Meet the Team at Jenniges Gas & Diesel
Richard Jenniges, Founder
Richard was born and raised in Wanda, MN, where he still lives with this wife, JoAnn. After one year in diesel mechanic tech school, he went into the military for two years. When he returned from service, Richard finished diesel mechanic school and went on to work for various diesel shops over the next 12 years. In 1985, he decided to open his own business—Jenniges Gas & Diesel, Inc. He and JoAnn ran the shop for many years on their own, and then with help of their sons, Rick and Jamie.
Rick Jenniges, Owner
Rick was born and raised in Wanda, MN, and now lives in rural Wabasso with his wife and four girls. He grew up working at Jenniges Gas & Diesel with his dad before he and his brother, Jamie took over the business in January of 2014. Rick went to Alexandria Tech for diesel mechanics, and is an ASE certified technician and DOT inspector.
“I started working in the shop when I was a kid, helping clean parts and sometimes just hanging out. When I was a senior in high school, I started logging hours after school and over the summer months as well. Once I graduated from high school, I worked at the shop for one year and then went to tech school for two years. I finished tech school in 1999, and worked with my dad fulltime until buying the business in January 2014.” — Rick Jenniges
