LOWELL, Mass. – TRC, a leader in engineering, environmental consulting and construction-management services, is pleased to announce that Senior Security Consultant David Jolley has been confirmed as U.S. Marshal for Eastern Tennessee by the United States Senate.

“I am honored that President Trump nominated me for this role, and I truly appreciate the confidence of Tennessee Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander in recommending me for this position,” said Jolley.  

Jolley has been with TRC since 2014. An expert in law enforcement and physical security, Jolley focuses on critical infrastructure protection and federal regulatory compliance. 

“David Jolley is extremely qualified to serve as U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District, and I am proud to congratulate him on his confirmation,” said U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.). “I was honored to recommend David to President Trump for this position, and I know East Tennesseans will be well served by his leadership and experience in law enforcement.”

“I am glad the Senate confirmed Mr. Jolley today,” said U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.). “He has had a distinguished career in law enforcement – including formerly serving as the U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Tennessee – and he will serve East Tennesseans with integrity.”

Prior to joining TRC in 2014, Jolley served as Vice President for the Tennessee Valley Authority and served as Director of the Tennessee Valley Authority Police for five years. He also served as United States Marshal for the Western District of Tennessee for seven years after being appointed by President George W. Bush in 2002.
