Chuck Jira – Our Late Founder

Chuck learned HVAC and refrigeration while he was in the Navy a long, LONG time ago. He started Jira Heating & Cooling in 1973 and was still running service calls until a few years ago. Today, Chuck is retired, but stays busy on his iPad. He is currently working to patent his original recipe for ice, an otherwise top-secret family recipe known only to Andy and Amy, his two brilliant children.

Jason Savich – Master Technician

When Dean Brucks retired after 39 years, we knew his replacement would have big shoes to fill. Good thing Jason wears a size 13! In all seriousness, Jason joined Jira in 2019 and has been diligently serving Jira clients every day since. Jason has worked in the HVAC and refrigeration industry for more than 20 years. From heating and cooling, to automotive repair, dog whispering, or even designing delightful holiday light scenes, his masterful knowledge and skills are sure to exceed your every expectation.

Andrew Gessling – Licensed Journeyman

Andrew Gessling is no stranger to Jira! We still remember the day when a 15-year-old Andrew bounded through the door of Tiger Ice and asked, “Y’all hiring?” The rest is history. Now a seasoned 37-year-old, father of. . . count them. . . 1, 2, 3, FOUR boys, Andrew is one of our most trusted jack-of-all trades. His expertise is commercial ice machines, but you can count on Andrew for customer-centered service for any and all of your heating and cooling needs!
