grew up at Able Auto and learned a great deal of what he knows
about the industry and running a small business from his father,
Roy Jordan. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical
Engineering with a minor in Mathematics from Oklahoma State
University, Jeff spent four years as a design engineer for Caterpillar,
Inc. A love of water and the desire to raise his son, Ethan,
near family brought Jeff and his wife, Angela, back to the east
coast in 2004. They added to the family in 2006 with a son,
Tyler. Jeff would be the first to admit that it was an easy
decision, but one of the most challenging of his life. To keep
up with trends and the ever-changing automotive industry, Jeff
and his staff regularly attend automotive classes and conventions.
He is active in many automotive forums and technical sites.
Jeff enjoys fishing, RC Car racing, kayaking, and spending time
with his family.
