The Jet City Team

Jet city staff

Nemencio“Junior” Bautista,
Amazing Technician

Junior traveled a lot as a kid being the son of a military man. He’s lived in Seattle the longest and loves it here. He’s painted airplanes and worked in carpentry for 15 years and realized seeing the same 3 people day in and day out, he was missing a social life. He came to Jet City in April of 2018 and likes the family-like environment, the team comradery and meeting all the people on the jobs. “I care about everything I do. I want to do a good job because it has my name on it!” Junior enjoys riding his Harley FXR and loves going to concerts.

What customers are saying:

"I just want to acknowledge Jr. for his positive attitude and great work ethic! He is always pleasant to work with and I just want you to know that we appreciate him here at Axis!"        Evelyn, Manager 

“I really like Junior. He does a great job on our carpets and we’d like to see him all the time!”
Bret, Maintenance Supervisor

                "I like it when you send out Junior. He knows my property and                            always does a great job."                   
Moises, Maintenance Supervisor 

             "Junior knows what to do and gets the job done right."                Diloc, Maintenance Supervisor 

 

Spencer Gritis,
Technician Musician

Spencer moved from the Blue Ridge mountains to Seattle to follow his heart and change his life. He's a self-taught musician, loves the outdoors and is an avid fisherman. At our 30th anniversary Christmas party in 2020, he caught a catfish, fishing out the wiindow at the Edgewater Hotel, where we all stayed the night after a delicious Christmas feast.

What he loves the most about carpet cleaning is the freedom it gives you and each day being different. Meeting all kinds of new people makes the job fun.

What customers are saying:

"Spencer was just the BEST! He did the best job on my carpet, more than anyone else ever has, and he was so polite and nice. I want him out again do my basement!" - Maureen B., Seattle

"I would like to request Spencer for all my jobs at the property. He does such a great job and I like talking with him."

What people are saying:

 "Syd" Hevenor,
Safety Officer, Special Projects

Syd has known Jade for most of his life. They grew up together more like brothers than anything else. Syd's wander lust sent him to Alaska where he met the mother of his children and then lived in Australia for over two decades raising his family. He's been a safety director at major construction work sites in remote regions all over the world and decided to simplify his life and move back to where it all started. He came on board at Jet City as our safety officer for our special projects teams like Cyclone pressure washing, dry ice blasting and bed bug heat treatments. We are excited to have one of our longest term family member's return to the fold.

Dorothy Spencer,
Office Sanity

Dorothy met Liz about 20 years ago when she was teaching a class through Discover U. She helped organize Liz after her extensive global travels and a strong trusting bond developed. After Liz started at Jet City, she called upon Dorothy to bring her organizational talents to help get things right again. She has been with the company nearly as long as Liz and is considered “Aunt Dorothy.”

Dorothy was #2 in charge at a large insurance broker and helped to grow that business into a large company where she was responsible overseeing 30 agents locally and in other states. Since she retired, she started Esperanza Services and helping Jet City.

Liz MacDonald,
Office Manager

Liz has been with Jet City since August 2008. She stepped in to help out temporarily and has been here ever since. She runs the office, answers the phone, does the marketing, bookkeeping, promotions, creative design and is the social director. She basically makes it all work.

Liz tries her hardest to make the property manager or maintenance supervisor’s job as easy as possible and has created a new proprietary Jet City App. Any of our Maintenance Supervisors or Property Managers can download the App on their smart phone and order services directly from Jet City.

Liz is also a world renown psychic and has traveled the globe with her readings and workshops and is highly respected. She was a radio DJ for 17 years and used to be on the air locally on KISW in Seattle and is the voice, creator and editor of the Jet City video’s. She and Jade are life partners and pleased he now loves to travel as much as she does!

Jade Brown,
Owner

This is the man that started it all. He left the carpet cleaning company he had been working for 6 years when it was sold and started Jet City Carpet Cleaning in 1989. Clients followed him because he was so good, he had to hire other staff as word of mouth spread. When he met Liz in 2008, the company had changed its name to Jade’s Jet City Carpet Cleaning and had a great reputation.

Jade’s love of new technology and Liz’s marketing skill launched the company again and it has grown to its largest ever. 2010 saw the start of bed bug heat treatments which was born of opportunity of a great machine and the needs of the multi-family industry. In 2013 it was the same with Dry Ice Blasting, which is as its name describes, 2016 with Vinyl Plank cleaning and the new scrubber, 2017 with Cyclone Technology using 135 mph wind and hot water for underground garage cleaning leaving no residue and our Tymco Sweeper, adding parking lot and industrial cleaning to our arsenal; and then 2018 with the mosamatic head for trash chute cleaning.

Even after all these years, his passion about carpet cleaning hasn’t diminished. Jade keeps working on new ideas and proves our mottos “Technology With Elbow Grease” and “Not Just A Carpet Cleaning Company” are more than just words.

Liz has become Jade’s life partner and he also has two adult children. He loves collecting guns and cars and has quite a classic car collection.
