New computer services company opens


“I repair computers, administer networks; I also do network penetration testing,” says Jason Gibbs, the new face of computer repair in Goldendale. He moved Gibbs Technical Services into 122 East Main, Suite B, one of the suites on the second floor of the Rainbow Video building. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and he can be reached at (541) 965-2406.

“I repair other electronics too,” Gibbs continues. “If it has a circuit board, I’ll fix it.” His college training was in automobile electronic diagnosis.

Gibbs says he’s been in Washington for about two years now. He’s been a Goldendale resident since October of 2012 and moved from Nebraska. “I decided to leave Nebraska and came back to Washington where I basically grew up,” he recalls.

Gibbs considers himself to be self-taught and “learned from some of the biggest tech gurus around.” “A buddy of mine ran a government data center,” Gibbs reminisces. “He’s always been my mentor; when it does get to a point when I’m not certain of something, I can find out really fast.” He explains further, “I’ve done everything from cleaning a lens on a CD player to putting in one of the largest commercial networks in town. My goal here is to help the community and be a part of it.”

On the subject of choosing Goldendale, Gibbs’ answer is short and concise: “It reminded me of small-town Nebraska; it reminded me what I like to see in town because people like to help each other.”

Gibbs charges $30 an hour, almost unheard of in the business. “I’m happy when people come in and see that the bill was so cheap,” he says. “If I can keep the computer repairs affordable, why not?”

Gibbs stands by his ability to turn around most of his work same-day so that customers won’t be waiting for weeks on end. If his service exceeds two hours and takes additional work, Gibbs makes sure to let the customer know in advance.

“I love what I do,” he says. “If you can make a living doing something you love, you’ve done the right thing. I love helping out and just contributing when I can.”
