The J-Ball Story – The ECM Tuning Specialists
Heavy Duty Diesel Truck Parts Specialists for over 45 years
Don has been associated with the trucking industry since 1973 when he was employed by Pacific Diesel Brake (now PACBRAKE) of Vancouver, BC Canada as the outside parts representative. From 1988 to 1998 Don was employed with various truck dealerships and air brake wholesalers. In late 1998 Don started his own used diesel core business selling used truck and diesel engine components to rebuilders. His late son Jeremy worked with Don from 1998 to 2004. Moving to Mission, BC, J-Ball Electronics was founded. Don’s idea was to recondition and reprogram electronic control modules ECMs.
The Jenners now reside and work in Vernon, BC where the business has grown with sales across North America and around the world.
Lynne escaped the cold northern Alberta winters and headed to the sunny Okanagan to join J-Ball in February 2015. She brings considerable business knowledge and accounting skills along with a definite love for our four legged furry staff. Lynne keeps everyone in line and makes sure the paycheques are ready on time (as long as someone brings chocolate).
North American Sales Manager
Michael comes to J-Ball Electronics with skills learned from 2 decades of working in the telecommunications field. He is always busy with tasks including providing technical support, taking care of sales and managing the outside sales representatives. Michael is an avid motorcycle rider and outdoor enthusiast.
Born and raised in a tiny, close-knit farming community not far from where J-Ball Electronics is based, he decided to go out into the world after graduating high-school and went to college in Toronto. Professionally trained in video game design and development (programming, sound-design, 3D modeling, etc.) and nicknamed ‘Mr. President’ in college due to his legislative eloquence in regular conversation and a quirk of not swearing in public, he graduated and returned home to look for opportunities in the game design industry. However, he was introduced to J-Ball by a friend of the owner and found that they were looking for workers skilled in working on software and he has been here ever since.
