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.
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.
Jeremiah is an avid gamer and a self described recluse, but is very personable when you get to know him, despite being a bit frank sometimes.
