Jerry Spoon, the sole proprietor of MD Equipment Services LLC, was born in 1965 in Reno, NV. His life was fairly uneventful up until he was 15 when his parents packed up, moving to Sonora, CA. No, not wine country, but a beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain town in the midst of gold rush country. Two years later he traveled north to become a future Oregon State Beaver with a degree in Industrial Engineering. After graduating, he moved to Portland where he spent the great majority of his adult life. Jerry worked as a Manufacturing Engineer for several companies from 1988 through 2010 before he finally went out on his own and started selling manufacturing equipment. He flirted with selling food commodities for close to 7 years, when he was not working in manufacturing. Jerry moved to Central Oregon in 2018 for a change of environment.
As an engineer, Jerry managed capital equipment projects including purchase, installation, and qualification phases. He also programmed burn tables, oversaw manufacturing processes, managed surplus equipment inventory, designed experiments, taught business writing, was extensively trained in statistical analysis, and performed a plethora of miscellaneous manufacturing duties.
