Seaman Jasmine Hoeffner, a 2015 Davie County High School graduate and Easley native, is serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the guided-missile destroyer, USS O’Kane. Hoeffner is a gas turbine systems technician aboard the forward-deployed Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer operating out of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. “I am basically a mechanic for engines,” said Hoeffner, whose job involves the maintenance and operation of four LM-2500 gas turbine engines. “Figuring out how things work is interesting to me.” USS O’Kane, measures approximately 500 feet and is powered by four gas turbines that allow the destroyer to achieve more than 30 mph in open seas.
