Lidsky’s Light Shines

“Worse than being blind is having sight, but no vision.”

Just 37 years old and blind from a rare degenerative disease of the retina, called retinitis pigmentosa, Issac Lidsky shared his thoughts on the famous Helen Keller quote, as well as his own insight, experience and inspiration during his Jacksonville appearance on May 22.

Lidsky spoke to a full crowd at Intuition Ale Works about his memories on television and his New York Times Bestseller, “Eyes Wide Open”. All those in attendance received a copy of the book and Lidsky held a book signing at the end of the event. If you missed it, you can listen to Lidsky’s appearance on First Coast Connect from earlier in the week; or check out his TED talk. To get your own copy of “Eyes Wide Open” email your request to Joy Bardin.

JAX Refrigeration was proud to have helped host the best-selling author and honored to have heard his inspirational story.

JAX Refrigeration, through our nonprofit foundation, JAXCares, was the official beverage cart sponsor for the Sam Kouvaris Golf Tournament, held May 1. The tournament was to benefit Dreams Come True.

JAX Refrigeration has been a long-time supporter of Dreams Come True and will again be participating in the Annual Dream Day and Parade coming up on June 10.

Divisional Updates

Industrial Refrigeration | Commercial HVAC| JAX Refrigeration | Logo

At JAX Refrigeration, our top priority is our responsiveness to customer calls and requests. When it comes to providing solutions for you, we strive to meet your scheduling needs.


JAX Mechanical is always looking for ways to develop our people, our products and our systems. This month, we are proud to have trained all of our service staff on a newly-developed service management software that will allow our techs in the field to remain paperless and obtain all of the real-time information necessary to better (and faster) serve our clients. This system will allow them to focus on the most important task at hand…YOU, our client, and fixing the problem you are currently facing.


As you clean strainers and filters this summer, take a set of your P&IDs and check them against the installation. The added minutes now will save precious time in an emergency.



A roofing tip from your friends at JAX Cool: Keep the roof surface clean at drain areas to avoid clogging. Good roofing practice dictates that water should drain from the roof and that ponded water should evaporate within 48-72 hours after a rainfall.

Kitchen hood grease filters should be cleaned on a regular basis. Watch the filter removal tool demonstration video. We can provide your restaurant with this safe and efficient filter change-out tool. Call (352) 544-1100.
