Thompson’s Team

Our Team

Bob Thompson – Owner & Master Technician

Bob’s passion for cars began well before his training. He was given a model car to build at the age of 10, and ever since then he has been intrigued with the inner workings of automobiles.

His professional training began in the Marines in 1993 as an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) Technician in Avionics. His military training with electrical systems gave Bob the knowledge and experience to detect and repair electrical issues of most vehicles. After the military, Bob returned home to Colorado and began his Automotive Technician career. He started working in the performance industry, modifying and building race engines, before making his way to general automotive repair and maintenance, where he earned his ASE Master Technician Certification.

Today Bob is a Specialist of Japanese Imported Vehicles and also has the experience to repair and maintain Domestic vehicles as well.

Jaime Thompson – Owner & Service Adviser

Jaime is an absolute natural when it comes to customer service! She began working at Piccolo’s, a family restaurant in Littleton, when she just 15 years old and quickly knew she was meant to work with people and could easily multitask. Jaime’s dedication to her job and customers continued for next 15 years. A born leader, she worked her way up from hostess to general manager.

After leaving the restaurant, she began her career as a Service Advisor at her dad’s repair shop that he started in 1983 and ran until selling it 1995. It was there that Bob and Jaime first met. Not only did they instantly connect, they also felt that their chemistry and knowledge would lead to a very successful business. And so was born Thompson Automotive in September 2010.

Chris Hoffman – Automotive Technician

Like Bob, Chris knew at a young age that he wanted to work on cars. During his senior year of high school, Chris enrolled in an Intro to Automotive course at Front Range Community College. The course solidified what he already knew, that he would be an Automotive Technician. Shortly after graduation he enrolled at Lincoln Technical Institute in Denver. Through his training, Chris developed the skill and precision it takes to be a perfect addition to Thompson Automotive joining the family in April 2012.

Following his apprenticeship, Chris earned his ASE Certification in September 2015 and continues to be a valued and loved employee!
