Joe Niggley was born to a family of mechanics, his father was a mechanic and his father before him so it was only natural that Joe would be a mechanic. Joe grew up with a love of cars and other forms of automobiles. He learned from his dad and grandad how to fix, maintain and run them, to prepare him for his job. After around 10 years of being a mechanic and never cheating a customer and always doing his job, a richer individual from Chernarus called him specifically to work on his 2016 Ford Shelby because all other mechanics in Chernarus are untrusted because of their greed. Joe, very excited about his new task, was flown out to Chernarus to work on this car in 2014 and Joe was paid 20,000 rubles, which Joe thought was a lot, it wasn't. Joe, after completing the task, was given his money but was shocked when he didn't even have enough for a ticket back. So Joe, stuck in Chernarus got a job as a mechanic at Cherno and waited to get enough money to fly back home, but it was too late, a certain infection has forced all out flights to other countries being halted as to not spread the infection.
