  • Jon Howell
    Service Manager

    I grew up in Shawnee Kansas with my parents, 3 sisters and 1 brother.  Went to Shawnee Mission Northwest high school.  I was active in any and all sports possible and like the outdoors.

    I started off in the car industry as a service technician at Midas in Lees Summit Missouri in Feb 2001.  During that time I was also going to school at Johnson County Community College.  I completed my automotive certificate and graduated with my Associate degree in May 2001.  I continued as a technician until becoming a store manager at the Midas in Leawood  Kansas in 2004.  I stayed with Midas until 2012 helping develop and train technicians and service professionals. 

    I decided to make the switch from aftermarket to the dealership world in April 2012 starting at Hendrick Toyota in Merriam Kansas.  Enjoyed 7 years with the Hendrick Toyota team, starting as a service advisor, transitioning into the Service lane manager and later becoming the Service Manager. 

    I went to Shawnee Mission Kia in April 2019 as the Service Director.  I spent 3 years completely rebuilding the service department and maintaining a high level of service professionals. 

    I currently started here at Hendrick Lexus North July 2022.  I am really excited to be back with the Hendrick organization and looking forward to this opportunity. 

    I live in Olathe Kansas with my wife Katelynn and 5 children.  We have a blended family and have been married for 8 years.  Our oldest daughter Madison is going to be a freshman at Arkansas University this fall.  Taylor will be a Junior at Olathe Northwest High school and Landon will be a freshman.  Scarlett is going into the 4th grade and Weston will be in Kindergarten.  We also have 2 dogs, Daisy and Bo.  Our family is very busy with sports, traveling, outdoor activities and various other things.  We like to go boating,  swimming, hiking or anything outdoors.

  • Begi Velasquez
    Service Advisor

    I was born in Baku, which is located in Azerbaijan. My family and I relocated here to Kansas City in the late 90s. I've worked in the car industry for 12 years, and out of the 12, 3 have been spent working in service. I've been married for four years to my wonderful husband, and we have two dogs; King James, who just turned six, and Toby, who is seven. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my niece and nephew grow or traveling around the world to see new places!
