Bob Thompson – Owner and Master Technician
Thompson Automotive’s namesake! Bob’s affinity for cars began at the age of ten, when he was given a model car to build from a heap of parts. This first encounter with basic automotive anatomy ignited a passion in Bob that is still expressed today in the excellent service he provides for our customers.
Leveraging his training as an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) Avionics Technician in the Marines in the 1990’s, Bob got his start in automotive servicing and repair after moving back to Colorado to build and modify race engines for high-performance vehicles. After proving himself as an adept mechanic, Bob obtained his ASE Master Technician Certification – the gold standard in automotive repair.
Given his broad experience working on thousands of vehicles throughout his career, Bob is comfortable working on domestic vehicles while specializing in Japanese imports like Subaru, Toyota, and Mitsubishi.
Jaime Thompson – Owner and Service Adviser
Jaime discovered her natural knack for customer service when she began working at a small, family-owned restaurant in Littleton when she was just 15 years old. Through hard work and a love for helping people, Jaime grew beyond her position of hostess all the way through to General Manager, where she honed her multitasking and operations management skills.
After leaving the restaurant, Jaime began her career as a Service Advisor at her father’s repair shop. There, the universe would conspire to have Jaime meet Bob, and a mutual love for business, cars, and helping others was born. In 2010, this partnership became the genesis of Thompson Automotive, a comprehensive automotive service and repair shop meeting the needs of customers in the Englewood and surrounding areas.
Spencer began his love affair with cars at the age of 13 when he began helping his uncle to rebuild wrecked cars in Utah. Before working with his uncle, Spencer found he had a love for figuring out what made things work. He was frequently taking objects apart to the dismay of his mother. As a young man Spencer achieved his Eagle Scout, building 200 toy wooden cars in a humanitarian effort to provide toys to the underprivileged
Following high school Spencer moved to Arizona to join the automotive program at Universal Technical Institute where he completed Ford specialized training. A job offer brought him to Colorado where he eventually found himself working in our shop. Spencer is currently working towards achieving his ASE Certifications with the goal of becoming Master Certified in the next 5 years
A young man with a young family, Spencer is looking forward to a long and rewarding career in automotive helping others.
As a young boy Kyle’s favorite toys were his Matchbox car collection and RC racecars. He spent hours playing with the racecars, sometimes disassembling and reassembling them. Kyle also spent quality time with his father growing up, working in their garage at home on the family vehicles. These activities fostered a lifelong love and dream for the automotive industry.
Having graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA and on the Honor roll Kyle is beginning his journey to accomplish his dream of becoming an automotive engineer. He thoroughly enjoys working on vehicles and helping customers to stay safe on the road but ultimately Kyle wants to be able to design the cars of tomorrow.
We are thrilled to have Kyle working and learning with us as an apprentice and look forward to having him on the team for many long years.
