1. I am having problems with the following code getting an incorrect syntax error when I try to add the employee name on the subject line of the email.

2.  After fixing the syntax error, I would like to create a temporary table and iterate through the table for result sets of assets for each employee then distinct email addresses.
DECLARE @TalentMgrEmail varchar (255),
        @FunctionalMgrEmail varchar (255),
        @AssetMgrEmail varchar (255),
        @EmployeeID varchar (50),
        @EmployeeName varchar (50),
        @LastworkDate datetime,
        @Job varchar (6),
        @WBS varchar (5),
        @AssetTag varchar (50),
        @AssetModelName varchar (128)

/* Cursor - looping through specified CasualEmployee Database Records */

/*Statement to fill cursor with data */
SELECT [CEmpDetails].[EmployeeID],
       [Job]+ '-' +[WBS],
  FROM [CDB].[dbo].[CEmpDetails] Inner Join
       [CEmpAssets] on [CEmpDetails].EmployeeID = [CEmpAssets].EmployeeID

   /* Open the cursor and fill it with the first set of values */
OPEN Emails

FETCH NEXT FROM Emails into @TalentMgrEmail, @FunctionalMgrEmail, @AssetMgrEmail, @EmployeeID, @EmployeeName,
                            @LastworkDate,  @Job, @WBS, @AssetTag, @AssetModelName

/*Prepare and send email */
     EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
       @profile_name = 'MyProfileName',
       @recpients = @TalentMgrEmail,
       @copy_recipients = @AssetMgrEmail, 
       @subject = 'Notification: blah blah ' + @EmployeeName + ':',
       @body = 'Records indicate blah blah blah blah blah:
                -- is something else here
                -- something else here
                -- but has stuff assigned
                Employee ID:  ' + @EmployeeID +
                'Employee Name:  ' + @EmployeeName +
                'Last Work Date:  ' + @LastworkDate +
                'Last Work Job-WBS:  ' + @Job + '-' + @WBS +
                'Manager: please coordinate with blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah:
                + @AssetTag + '     ' + @AssetModelName ;
      FETCH NEXT FROM Emails INTO @TalentMgrEmail, @FunctionalMgrEmail, @AssetMgrEmail, @EmployeeID, @EmployeeName,
                            @LastworkDate,  @Job, @WBS, @AssetTag, @AssetModelName

      CLOSE Emails
