Keynote Speakers

C. Mark KellyCaptain Mark Kelly, USN (Ret.)

JETC kicks-off with a General Session Luncheon featuring retired Navy Captain and former NASA
Astronaut Mark Kelly, Commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour and Space Shuttle Discovery.

An experienced aviator and retired US Navy Captain, Kelly began his career as an astronaut in 1996. During his illustrious career with NASA, he spent more than 50 days in space and commanded both the Space Shuttle Endeavour, including its final flight in May 2011, and Space Shuttle Discovery, and is one of only two individuals who have visited the International Space Station on four different occasions.

An American hero who exemplifies effective leadership and courage under pressure, Kelly offers audiences insights drawn from his various and extensive experiences, from leading teams in some of the most dynamic environments imaginable, to the thrill of spaceflight and making history, to the importance of commitment to career and family, in order to truly define and achieve success. 

Dan McNichol

Hit play to hear Dan McNichol's interview podcast

Wednesday morning at JETC will feature best-selling writer and award-winning journalist Dan McNichol, author of several books, including The Roads that Built America, The Big Dig, and Paving the Way: Asphalt in America. McNichol, a former White House Appointee who served the President on transportation and Infrastructure policies, recently completed a year long national media tour in a 1949 Hudson that advocated for the rebuilding of the nation’s vital civic systems with the tag: “America’s infrastructure is as old, rusty and energy defunct as this original Detroit lead-sled.” His 33-state, 12,000-mile circumnavigation of the United States culminated in a successful statewide ballot initiative that now provides nearly $2 billion of new funding for Texas’s transportation projects as part of the Lone Star State’s annual budget.

The American Society of Civil Engineers named McNichol one of nation’s outstanding journalists in 2014 and previously in 2003. Engaging and passionate about the nation’s infrastructure, he also is the recipient of the Robert F. Boger Award for outstanding construction writing for his chronicling of the catastrophic I-35W bridge collapse.

McNichol’s trusty Hudson will be on site at JETC in the Exhibit Hall—so make sure to come by for an up-close look!
