Jason Chester

OWNER driver Jason Chester drives around North Queensland in a 2006 model Isuzu and reckons it is a top light rig.

The 41-year-old Jason uses the Isuzu for his business, Greenscene Fencing and Paving, and we saw him hard at work on November 28 in the Townsville suburb of Aitkenvale.

"This truck is really ideal for what I do and I purchased it brand new. We get around to places like Ingham, Charters Towers and Ayr," he said.

Jason is based in Townsville and is well known having led a colourful life as a bull rider at various rodeos.

He wears a wide-brimmed hat always in the heat of the tropics and says, with summer here, it is more vital than ever.

His twin brother Mark Chester runs a sign writing business in the city and also drives a truck and the pair are often mistaken for each other.
