Jakob Junis Partnering with Kunes Auto / RV Group

We at Kunes Auto / RV Group are thrilled to announce our new partnership with Jakob Junis, pitcher for the Milwaukee Brewers. The Junis family has a longstanding relationship with our Sterling stores. Jakob, also known as Jake, attended nearby Rock Falls High School, and his parents, Jody and Jennifer, have been loyal customers of our Sterling locations for many years. This partnership celebrates not only Jake's professional achievements but also his family's deep-rooted connection to our community.

The Journey Here

Jake Junis's journey to Milwaukee has been a long and eventful one. He was initially selected in the 29th round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the Kansas City Royals. Jake made his major league debut with the Royals in 2017, where he played for five seasons. During his tenure in Kansas City, he accumulated impressive statistics, securing 29 wins and 468 strikeouts, with an earned run average (ERA) of 4.82.

Following his tenure with the Kansas City Royals, Jake Junis moved to the San Francisco Giants. Over two seasons with the Giants, he demonstrated his prowess on the mound, achieving 194 strikeouts and maintaining an earned run average (ERA) of 4.18. During his first season in San Francisco, Jake started 17 games and appeared in a total of 23. In his second season, he was even more active, participating in 40 games and starting in 4 of them.

After successful stints with the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants, Jakob Junis has signed a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, which includes a mutual option for a second year. We at Kunes Auto / RV Group are proud to welcome Jakob Junis to our team for the 2024 season. In celebration of this partnership, we will soon announce a series of "Meet n' Greet" events featuring Jakob at our dealerships. These events will provide fans and customers a unique opportunity to meet Jakob and enjoy some special activities at our locations. Stay tuned for the upcoming dates and details!
