When Salina, KS, City Carrier Jimmy Nuss announced his plans to retire, his co-workers experienced a bitter-sweet moment. Though they were thrilled for Nuss’s chance to explore a new chapter in his life, they would miss his exuberant personality.

To honor his time in service at the Salina Post Office and cheer the time they shared together, employees held a memorable office celebration. While co-workers appreciated Nuss’s enthusiasm for his job, his customers are no less energetic about his service.


As an example of his commitment to customers throughout his career, Nuss related a story during his retirement party about a customer who suffered from cancer. Instead of seeking a cure, she wished to spend a few moments visiting with Nuss. He was moved by the sentiment and granted the customer her request. Later, he received a letter and poem from the customer expressing her appreciation for Nuss taking time to visit with her.
