Originally from Cali, Colombia, Jawir Dussan speaks Spanish (100% level) and English (90% level) and regards coming to America as a young teenager as the most significant event of his life, in addition to the birth of his first child. He has been working as a professional driver for 11 years. Meeting people from different backgrounds and managing his own time are the aspects of the job he likes best. He grew up in New Jersey and has lived in Fort Lauderdale and Miramar, Florida.
Jawir often drives passengers to Times Square, SoHo, Tribeca, East Midtown and the Financial District. SoHo is his favorite place in New York City and he is especially fond of the Argentinian steak house Novocento on West Broadway.
A cautious driver, Jawir always does his best to stay within the speed limit. He maintains a good distance between his vehicle and other cars and gives pedestrians the right of way. When a client enters his vehicle, Jawir introduces himself and will only engage in conversation if the client wishes to. To be as punctual as possible, Jawir uses the latest traffic apps. To keep his car clean, he scrubs the floor mats daily, goes to a car wash twice a week and utilizes coconut air fresheners.
He keeps water and gum in his 2014 Cadillac Escalade for his clients. The car has leather seating with the Cadillac logo, monitors in the headrests and ceiling, a BOSE sound system and an automatic running board. When he?s not working, Jawir likes playing soccer, watching Mets games, bowling with his four children, barbecuing in the summer with his family and taking them to the movies.
