About Us

Owner Jason Daniel was born and raised in Colorado. From a young age, Jason loved everything mechanical. When he wasn't riding bicycles and motorcycles or exploring in his Jeep CJ 5, he was working on them. At the age of 14, he was given the opportunity to actually make money doing what he loves, working on cars! Gene Granaroli saw talent and enthusiasm in Jason and instantly brought him into Gene's Auto Repair in Santa Barbara to work summers, until going full time at the age of 18. It was here, that Jason started working on Jeeps, which remains his specialty today. For years, Jason had the very unique experience of being Ronald Reagan's mechanic, working on all of the former Presidents Jeeps, up at the Reagan Ranch

Jason is married to playwright Cricket Daniel. Jason and Cricket married in December of 1994 in Santa Barbara and moved to Bend the following May of 1995 to begin their new life together and to start a family. The couple opened Daniel Automotive in January 2005. They have a beautiful daughter, Spencer who is a student at Pilot Butte Middle School. They enjoy getting away in their little 24' RV and enjoying everything that Central Oregon has to offer
