Cheston was born June 16, 1984 in Ft Worth, Texas, to Larry Gene Damron and Mary Gayle (McKesson) Damron. He graduated with honors from Stephenville High School in 2002. As a sophomore in high school, he won the State Title with his essay in Agriculture. Cheston continued his education at Baylor University with degrees in International Business, Marketing and Spanish. While a student at Baylor and working on his degree in Spanish, he had the opportunity to study in Cuernavaca, Mexico. As a senior, he participated in the foreign exchange program in Monterrey, Mexico. After graduating from Baylor, he went to Hermosillo, Mexico where he taught English in a private school. After his return to the states, he was hired by Microsoft to teach Digital Photo Workshops on board the Holland America cruise ship which afforded him the opportunity to travel throughout Europe.
All of these wonderful experiences prepared Cheston for his dream job. He began his career with AT&T the summer of 2010 as a sales representative. Quickly within the first year of employment he was recognized a ýSummitý award winner for his exceptional sales and customer experience. This was a very proud moment that he worked so hard to obtain. He then went into retail management where he was able to share his knowledge and expertise with those striving to be the best they could be, like he was. After some time in retail management, Cheston then pursued a position within mobility sales operations, supporting people that he could easily relate to from his past experience with the company. He quickly became a manager of sales support where he grew a strong relationship with all of his team members and continued to be a mentor to all that came into contact with him. Cheston always had the ýI can help you with thatý attitude in his job, whether it be with his team members, leaders in the field, or leaders outside of his organization reaching out for guidance and help.
Cheston loved his two Thai Ridgeback dogs, Sakura and Farrah or ‘His Girls’ as he called them.
Cheston is survived by his Mother; Mary Gayle Damron; Father; Larry Gene Damron and Brother; Cody Damron. He is also survived by his Grandmother; Iva Damron, several aunts, uncles, cousins and a host of very close friends, including Tori, Lindsay, and Bryan.
