About J and J Automotive

Get to Know Your Local Auto Repair Company

My passion for working on cars started at a young age as I would regularly watch my father work on cars in our driveway. During high school, I enrolled in the automotive, welding, and wood shop classes. My teacher encouraged me to continue working in the automotive industry after graduation as he felt that I had a knack for it.

Following his advice, I took automotive repair and maintenance jobs while studying Automotive Technology at Butte College. After finishing the automotive program with certifications, I began working at James Thomas Volvo (also known as JT Volvo) in January of 2004. Here, I worked directly under the owner James Thomas and learned a variety of valuable skills. I have a depth of knowledge for not just Volvo and Subaru but most other foregin nd domestic vehicles.

During my 12th year of employment with the company, James suddenly passed away and an opportunity to purchase the business was presented to me. I purchased the business with the hopes of carrying on James' memory as well as carving my own path in the automotive industry.

Today, I am the proud owner/operator of J & J Automotive. We're here to keep you safe on the road by performing quality auto repair and maintenance on your vehicle.
