My expertise is in automotive and advanced vehicle technology systems. I have an extensive background in repairing complex vehicle mechanical and electro-mechanical systems. In addition, I have extensive experience in fiber-optics, testing and troubleshooting electrical and hybrid electrical components, reading and interpreting schematics and blueprints, and Vehicle Condition analysis. I am well versed in repair facility management including project scheduling, employee management, and repair procedure documentation.
My niche is in applying electrical theory to real-world practical applications to quickly identify, analyze, and provide solutions to electrical and mechanical systems. Using my strong technical background and experience to develop new and creative solutions to complex problems, I have received many awards for outstanding achievement and innovative success.
I have an Associates of Occupational Studies Degree from Universal Technical Institute where I concentrated on Automotive/Truck and Industrial Technology. I received Certified Diagnostic credentials from the BMW STEP program, and obtained BMW master status in 2005.
I used to work with Jon on the SHRP2 Project. Jon was a great asset to our team; his extensive knowledge of automotive electrical and mechanical components is unparalleled, and his ability to troubleshoot and diagnose vehicles is of the best I've seen. His focus and drive for quality is admirable, and I feel fortunate to be his friend and fellow employee. I've known Jon for over 8 years and I strongly recommend him as an automotive technician. -Brian Keith Perkins (Advance Vehicle Research Installer at Westat)
Jon is well-versed with BMWs and goes over and beyond to make sure his customers are satisfied, often meaning that for much of his time he does not charge the customer. He is also someone that can be trusted – hard to say for many auto mechanics. As a result, I have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone. If my BMW has any issues, he's the first guy I still call, after 2 years of working with him. -Ben George (Software Developer at SAS Institute)
I had the pleasure of meeting Jon a few weeks ago. After reading his profile on linkedin and the accompanying recommendations I decided to hire Jon to make some repairs on my Mercedes. Needless to say, Jon's technical knowledge, very warm personality, and his skill set turned out to be much better than advertised.From the moment we discussed my mechanical problems I knew that he was a person whom I could trust to make the necessary repairs. Jon is very thorough, kept me informed of the progress and completed all of the task on time. Everyone knows that finding a very knowledgeable automotive technician who doesn't over charge can be a very difficult task. I will certainly be calling on Jon for any future repairs. In addition, Jon is very personable and has no difficulty in explaining the situation in terms that can easily be understood by anyone. Therefore, I highly recommend him to anyone who may be in need of automotive mechanical services. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. -John Byrd (IT Manager With Extraordinary People Management Skills)
John is now our BMW Technician of choice to keep our 2002 BMW 325i on the road. I recommend his work for timeliness, quality and value. -Mark Lovegrove (Global Center of Excellence Lead: Project Management, Real Estate & Facilities Management at Cisco Systems)
My dealings with Jon have been quite a learning experience. He has repaired my BMW 528i on a couple of occasions. He explained what repairs were being made and why. Jon's enthusiasm about BMW's cannot be questioned. Jon charges reasonable prices as well. I have emailed Jon to ask a question about the car and he has been very prompt in getting the information to me that I've requested. If you want to hire a BMW Technician who is honest, knowledgeable and loves what he does, then you owe it to yourself to contact Jon. He IS the real deal. -Dennis B Washington (Sales Professional at Southern States Hyundai)
