Jason Sharp

YOUNG truckie Jason Sharp was beside his 2007 Freightliner when Big Rigs saw him north of Townsville on October 16.

33-year-old Jason works for Geoff and Diane Somerville and he is based in Sydney.

"I have carted vinidex products up here to Townsville and will have a backload for south," he said.

The reliable Freightliner is powered by a C-15 550hp motor and is a good truck according to Jason.

Outside of work Jason enjoys fishing around the Hawkesbury region with mixed success.

"I will take anything that manages to get hooked on my line," he said.

He enjoys stopping at the Coolongolook Roadhouse near Taree and has been with the company for around four years.

"It is a good job and I like the truck as well," he said.
