LABELLE — On Wednesday, Oct. 6, longtime Hendry County Sheriff’s Office employee, Deputy Jack Willis, retired after having been employed with the agency since June of 1993.
 
 Deputy Jack Willis and his family are fith generation Floridians. His dad brought the family to Hendry County in the forties and established their Do-Me-Now Ranch in Felda where he was raised with his parents (Oscar & Ethel) and brother Carl.
 
He began his career with the HCSO as an auxiliary deputy in 1993.
 
In 1996, he became a dispatcher and remained in that position for seven years. In 2002, he became a bailiff and served in that capacity until 2018, when he began working as a process server for the Civil Division.
 
Over the last several months Willis worked at the HCSO Administrative building and served in several capacities from law enforcement work to covering lunches. 
 
"Everyone who has worked with Jack over the years and recently will tell you he is one of the kindest people you’ll ever meet and he’ll make you laugh," states the HCSO Facebook post. "His daughter Amanda Nelson has supported the Sheriff and this agency throughout the years, often bringing homemade snacks for her dad’s co-workers to enjoy. She has been a blessing to her father and the agency. The agency extends a thank you to Amanda Nelson.
 
HCSO would like to say to to Deputy Wilis, "We commend you for your professionalism throughout the years and honor you for being such a great asset to our agency."
HCSO, Willis, retires
