Shop Foreman and Head Technician

The story goes that Jim got his start in the automotive industry by push-starting his dad’s ’47 Ford Coupe, and it was all downhill from there, literally. Back then, Jim enjoyed working on cars in his spare time, but his hobby eventually became a career. Before joining our team at CSE Automotive, Jim worked at several auto dealerships, gaining experience and earning his ASE certification. He has now been the head tech at CSE since 2000. Jim spends his leisure time with his four children when he is not expertly repairing cars at CSE. And while his main interest has always been hot rods—of which he’s worked on many—he also enjoys playing the saxophone, a talent dating back to his time in a local rock band.

She is also our Human Resources person; she shows her compassion for her coworkers daily. Her family is a fundamental part of her life, with 3 sons, 8 grandchildren and a large extended family.

He spent many years racing Quads, and enjoying Auto Shows, where he was a Judge. Andy has been a member of the Antique Automobile Club of America since the early 1990’s. We have had the pleasure of having Andy at our shop since 2019.
