The Jenks Chamber of Commerce named Ken Hargrove, co-owner of Hargrove-Marker Funeral & Cremation Service, Ambassador of the Quarter for the period ending Sept. 30.

Ambassadors are the Chamber’s volunteers who attend ribbon cuttings and assist with Chamber programs. Ambassadors are awarded points for their service.

The top point-getter is named Ambassador of the Quarter. Hargrove led in first, with Adam Abel, mortgage lender at Arvest; Shawna Hughes, mortgage loan officer at Tulsa Federal Credit Union; and Mitchell Sims, president of Nesso Companies and founder of PigTracks, tied for runner up.

Hargrove is a lifelong resident of Jenks. He and wife, D’Ann, are Jenks High School graduates and have two sons, Hank and Wyatt.

Hargrove is currently attending funeral service classes at the University of Central Oklahoma. He is also experienced as a physical therapist, home builder, resident handyman, deacon at First Baptist Church of Jenks and is an active member of the Jenks Kiwanis Club.

His passion is to minister to families who have lost a loved one and to those who want to plan ahead for Funeral Services. Hargrove-Marker was honored last year as the 2018 Jenks Chamber New Business of the Year. Hargrove is also a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors.

“It is always humbling to be recognized for contribution and service to your community,” said Hargrove.President and CEO of the Jenks Chamber Josh Driskell is appreciative to have Hargrove on board as a Chamber ambassador.

“Ken is dependable and is generous with his time invested in supporting the Jenks community,” Driskell said. “Ken is a great example of what it means to be a community leader, and we appreciate his volunteer service with the Chamber.”

The Jenks Chamber congratulates Hargrove for his accomplishment and thanks him, as well as all Ambassadors, for their volunteer service.
