About Dan

Our president and CEO, Dan, established the company in 1968 with a partner. Four years later, Dan took full control of the business and has been making the original Joss Cues ever since.

He eventually moved the business to a new location and a few years later, his son, Stephen, joined him. They worked side by side in the shop while Debbie, Dan’s wife, handled the operations and sales.


Our cues have been used by members of the BCA Hall of Fame and other active competitors such as:

  • Mike Sigel

  • Nick Varner
  • Jim Rempe
  • Jimmy Moore
  • Luther Lassiter
  • Minnesota Fats

Our cues were also chosen to be featured in a film, “The Color of Money,” which resuscitated the entire billiard industry. In fact, that cue is still made today. Our Model N7 can be ordered now and you to can own a piece of history.

Dan has also made cues for many popular celebrities including:

In addition,

Dan is always looking for ways to improve the functionality and aesthetic of the cues he creates while maintaining the values and touch of traditional cue making.

Dan’s innate love for the game,

Along with his attention to detail gives him a feel for what is important in each cue. With his skills and determination, he was inducted into “The American Cue Makers Association” hall of fame in July 2003. Nine years later, he was also inducted into the “International Cuemakers Association Hall of Fame.”

About Debbie

She has been married to Dan for more than 44 years. When she first started working for Joss Cues, Debbie cut shafts, glued tips, and put in inlays. After some time, it became apparent that her skills were more needed in the front office. There she handles the day-to-day operation of the business and coordinates with the shop to keep the company running smoothly.

About Stephen

He started working for the company in 1979 when he was 18 years old. Stephen learned the trade from his dad and made his own contribution to the company’s process of cue making. With his years of hands-on experience, he earned his own place of distinction in the business.

Thanks to Stephen’s hard work and love for cue making, he was made a major partner in designing and creating Joss Cues®. In 2017, The American Cue Makers Association named him as Cue Maker of the year.
