Jason Reaves founded Camellia Collision Center, LLC on August 1st, 2018. But, we didn't start there...
Jason was born and raised in Greenville, AL and if you have spent any time in our beautiful Camellia city, you likely know him.
Jason came from very humble beginnings. He was raised by his Grandmother (Leila Camellia Ammons Mosley). She didn't have much, but she had one thing that money couldn't buy and that was a drive to get things done. She passed that trait down to Jason and always encouraged him to work hard and follow his dreams.
Jason developed a love for automobiles in his early teens and attended Reid State Technical College straight out of high school to pursue a career in the collision industry. He landed his first job in a Paint and Body Shop in neighboring Evergreen, AL in 1998. In the years that followed, he worked in and managed several other collision centers throughout AL and FL. His goal, at that time was to learn as much as he could from the industry professionals to perfect his skill. However, his dream has always been to own and operate his own collision center in his hometown of Greenville, AL.
Jason met many people who became not only mentors, but also great friends, along the way. One of those people was Romeo Breau, III. Romeo owned and operated Romeo 3's Collision in Greenville for more than 10 years. It had always been a dream of Romeo's to relocate to Baldwin County, AL to be closer to family.
One November afternoon, Romeo and Jason's dreams collided and formed a partnership that changed the course of both of their lives. Jason started managing the Greenville shop for Romeo in December, 2015. That freed Romeo up to finally make the move to Robertsdale, AL and gave Jason the opportunity to manage and operate a shop in our beautiful Camellia city.
Jason's dream of owning a collision center in his hometown finally came true on August 1st, 2018 when he and his wife (Janet) purchased the Greenville location of Romeo 3's Collision.
It is a testament to what can happen when you surround yourself with people that work hard and never give up.
In honor and appreciation to his beautiful hometown and his beloved Grandma Leila Camellia, Camellia Collision Center, LLC felt like the perfect name to represent the values we hold and the love that we have for our customers and community.
