Meet the Craftsmen: Jamie Freeman

 

Here at Comfort Option, our work requires a team and we simply couldn't do what we do were it not for our dedicated employees. Each member has their own craft and the skill and hard work that they bring is integral to the to the process of creating your perfect mattress or pillow. 

For the second installment of our Meet the Craftsman series, we would like to introduce you to Jamie Freeman. As our CNC Operator, he handles cutting the various custom foam layers that make up a Comfort Option mattress and, day in and day out, he does so with a smile. He knows our products, from base to topper, and if you are sleeping better on one of our mattresses, you probably have him to thank. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Jamie Freeman.

 Meet Jamie Freeman, the Saw Lead and CNC Operator here at Comfort Option. 
 
 
 
The best part of my job is probably working the CNC machine. I like operating all the other saws, too, but the CNC is more challenging. More interesting.
— Jamie Freeman, Saw Lead

Where are you from?

Indianapolis, Indiana.

When did you start working here?

August, 2013.

What brought you to Comfort Option/Foamcraft?

I heard of it through a friend of mine, so I went through a temp service and they sent me here.

What is your role?

I am the CNC Operator in the Saw Department.

And that’s the machine that runs all the specialty cutting, right?

Yeah, all the complicated shapes and patterns.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to ride motorcycles, work out – always being at the gym lifting weights. I write a little bit.

What do you write?

Poetry.

If you could have one superpower, what would you have and why?

To fly. I could get anywhere fast.

If you could learn one new skill, what would it be?

Engineering. Like making engines for airplanes.

Very cool. That would be too much math for me personally.

Yeah, me too! But I still think it would be interesting to learn.

What do you like best about your work?

The best part of my job is probably working the CNC machine. I like operating all the other saws, too, but the CNC is more challenging. More interesting.
