Joyce Koons Buick GMC is a Buick and GMC dealer in Manassas, VA - serving Alexandria, Chantilly, and Fairfax, VA - that was founded by John and Eleanor Koons. John grew up on a farm in Leesburg, VA, and after breaking his neck in a swimming accident at age 18, the left side of his body was paralyzed. With treatment, he was able to walk again. In 1939, a year after the accident, John was hired as a salesperson at a DeSoto-Plymouth outlet in Falls Church. Two years after that, he became the owner. He bought the store for $350, part of which he had saved - the rest of which he had borrowed from Eleanor Ayres, a school teacher whom he later married. Then Eleanor and John purchased Prince Pontiac in 1954, which later became Koons of Manassas and then Joyce Koons Buick GMC, which is now a premier Buick and GMC dealer serving Fairfax.
Eleanor and John were active in a wide range of education, civic and charitable endeavors. They helped found the first Catholic high school in northern Virginia, a center for children with cerebral palsy, and a cardiac care unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital. John was a charter member and life director of the Cerebral Palsy Center and an honorary director of the Boys Club of Greater Washington, DC. He was also a member of the Falls Church Volunteer Fire Department.
John and Eleanor's daughter, Joyce Koons, took over the business in 1977. Joyce's legacy of integrity and empathy helped Joyce Koons Buick GMC grow to one of the top Northern Virginia Buick GMC dealerships.
Today, Joyce's children, David Hish and Angela Killinger carry on the Koons family's commitment to customer satisfaction and community service. Joyce Koons Buick GMC continues to support organizations that help children and families, like SPARK (the education foundation for Prince William County Public Schools), Journey4aCure (supporting research and enhancing the lives of children battling cancer), and KEEN Greater DC (providing exercise, fitness and fun to children with mental and physical disabilities).
