JAY DORNHEGGEN

Account Manager
Jay@DUI-Online.com
(619)236-1203 x 311 (619) 884-6337

When Jay was 16 years old he was given the opportunity to go to Hawaii for the Total Eclipse. During his visit he received his open water certification in Kamuela. Being underwater and on the reef was a life changing experience.

“For me it is about the experience of exploration, experiencing the beauty of the oceans, and the sense of tranquility it provides. The ocean opens a whole new world for me. It has been my greatest joy exploring the world’s oceans, from the kelp forest of Southern California to the warm waters of the Caribbean and South Pacific … and I have only yet to scratch the surface.”

JESSICA HARNED

Senior Account Manager
Jessica@DUI-Online.com
(800)325-8439 (619)236-1203 x318

Jessica is DUI’s Customer Support Manager and Public Safety Specialist. Prior to joining DUI six years
ago, she was the Manager at Huron Scuba in Michigan.

Jessica began her diving career while she was at college at Humboldt State University in 1999. She
originally took diving as a PE class – something she had always wanted to try. As soon as she jumped
in the pool, she fell in love.

“Diving didn’t come easy to me in the beginning. I ‘floundered’ a lot. But I loved every minute of it and I
took every class that I could.” Jessica holds a B.S. in Wildlife Biology and Conservation and a Minor in
Scientific Diving and Underwater Research. She’s also a dive instructor.

What does Jessica love best about working at DUI? “I love how much our customers love diving and
love DUI. It’s really a joy speaking with them every day. I also love the integrity that DUI has and that we
won’t just put something out there because it’s the ‘in’ thing to do. At DUI we really believe in producing
the very best product in the world.”

Jessica also works closely with public safety dive teams through the DUI DEMOTOUR events, shows
and presentations. “I really like working with these teams and educating them about how to protect
themselves when they are doing such amazing things for their communities. It’s all about how to be
safer through exposure protection. Plus the fire trucks are pretty cool!”

When Jessica is not at DUI, helping public safety divers stay safer or out diving, she has a beautiful
daughter, Sarah and some pretty rambunctious dogs.

CAROL HEATON

Director of Military & Commercial Sales
CMHeaton@DUI-Online.com
(800)325-8439 (619)236-1203 x310

Carol joined DUI over 25 years ago after graduating from San Diego State University with a business
degree. She quickly joined the Government Sales Team and now Carol is DUI’s Director of
Government & Commercial Sales.

Carol really enjoys working with DUI’s military customers. It’s not just because her Dad is a WWII
veteran or that she married a USCG Helicopter Rescue Swimmer. It’s because of DUI’s commitment to
the customer and to the product.

“I love the fact that we are able to create and build a product from scratch that helps our brave men and
women perform their job better in their environment. What we do is unique and then we adapt the
product especially for them.

“I also love the fact that DUI provides unwavering commitment to the highest quality products and
service whether it’s a local Navy EOD Team or a friendly, foreign military halfway across the world. We
always come through for our customer no matter what.”

DUI takes great pride in servicing all types of military and government customers. We design and build
drysuits, insulation, and military-grade waterproof bags for everything as normal as a hand-held radio
and night vision goggles to 55hp outboard motors, mountain bikes and chainsaws. We will also pull out
all the stops if there is an unexpected early deployment.

“I really like working with our military and government customers. After all, who wouldn’t want to work
with these guys and gals? They are amazing!”
