Meet the J-Band Team: Tim Zahrn

Title: Specialty Products Area Manager
Location: Indianapolis, IN

How long have you worked with J-Band?

I started in March 1, 2017, so just over 4  years.

What’s your favorite part about working with J-Band?

It is a product that provides a proven solution to an issue that plagues most HMA pavements – the failure of longitudinal construction joint before the rest of the mat.

What goals do you have for J-Band?

I hope to increase awareness and use so that more agencies realize the value that it brings to their HMA pavements.

What makes the J-Band product so unique?

It is a “new” product with almost a 20 year history.

What are some of your hobbies outside of work?

I enjoy spending time and traveling with my family, and in particular our granddaughters. Working in the yard, an occasional round of golf and reading.

Describe your family.

My wife Denise and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary this year. We moved to Indiana 4 years ago to get closer to our daughter and her family. Our son still lives in eastern Illinois and will be starting a family soon, so it looks like we will be making more return trips to our home state!

What is a fun fact about you that most people don’t know?

I was the original Dunker Duck – a mascot for the basketball team at Lake Land College.
