DON JACKSON ENTERPRISES
Independent Porsche Repair
Don Jackson Sr. started this business more than 37 years ago. He shared his vast knowledge of not only Porsches but all cars & motorcycles with us, his sons. If it had a motor He had something to say about it or a story to share. He had a true passion for all cars that he passed on to us.
Don Jackson was born in Oklahoma & raised in Texas where he grew up working on motorcycles & American cars at his dad's shop. His first job was working at a dealership for Volkswagen & other foreign cars. He had a few other jobs throughout Texas as well as starting his own business. He married his lovely wife Gail while in Texas. They eventually moved to California so he could work for Shelby building Cobras. California is where he also first started working on Porsches at a dealership in Riverside. He did some racing & worked on pit crew for SCCA racing while in Texas & California. It wasn't until around 1971 that we all moved from LA, where he worked for Johnson Bozzani, to help start up a dealership here in Phoenix called Johnson Bozzani Porsche/Audi. In 74' he decided he wanted to work for himself. He started out by renting a stall, then within a year he officially started "Don Jackson Enterprises" at it's current location.
We each started working for him as soon as we were old enough and now that he is sadly no longer with us we run the business with the honesty, integrity & know-how that Dad taught us.
This business isn't just a paycheck to us it is part of our Dad's legacy & we strive to run this business in a way that would make him proud.
Don with his boys, John & DJ
