Jason R.O. Simms is the youngest guy on the crew and loves a challenge. Jason spent his time BCA (before Cowden Automotive) as a Grocery Clerk, fast food employee, U.S. Navy SeaBee, Hospital Facilities Mechanic, and biotech Facilities Manager. Several years ago Jason decided to "get lost" sold off his worldly possesions and bought a one way ticket to Vietnam. With an idea in mind (to see what's out there) and without a plan. Jason Spend 6 months travelling around S.E. Asia and a couple months in Crete. Once he ran out of money he headed home and rerealized his passion for cars. Jason counts himself lucky to have landed at Cowden Automotive to fulfill that passion. Jason started out here as Parts Getter, transitioned to Service Manager, and finally ended up under the hood taking care of your cars. In his off time Jason spends his time cycling, remodeling his house, working on his air cooled VW, and spends as much time as possible with his wife Jessie and young son Odin. "Got Odin?"
Jeovani "Jeo" comes to us with 12+ years of experience! He is an a ASE certified Master technician, and holds a Enhanced Area Smog Technician License as well as numerous certificates from automotive repair classes. He is formally educated in Automotive Technology from Skyline College. This 2 year full-time program emphasizes Toyota mechanical and diagnostic procedures. After leaving school, Jeo worked as a smog technician in San Francisco's Sunset district. Having dedicated the last 10 years to being a full time Auto Tech, he has a huge collection of old parts to practice with (he disassembles to figure out why they went bad). Jeo can diagnose any problem and is the best asset that Cowden Automotive has. When Jeo is not working on cars (which is hardly ever) he spends time with his two daughters and wife as well as his extensive network of Cousins and Aunts spread throughout the bay area. He also loves long road trips in his new Toyota Sienna.
