TECCOPS Computer Repair was founded in 2004 when the owner of Tucker Engineering, Sean Tucker, coined the phrase Computer Operation Performance Specialists. Sean has long had an interest in computer programming, system building and electronics. He attended the University of Illinois-Chicago studying Math and Computer Science and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Sean has been using computers at work and as a hobby since he purchased his first home computer, a TI-994/a in the early 1980’s, his used a variety of computers, including PC, UNIX, Macintosh, SUN and more during his college and professional career, First using an IBM PC in the mid-1980’s. While studying at UW-Madison he encountered his first computer virus on the Apple Macintosh computers (yes they had viruses 20 years ago!), an experience that taught him early on to be wary of sharing files from other computer users.
Through out his working career, Sean’s employers utilized his experience with computers to supplement or replace internal IT support, as a side duty to CAD & Mechanical Design Engineering, Electronic Repairs, and other non-technical duties. After his last employer relocated, Sean decided to make Tucker Engineering a full-time venture focusing on CAD design and consulting initially, but eventually changing focus to computer repairs when TECCOPS was formed.
Working with computers also lead to interaction with online sales and auction sites and ultimately to supplying collectibles and supplies as Tuck’s Cards. A fun side line to the brain strains of the technical world, Tuck’s Cards and POC_USA on eBay provide a fun outlet for Sean, allowing him additional opportunities to helping others continue to enjoy the fun things that interest them the most.
