• Name: Chris Janssen
• Age: 39 and holding
• City of residence: Victoria

• First job: I worked for a man out of Houston who had Beefmaster cattle and also owned boot stores. Every day, I was hauling and unloading something for him, whether it was boots or beef.
• What it taught me: Besides teaching me that I didn't want to be a truck driver, it taught me a lot of responsibility. I had to keep up with papers, be there on time and that kind of thing.
