About Our Shop in Jackson, MS

The Mr. Transmission Story

A Letter From Our Owner


”In 1985, while working in store management for the Sherwin-Williams Paint Company, I accepted an offer to become the Center Manager at the Mr. Transmission on Highway 80 and Ellis Avenue. Ten years later, the original owner was ready to retire and offered to sell his business to me. With pride, I accepted his offered and purchased the business.”

”The core values and commitment to my customers and team members are the reason why this location has become so successful. Our rebuilders, Lonnie Burrell, Jr. and Mark Pearson, are both ASE certified and our team attends ATSG and ATRA Technical Seminars annually to stay up to date on the latest diagnostic and repair information.”

”Mr. Transmission of Jackson, MS is proud to be one of the few transmission centers in the state of Mississippi that offer computer reprogramming and reflashing. State-of-the-art equipment and continuous training keep us up-to-date with all transmission service innovations. We can’t wait for you to visit us”
