Owner & General Manager

Jason Gillette

Jason & founder John Baril have been close friends for over 25 years; when John was ready to step back, he chose Jason to take over the business as owner and general manager in April 2019. Prior to Baril Engine, Jason had a 22-year career at MBM, culminating as Executive Vice President.

Baril Engine is a family-owned, independent, and growing company with stable ownership that is personally committed to its employees and customers. However, Baril Engine’s owner believes our purpose should be about more than rebuilding great engines. Our purpose is to love the Lord our God in everything we do and to love our neighbors as ourselves. (Matthew 22:36-40). We strive to conduct our business in ways that leave evidence of our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a high standard, and sometimes we fall short, but we persevere nonetheless.
