Our Story

JET Motors was founded in 2009 when our founder Jeremy was laid off. This was a hard blow for him and so he got on his knees and asked God what he was supposed to do? God directed him to pursue his childhood passion and hobby of working on Minis. Out of Jeremy’s passion for the Classic Mini, he birthed what is now JET Motors. He started the company in his oversized garage in Milwaukie and worked hard to establish himself as the local Mini Guru. Slowly but surely the business took off a people from all over the Northwest started coming and utilizing the services and expertise that he had to offer. Since then the company has grown into a larger shop located in Clackamas. With the expansion of the shop Jeremy needed a staff to help him keep up with the workload and has hired on a couple of veteran mechanics and a trainee to help with the day to day wrench turning.
