Jernej Kožar was born into the Žorž family in Hrovača near Ribnica in 1907. In school in Ribnica, he was known as an excellent pupil with exceptional technical talent. At the age of fourteen, he was sent to St. Stanislav’s Institution grammar school and boarding house in Šentvid near Ljubljana, so that he would, after finishing grammar school, continue his studies for the vocation for which St. Stanislav's Institution prepared its students. He soon found this course unappealing and more and more often lingered in the nearby Krušič body shop. With the help of the owner’s son, his peer Štefan, and without his parents’ knowledge, he moved from the boarding house into master Gregorin’s apprentice apartment and completed his apprenticeship with him with distinction. Then he took a job with master Gregorin and contributed to certain important creations of his garage. Since body shop work was not creative enough for him, he started visiting masters Levičnik and Lovše's garages in his free time and later took a job with one of them, but only for a short while. In 1937, he returned to his home town of Ribnica where he opened a garage. In the years after the war, he worked as a renowned expert at the Ministry of Local Transport of the government of the People's Republic of Slovenia.
