As the electrician at Ricart Automotive, Joe Simmons takes care of just about anything having to do with electricity at the Mega Mall: Lot lights, compressors, lifts. You name it, if it’s powered by electricity, Joe is the guy who keeps it operating at peak performance. Joe joined Ricart in 2006.
Joe was born in Jacksonville, Fla. but he grew up in Central Ohio and graduated from Gahanna schools. He did return to South Florida and lived there for 22 years before returning to the Columbus area.
In his spare time, Joe enjoys fishing and, in his words, “causing trouble.” He has two cats that help him. We think their names are very appropriate: Topsy and Turvey.
