James Yacup is a hard working highly persistent individual that is motivated to do a great job from the West Georgia area. He graduated from The University of Alabama in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and decided to pursue a Master’s Degree at the University of West Georgia in Criminology. While working towards his master’s degree he was offered a job working for the state of Georgia as a State Officer. This is where he obtained his interest in commercial motor vehicles and the safety involved with managing companies. James looks forward to serving as an assistant treasurer for YPofATL because he is very conscientious with money and has been consulted on how to cut frivolous spending. James enjoys dollar beers on Thursday night trivia with the crew, hitting the links for some mulligan golf, and wetting a line. He also has been known to cheer on the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Atlanta Falcons.
