an angel in my book as a wonderful brother and great husband.”

Shelton is married to Tanty and they have a five-year-old daughter Annlesa. They also have a furbaby named Dougie.

Thank you Jimmy Shelton for all you do!

Please submit your Frontline Hero to ivan.sanders@elizabethton.com or drop by the STAR office during normal business hours.
