About "Big Mike"

Mike Jensen is a Vietnam-era US Air Force veteran, a business executive, and an entrepreneur.  He still works in  manufacturing bringing a unique perspective on product quality and reliability to small businesses. He was trained as an Automatic Tracking Radar Repairman in the service and received his training at the USAF's Keesler Technical Training Center in electronics for a year in Biloxi, Mississippi. 

After the military, Mike returned to New Jersey to begin a career in manufacturing that would span 40 plus years. The "Big Mike" moniker was started by friends of his daughter and gets thrown around every now and then. It just seemed to fit with the "small" in Small Engine service and repair...definitely used "tongue in cheek".  He has served his community, his industry, and has chaired the Philadelphia Section of the American Society for Quality, one of the largest ASQ sections in the country. He is a SCUBA diver, an avid motorcyclist, and a shooting sports activist. He has a love for "anything with a motor". 

His business philosophy has always been "do the very best you can and honor your commitments". A handshake when a deal is struck is all he needs. It signifies all that it did in days gone by, his word is his bond.
