Meet Jim Speer | Owner of Jim’s Quick Lube in Warner Robins
About Jim Speer
I was born in Pittsburgh, PA on May 31, 1960 with the name James Totino. My mother tells of a big family fight naming me. My natural father Rocky wanted, of course, to name me “The Rock”, but my mother – God bless her – wouldn’t hear of it!
I was fortunate enough to have two grandfathers named James, so little Jimmy it was! My parents divorced when I was about seven. As a result, my mother married Robert Speer, my stepfather, who adopted me. I now feel blessed to have had two Dads. We moved often growing up living in Sunnyvale, CA; San Antonino, TX; Encinitas, CA; and Thousand Oaks, CA where I graduated High school. After high school, I enlisted in the Army and served in Germany as a Military Policeman (MP). After my enlistment, I attended college and earned a bachelor degree in Marketing from the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
My employment history includes working as an oil salesman and a fulfillment manager for a magazine publisher. I have started and ran three quick lubes for my stepfather, as well as, regional manager for a national chain of quick lubes. Now – with God’s help – I own my own quick lube … Jim’s Quick Lube. They say my blood type is a “synthetic blend of Saved And Excited (SAE) 10W-30 and 5W-50!”
I’m married to Rebecca and consider her and my stepchildren to be the highlights of my life!
God Is Good!
