Jason Castille



Jason comes from a long lineage of veterans dating back from WWII, Vietnam and the Gulf War with his immediate family completing tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Having not served himself, he still possesses the heart of a warrior with great respect for those who have bravely served this country.

After graduating from high school, college for him was not an option, consequently, he immediately began working offshore as a novice helper. Since then, he has spent  23 years building a successful career in the Petroleum and Petrochemical Industry. 

He is currently a Project Manager for an inspection company and holds two certifications through The American Petroleum Institute (API). Year-round, he and his team travel throughout the United States to a multitude of Refineries and Chemical Plants providing Turnaround services for their clients.


In spite of the fact that Jason did not get the opportunity to serve our great country as a young man, he feels honoured to be part of HW4Warriors as a helping force in the healing of those brave men and women who keep this country safe.
