A native of Marshall County, he was born on January 28, 1948 to the late Frank Jett and the late Helen Estes Jett. Joe worked in the trucking industry as a truck driver. He enjoyed meeting fellow truckers along the way. Joe never met a stranger. He drove in all 48 Contiguous states, and totaled over 2 ½ million miles in his career. He and his wife, Mary, raised their own family, but never turned away any child that needed something. He was a hard-core trucker, but especially he was a hard-core family man.
