Bio: Jason Hankins is not a man of many words, but he doesn’t need to be. He lets his actions speak for themselves and those actions prove that Jason is very, very good at his job. 

Jason has been working at Silver Fox Steakhouse for the past 35 years. From day one, Jason was focused on the tasks at hand, no matter what they were. No job was too small, nor too big. 

“He’s the most honest person I’ve ever met,” Gina Michelle, the Front of House Manager stated. 

She’s not wrong. Jason is the kind of person who will look you in your eyes and tell you the truth, no matter what it is. But he’s also gentle. His smile is enough to brighten anyone’s days. And he always leads by example. Jason is a real leader, both in the restaurant and outside of it. 

When Jason says he’s going to be there, he’s there. No matter what. We can count on one hand the number of times Jason has called in. He is reliable and he always shows up to work. Every day, he shows his fellow employees the importance of integrity and honesty at work. People look up to him. 

“He’s rock solid,” Chef Bernard said. 

Jason is an important part of the Silver Fox team; he’s an important part of the family.

“We always try to treat our customers and our employees like family,” Gina said. “It’s not just a catchphrase. To be successful in this business, you need to care. Bernard and I, and our staff, care. I just won’t hire anyone that doesn’t understand that. We have seen generations of families grow up with us and that is fun and rewarding. It’s not just about making money; we try and provide an experience for our guests and employees that makes them feel appreciated.”

We hope that Jason feels appreciated, because he certainly is. He is as much a part of this restaurant, as much a part of its history as Bernard or Gina are. He has been pivotal to its success and he will continue to be an important part of the past, present, and future of Silver Fox Steakhouse. 

And he’ll do it all without saying a word.
