Service Team

We would rather meet you in person but until we can, here’s a little about us, the Jackson Auto Repair.

Jackson Auto Repair is locally owned and operated,  and has provided Jackson and the West Tennessee community expert car repair since 2008 but it’s just the place where we work.  We’ve been your friends and neighbors all our lives.  We know your cars.  We want to know you.  In an industry where most seem to focus on parts, processes, and tools, our focus is on relationships.  We care for and serve you first and work on cars second.


Christian Byler

John Byler

Retirement just didn’t appeal to him so now he brings his meticulous eye for detail, strong work ethic and unwavering integrity to Jackson Auto Repair where he manages the books while riding herd on the rest of the team.


Rex McMahan

He has even built and driven his own race car as an amateur racer.  Dedicated to excellence, Rex has earned numerous ASE and GM certifications and is currently working through the Bosch Automotive Technician certification.


Frank Bohanek

He’s an qualified instructor for teaching firefighters, rescue teams and other emergency personnel how to properly deal with hybrid and electric cars. Not being electrocuted is a good thing. Although highly skilled with the wrenches, he’s equally committed to giving the best customer service possible.  Away from work Frank is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys it most with family.
