Jason began his towing career with Brandon Towing Service as a Tow Truck Operator. It takes a unique person to operate a tow truck and Jason was definitely one of these people who had towing in his blood. Jason worked for BTS for several years either as a full time or a part time operator. During his employment with BTS he achieved his class 1 license and started operating heavier tow trucks.

While operating a tow truck part time, Jason started selling vehicles at Kelleher Ford as his full time employment, which he excelled at. He enjoyed selling vehicles and many months he would earn the spiff for exceeding the monthly sales goal. He was amazingly good at anything and everything he put his mind to. Jason made another career change and started with Jamieson & Judd Electrical, and continued to operate a heavy tow truck on a part time basis for All Rig Towing. He continued on with Jamieson & Judd for several years and became a Journeyman Construction Electrician, with a grade of 98%. If you knew Jason, you would know that 98% wasn’t quite good enough for him. He always strived for perfection, a trait that served him well. While still employed with Jamieson and Judd, Jason worked on the Royal Oak Inn expansion as well as numerous other electrical jobs in the area. Jason also managed several large construction projects, for his employers, such as the Brandon Hospital expansion for an electrical company based in Newfoundland named JS Murray Electric, and the construction of the PPCLI buildings in Shilo, MB for Park City Electric located in Brandon, MB.

When Jason finished his employment in October 2004 in Shilo, MB, he was laid off. Jason took this opportunity and began to write a business plan to start his own towing company here in Brandon, MB. He spent several months preparing to start his own business, now known as Accel Towing and Transport Ltd. Jason successfully started this business with 2 trucks, a goose neck trailer, himself and support from Angela, and transformed it to the largest company of its kind in the Westman area, with approximately 20 trucks, trailers and 20 employees. Jason was a risk taker, a visionary, every risk he took paid off and every vision he had always came to life due to his perseverance. Failing was never an option for Jason, no matter what he did. Jason took much pride in the business he and Angela created. Customer service and exceeding the typical expectations of a towing company was extremely important to Jason. He was a true professional at everything he did.
