The Charlie West Spotlight - May


Tech. Sgt. Jessica Mullins

The Charlie West Spotlight for May is Tech. Sgt. Jessica Mullins, the 130th Fatality Search and Recovery Team (FSRT) Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC), assigned to the 130th Force Support Squadron (FSS). 
Mullins is an Elkview, W.Va. native, and is a 2002 graduate of Herbert Hoover High School. She has served with the 130th FSS for 10 years, serving eight of those for FSRT, and four as the FSRT NCOIC.
The primary mission of FSRT is search and recovery of fatalities from the site of a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) attack to a non-scene mortuary collection point. They are a component of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) Response Force Package (CERF-P).
“Being an NCOIC on the FSRT team has given me so much drive in all that I do,” Mullins explained. “I hold the team to the highest standard so there is no room for failure.”
She also talked about how every member of the team has been a huge inspiration to her, and constantly pushes her to be the best mentor and Airman she can be.
“Tech. Sgt. Mullins is one of those troops you can only wish for,” said Chief Master Sgt. Jason Evans, 130th Force Support Squadron Superintendent, when asked why Mullins was nominated for the spotlight. “I never have to ask for anything twice, she’s very proactive and above all she’s dependable.”
Outside of her traditional guard responsibilities, Mullins is a Base Services Specialist here at the 130th.
Her responsibilities include, but are not limited to, mortuary affairs, lodging, food services, base gym facilities and more. She also serves as the 130th Honor Guard Program Manager.
Her goals are to make Master Sgt. in 2019 and to complete her Community College of the Air Force degree.
“When I think about the 130th, the West Virginia National Guard and the military in general, one word comes to mind, and it’s family,” she said. “We are all in this together.”
In addition to the guard family, the supportive network she has at home is a key component to her success.
“I am most proud of my family,” Mullins explained. “God has blessed me with such a wonderful, supportive family and I couldn’t be more proud to have them in my life.”
In her free time, she enjoys hiking, camping and working out, as well as spending time with her wife, Kalia.
“Marrying my best friend was the best day of my life,” said Mullins.
