Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the leading provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for the business aviation industry, has announced the addition of several new team members that will contribute to its customer centric culture and support future growth.

As economic challenges continue to linger throughout the industry, JSSI’s maintenance programs are more important than ever and provide business aircraft owners and operators with valuable budget stability and predictability. JSSI’s team of Technical Advisors, Customer Relationship Managers and Contracts Specialists all work together as advocates for the customer to enhance the value of JSSI hourly cost maintenance programs, with the goal of exceeding customer expectations.

“The outstanding individuals we have recently added to our JSSI team are all essential components to our customers’ continued satisfaction,” commented Susan K. Marr, Co-President for JSSI. “Whether they go that extra mile to locate a needed part or take a call at 2 AM on a Saturday morning from a customer that is stuck on the ground with an AOG, our number one focus at JSSI is customer service and satisfaction, and that is one key way we differentiate ourselves,” added Marr.

Three new Technical Advisors, Gustavo Perez, Athena Rogers, and Andrew Gilland have joined the JSSI technical team. They bring decades of aviation maintenance experience to JSSI from numerous engine and airframe manufacturers. Gustavo Perez has over ten years’ experience in the aviation industry, most recently as a Customer Support Project Analyst at Bombardier Aerospace.  He also served as a Learjet Aircraft Mechanic at Bombardier.  Gustavo is fluent in Spanish and will be based in Florida where he will provide technical support for the southeast United States and Latin American countries as needed.  Athena Rogers’ unique aviation background includes experience as a licensed A&P Mechanic, six years with the U.S. Coast Guard, and recently as an Aviation Paralegal with a focus on aircraft accident investigations. Athena will be based in Wichita, Kansas, and she will provide technical support for the central United States.  Andrew Gilland has over 30 years of experience in the aviation industry, including 15 years with Gulfstream. His most recent position was as a Senior Gulfstream Field Service Representative. Andrew is a licensed A&P technician, fluent in German, conversational in Spanish, and a veteran of the U.S. Army.  Andrew will be based in Florida as the new JSSI Technical Advisor supporting the southeast United States.

Marvin, a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, is bi-lingual in Spanish and has acquired several years of customer service experience. Tyler Fox holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern Illinois University and is pursuing his Masters degree in aviation related studies at the same university. Marvin and Tyler will be based at the Chicago, Illinois office where they will apply their aviation and customer service backgrounds to assist JSSI customers.

Charles Rudis has recently joined the JSSI Research and Development Team as Senior Analyst and will be instrumental in conducting cost analysis studies and developing rates for new and in-service aircraft and engine models. Charles joins JSSI from Priester Aviation with more than 30 years of aircraft maintenance experience and holds an A&P license with Inspection Authorization.
