Light Vehicle Mechanic

 Hi, I’m Jason; I grew up on this mountain and I am a lifelong Comstocker. I’ve never taken the history of the Comstock for granted. Mining and mining history were ingrained into me from my early years and, together with the friends I have made, is what I truly love about living here. I learned my trade here and I’ve been in mining since I was 20 years old. I learned the trade from a number of old timers that taught me everything from running a jack leg to blasting to square set timbering. I feel like I learned from the best on the Comstock. Being a “hands-on” and “in-the-dirt” kind of guy, coupled with the love of local history, mining came natural to me.

I currently work in the capacity of light vehicle mechanic for Comstock Mining. My favorite part of my job is the people and working in the area that I grew up in. I am happy to have the opportunity to work locally, be so close to friends and family, and work for an outstanding company like Comstock Mining.

I live in Gold Hill, but I am currently working on my dream house, a historic little house that was moved out to my property just above American Flat. The little house was one of the four that were moved from a location next to the courthouse last year. I am excited about finishing my new home and feel privileged to live and work in such a unique place.  

 My hobbies include mechanics, history, hiking, and just enjoying the great Nevada lands in general.  On my time off, lately, I have been working on my new house on the side of the hill or just doing all the other things I enjoy.
