This Exelon employee seeks thrills for fun and purpose.

Jim DuBay, supplier performance manager at Cantera, is an adventurer. He has cold weather camped and trained for several years to prepare for his most recent adventure. He entered and survived the Alaskan wilderness after hiking 100 miles in 10 days and climbing Denali, which at 20,310 feet is the tallest mountain peak in North America. But before he tackled that mountain, Jim first had to complete a special rappel in Chicago.

On May 22, Jim participated in Respiratory Health Association’s charity rappel Skyline Plunge! Chicago to raise awareness and funds for clean air programs. Respiratory Health Association has a focus on fighting air pollution, a cause that Jim’s very passionate about on a personal and professional level.
“I’ve always loved outdoor activities and adventures because I enjoy the purity of nature,” Jim explains. “I was influenced by my parents and their awareness around pollution and clean air.” 

His childhood interest in environmentalism helped lead Jim to his job at Exelon, where he works to maintain and improve existing nuclear energy plants. The projects he manages result in improvements to nuclear reactors to increase their safety and reliability, and further reduce our carbon footprint.
