Owner/GM

Jeff Chiero
Dealer Principal
815.939.9600 ext. 1242

Jeff moved down to the Kankakee area to open up Court Street Ford in 1983. Outside of the dealership he enjoys golfing, gardening, and spending time with his grandchildren. Few people know that his first job was bagging groceries, and that he has completed the Boston Marathon. Jeff enjoyed listening to Queen in his 1970 Nova SS (his first car), and still prefers to listen to Queen on any road trip to this day! Along with all the time that Jeff spends at the dealership he makes time to participate in the Bishop McNamara Foundation Board, Ford Dealer Association Board, Ford Dealer Advisory Board, and the Italian American Sons of Italy. We wonder when he has time to rest as well...
