    General Sales Manager

    I was born into a military family and have had the opportunity to travel to many places throughout the country. Colorado has now been my home for over 20 years, but I recently had the chance to help open our sister location, Mercedes-Benz of Farmington in Farmington, Utah. I now take my experience over the past six years with Schomp to the role of Corporate Trainer to help build and grow our team to deliver the best experience in the automotive industry.  After returning from Utah, I now live with my wife Stephanie and our golden retriever Ollie in Parker, Colorado. I was a communications major at the University of Colorado, minoring in law studies. I was drawn to the Schomp organization because of its strong reputation and innovative business philosophies. We’ve created an environment designed to meet your needs. I share the belief that we truly are here to work for only one person: you. Through hard work and dedication, I look forward to providing you with a truly seamless, stress-free new or pre-owned vehicle purchasing experience.

    “Schomp I have been with Schomp Automotive since 2014. I was on our corporate training team for a while before coming back to the sales side to become a Senior Client Advisor. I grew up around Milwaukee, Wisconsin most of my life. My love of cheese and beer is in my DNA.  I served in the Army for three years working with the Patriot Missile system. I was lucky enough to be stationed in Germany and got to travel lots of Europe. I spent many years working in the casino industry working my way up from a blackjack dealer up to a table games shift manager. In my off time, I enjoy spending time with my cats, going to sporting events, and participating in obstacle races.

    My name is Jesse Cooper and I was born and Raised in Morrison, CO. My entire family was based in the Automotive Industry, so much so that I spent some of my childhood weekends helping my mom grill hot dogs and hamburgers during her weekend sales and it was something I just always enjoyed and stuck with me. One of my close friends who already worked at Schomp told me about here and it just seemed like a perfect fit for me. I joined the team in 2019. Before working at Schomp, I had just graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder where I received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Media Production. This degree allowed me to go down to Orlando, FL and participate in the Internship Program at The Walt Disney World Resort. If you bring up any Disney Song, I promise I will karaoke sing that song with you no matter where we are. Promise!

    I’m a huge art and foodie kind of person. I love visiting new restaurants, food trucks, and coffee shops all over Denver on the weekends. Denver always has something new and upcoming which makes it so fun to explore! I also love photography and going on a random adventure to find new places with my friends! I am super passionate about my family. I grew up in a Single Mom household and my mom means the absolute world to me. My mom has always been my biggest supporter and has always encouraged me to do the best in everything I can.

    Since joining the Schomp organization back in 2015, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work a multitude of jobs throughout the service department. I have had the pleasure of working on the vehicles as a certified MINI technician, working the service drive and meeting customers from all walks of life, and learning the parts department from the counter to what it entails to run a department.  I would consider myself an expert when it comes to the cars and the brand of MINI in general. I also own a MINI (R56) so that helps.  Outside of work, I find myself riding and working on motorcycles. I have owned more bikes than I care to admit. Here at work, my goal is to help both the customers and the employees feel comfortable and show everyone that Schomp is a one-of-a-kind experience that cannot be found anywhere else.
