MEET OUR TEAM

Jason Sumner

Co-Owner & Director

Jason first started his own business washing cars as a 9 year old boy in the 70's. At the age of 12 he wasn't doing jigsaws or playing with toys like many young children his age, he was taking cars apart in his fathers garage and reading car maintenance books. When he reached the age of 16 he took on an apprenticeship with a Honda main dealer, whos owner had Jaguars. Jason found he had a real talent for bodywork whilst helping his employer restore one of his Jaguars and has now spent 30 of his 33 years in the industry doing restoration and repairs. He is an all round mechanic but transforms into an artist when he steps into the booth.

 

Jacquie Sumner

Operations manager

Jacquie first found her love for cars  when she rebuilt a mini cooper complete with red fur interior at the age of 15 with her older brother. She was brought up in the transport industry and became general manager of a large haulage company. Her 1st car was a MK11 Jaguar named Monty. Until cars got too high tech for her you could often find her changing brakes, clutches and starter motors, mucking right in with the boys. When Jason set up his own business Jacquie was the ideal candidate for operations manager, as she knows her cars and also her accounts.

Stephen Cooper

Director

Stephen has been fleet manager for Jenner contractors for over 10 years, through this link he was carefully selected to join the board of Directors at JSN Automotive Ltd. Whilst Stephen's main background is in IT he has shown a real hands on attitude with the opening of JSN even learning about how the paint systems work. Steve is a key member of the local community, always going above and beyond in any way he can. Having worked for Jenner Contractors for over 25 years Steve is keen to take on this new role with JSN alongside his roles at Jenners.
