Fixing More Than Just Power Equipment | From the Heart with Jason De Leeuw | Calgary Business

Jason is the founder of Father and Sons Power Equipment, a repair service with a mission to fix more than just power equipment. What makes Father and Sons special is their apprenticeship program for troubled youth. For Jason it’s important to be an active male role model in the lives of his apprentices, to make an impact on really improving their lives.

Jason himself struggled as a teenager but was able to turn his life around when he moved to Calgary for college. He joined a church and met a good friend and mentor who made a big difference in his life. Out of that experience and the need to give back to his community, Jason turned a small garage operation into a growing business. And he has bigger plans yet for Father and Sons.

Watch Jason share his amazing journey and the big plans he has for Father and Sons.
