It’s safe to say that RJ Stevenson’s interest in cars came naturally. His father worked for General Motors
as an electrical engineer, while his grandparents and uncles also worked for GM
It’s not surprising that the Stevenson family get-togethers involved talking about cars, and sparked RJ’s interest in cars when he was only 4-years-old. A Detroit
native, he started taking auto shop classes at Romeo High School
in his sophomore year and has never looked back. The path that led RJ to Bill Marsh Buick GMC
and involved a lot of stops along the way – all of them car-related. He received a job offer from a local auto shop after high school that “he couldn’t pass up,” and worked there while taking night classes at Macomb Community College
His obvious talent for working on cars, as well as the wealth of knowledge he accumulated while growing up, helped him to not only earn his Associates Degree from Macomb CC
, but also landed him an apprenticeship/internship at the proving grounds near his home. From there, RJ enrolled in the automotive program at Ferris State
(in 2008), went to work for Ford
as a service engineer, a role in which he solved problems that dealers couldn’t otherwise fix, and ultimately ended up at Chrysler
RJ worked as a Chrysler
Development Engineer in their fuel systems group and helped design new fuel system components before accepting an offer to work for a local supplier. RJ and his wife made their way to Traverse City
when she received a job offer at Munson
hospital. RJ was more than willing to leave an office job he didn’t enjoy and needed only two years to finish a senior Master Technician
Today, RJ practices his trade as a technician at Bill Marsh Ford Kalkaska
and plans to do so until “his body won’t let him.” We hope that’s not for a long time!
