JACKSON, Wyo. — Trish Herasme moved to town three years ago on a transfer from the US Postal Service. She found housing in Idaho, but worked at both the main office and downtown office in Jackson.
After three years serving the Jackson community, she retired this past Thursday. She reached out to Buckrail as a way to thank her relatively new community for its kindness.
“I just want to express what an amazing honor and privilege it was/is to live in the Tetons and to serve all of you,” Herasme wrote.
“I have experienced extreme generosity and kindness from the good people of Jackson (Victor and Driggs also. Can’t forget my Idaho peeps!).”
One of her most memorable moments, Herasme wrote, was talking to an older woman who has lived in Jackson for a long time. Herasme remarked on all the snow “you guys” get here.
“She said, ‘you guys? You are one of us now.’ That touched my heart deeply.”
Herasme told Buckrail she did not have time to thank everyone — because who could — but wanted to reach as many people as possible and offer her gratitude.
“Thank you all for making a sometimes difficult job bearable,” she wrote. “I enjoyed the laughter and the conversations we had. We are all family in one way or another.”
She’ll be sticking around Jackson for the foreseeable future and hopes to see her beloved community out and about.
“God bless you again and thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
