Jason Broeker tells us, “Ranken provided practical automotive knowledge to use as foundation to start my career. Upon program completion, I was ready to enter my field and engage.” Jason graduated in November of 1999 with an associate degree in Automotive Maintenance Technology. He is currently the Service Manager for Lou Fusz Subaru. Jason also worked an internship at Lou Fusz Dodge while attending Ranken. Internships are wonderful opportunities to demonstrate your talent and knowledge of the industry and establish solid relationships with prospective employers. Jason says his favorite memories during his time at Ranken were the days spent in line class, working in the shop environment with his peers.
Nathan Pitchford, General Manager at Lou Fusz Subaru, explains “Jason came to us ready, prepared to work, and added immediate value to our team. His work ethic and attention to detail stood out right away. Jason has gone through several promotions at our dealership, and we are now proud to have him as our Service Manager. Jason gets recognition from his coworkers and clients regularly. He has helped improve our dealership’s reputation in the community and we are lucky to have him on our team.”
Jason’s cousin, Michael Davenport graduated from Ranken’s Automotive Maintenance Technology program in 1995. His uncle, Gerald Davenport, graduated in June 1970 from the Automotive Maintenance and Repair program and taught for Ranken several years afterward. Another of Jason’s uncles, Allen Davenport, also taught Automotive Maintenance for Ranken for nearly 40 years.
