Dee Jorgensen


Chuck Jorgensen has been at the forefront of JX since the day he opened the first dealership. However, Dee Jorgensen, Chuck’s late wife, has left a lasting impression of her own on the direction of the company. Her generous heart, passion for education, and love for her community has greatly influenced the culture of JX.

In the midst of a job and raising her children, Dee also volunteered as a tutor for special needs children and adults, helping them learn to read and write. While spending countless hours volunteering at the Food Pantry of Waukesha County, Dee led by example. When other volunteers saw the impact she had on the lives of visitors, they were inspired to do the same. This generous attitude was passed down from Dee and Chuck to the couple’s children – Thomas, Eric, and Kurt – and grandchildren. Eric Jorgensen, President & CEO, has worked to build a culture that supports positive change in the communities where JX locations reside.

Even during years of difficult financial times, every JX dealership made a donation to a local charity. Associates were also encouraged to develop an ongoing relationship. Although Dee passed away in October 2014, her legacy remains a beacon of light for many.


Over the years, JX has earned many awards including more than 20 Peterbilt Platinum Ovals, more than 35 Peterbilt awards for Outstanding Sales and Service Performance, and awards for Parts Management Excellence and Best in Class as a dealer. The company has been an eleven-time recipient of the Deloitte Wisconsin Top 75, awarded to the state’s largest privately and closely held companies for their contributions to the Wisconsin people and economy. JX Truck Center has received multiple Quota Buster and Million Dollar awards for outstanding parts sales. Other company honors include a listing in the INC 5000, multiple wins as Wisconsin Truck Dealer of the Year, PacLease Franchise of the Year, and American Truck Dealer of the Year finalist.


JX was voted a “Top Company for Women to Work for in Transportation” by Redefining the Road, the official magazine of the Women in Trucking Association in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
