EAT Team Leader Founder & Owner
Jim was born in Glendale, Ca. and spent his childhood growing up in West Covina. He graduated from West Covina High School and attended Cal Poly University. Jim worked for Advance Speed and Marine as a manager as his first job and that led to his interest in both cars and boats (mostly fast ones). He moved to Escondido in 1975 and began working for Jacobson Tire until opening Escondido Auto Tech in 1988. His love of the water has led to a purchase of a house on the island of Roatan, which is off the coast of Honduras where he loves to scuba dive on vacations. His other passion is riding his BMW motorcycle either with friends or alone on various adventures throughout the land.
