Hi! My name is E.J. Jones and I work in the Accounting department here at Olathe Ford Lincoln. Back in 1981 my husband moved us from Alamosa, Colorado to McPherson, Kansas. Wow was that a change. I missed the mountains for a while. I worked as a secretary-bookkeeper for an appraiser in Alamosa. When we got settled in McPherson, I started looking for a job. Most of my background was in banking. There were 3 banks in McPherson at the time and they all said “Wished you had been here last week”.
Then there was an ad in the newspaper for Accounts Payable Clerk at Reimer Ford. I ignored the ad because I really did not want to work for a car dealership. But my husband told me to go anyway. I went to the interview and the rest is history. My boss, Gerald Reimer, taught me everything about Ford Automotive Accounting. I became the Office Manager about 18 months later. Thirteen years later, we moved closer to our families in Kansas City and I came to Olathe Ford in August 1994.
I have been in Ford Automotive accounting and computers since August 1981 and it has been the most rewarding career for me. I want to thank all of the individuals over the years who have taken the time and patience to teach me automotive accounting. It has been an amazing journey.
I also enjoy singing. In years past I have been a Sweet Adeline, women’s barbershop. But for now I enjoy singing in our church choir. Occasionally I enjoy reading a good book. My husband and I have been married 42 years. We have four children, three living, one is deceased. And we have seven grandchildren.
