What can we say? He’s the man, the myth, the legend (in his own mind); but seriously he’s our CEO, our boss, our visionary, and the reason we are “not your average car dealer.” Originally from Michigan, he moved here in 1987 when his father transferred here to open the GM plant in Fort Wayne. Jason is a 1993 graduate of Concordia Lutheran High School, after which, Jason spent over 25 years in Automotive Sales with several years as Sales Manager for several local new car dealerships. Jason wanted a place of his own where customers could feel like family and not be pressured to buy something they may not like, want, or need. That is when he opened Wicked Automotive in December of 2007. He is proud to have served the New Haven/Fort Wayne area for over 15 years. In September of 2020 Jason moved Wicked Automotive to its current location at 7566 IN 930, right between Burger King and McDonald’s in New Haven. He is available Monday-Friday 10am to 6pm and Saturday 10am-2pm or by phone/text at 260-443-5414.
Fun Fact, his hobbies include traveling to new and exciting places especially by cruise ship. He also loves drag racing his rear engine dragster. He has one son, Ryan. Many New Haven locals also know him as the former owner of Smokehaus BBQ, former board member of the Chamber of Commerce, and long-time supporter of all the local car shows.
She’s our Vice President, First Lady, and so much more! She handles most of the behind-the-scenes stuff here at Wicked Automotive, but her most important job is keeping the boys (especially Jason) in line.
Carrie was born in Germany on a military base where her family was stationed. She then moved to California before setting up home in Clarksville, Tennessee. Yes, Carrie brought her southern hospitality to Wicked Automotive! She has two children, Bryanne and Matthew and her hobbies include traveling, watching the fellas drag race, photography, and making people happy.
Fun Facts, Carrie has been all over the Europe, Mexico, and the Caribbean. She will take thousands of photos until she gets just the right one, she will dance like no one is watching (even when they are). She loves Big Bang Theory, Mexican food, cheering on the Nashville Predators, and of course, fast cars! Oh, did we mention, she married the boss in November 2022!
Tom has been part of Wicked Automotive since the very beginning. He takes pride in being our “resident grumpy old man.” Tom is the father of two adult daughters. He has had a love for cars all this life. When not at the office, Tom is usually spending time tinkering on his race car, a 1966 Chevy Nova II. He has been an avid drag racer for over 40 years. He was the last winner at Avilla Dragway beating Jason in the final round before they closed their doors in 1995 and was a $10,000 winner at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He served in the United States Army and retired from Total Fleet Service. And hey, did we mention…. he’s single ladies! ??
What started as a friend helping Jason while he was out of town became what we refer to as “second shift”. Andy joined our team in February 2019 as our Part time Sales Manager. He is a key part in the Wicked Automotive world. When not at the office, Andy is usually spending time building his S-10 race truck with his son, Michael, or at the drag strip with friends. He is also a graduate of Concordia Lutheran High School in Fort Wayne, and has been a lifelong, local guy. Andy is a die-hard Harley fan and avid scuba diver. He is always happy to walk our customers through the paperwork portion of purchasing a vehicle and answering any questions.
Landon started with us a few months ago as a part time intern. He is a recent 2022 graduate of Leo High School. On his time off he enjoys spending time with his family at the lake, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, and loves to travel. If you see him on the lot don’t hesitate to say hello.
Say hello to Nova Grace! She’s a Toy Australian Shepherd and thinks everyone that comes to Wicked Automotive is here to see her. You can usually find her looking out the large glass windows (or barking to get your attention) . She loves snuggles, toys, treaters, travels, and chicken nuggets.
