Jamey Jordon: Former WyoTech Student Shines
Posted Tuesday, Sep 10, 2013 by
Jamey Jordan, WyoTech Laramie graduate in 2002, visited the Blairsville campus during the week of Aug. 19. Jordon, along with Brian Pierce (Street Rod and Custom Fabrication program instructor, Blairsville campus, spoke to students about the merits of an education. Jordon has a story to tell of how he got to where he is today as a result of the right education and hard work.
Jordon owns a business called Handmade Seat Co. based in Mississippi; he does some amazing automotive, motorcycle seat works, furniture and metal art. His skills are inspired by what he learned from the custom fabrication training he received at WyoTech in Laramie. In his four-day visit to WyoTech’s Blairsville campus, he aimed to teach WyoTech students as much as possible.
Jordon teamed with instructor Pierce to assist students in creating and installing custom-formed metal panels on a 64′ Ford F100. This truck was originally worked on by WyoTech grads on the show Trucks and was taken to the Blairsville campus to finish.
The truck will be unveiled at this year’s Las Vegas Specialty Equipment Marketing Association (SEMA) event. The SEMA show is scheduled Nov. 5-8. Jordon will be at the WyoTech booth where he will discuss his work and amazing skills. More than 2,000 world-class companies should attend this year’s SEMA event.

George Kremposki After WyoTech, I worked at a few collision shops and four hot rod shops. I have a steady flow of people who want me to do work for them. Some wait up to a year for me to do the work on their babies. I've taken a short vacation from building cars and have turned my efforts to building some of the country's coolest jet boats.
