About Me

Hi my name is… what, my name is… who my name is… Jason Chappell. Lame, I know. It is what it is.

So, you want to find out more about me?

Well, first of all, this blog is called Darth Zeiler’s Blog because my screen name on most things is DarthZeiler, save for maybe a few specific games, and Facebook. My real name is Jason Chappell, and I am quite nerdy and passionate about several things.

I have approximately 10 years of experience in Information Technology, most of it in upper management, I left IT about 3 years ago, while going through a divorce with my ex-wife. I wanted a change, and to just get away from it all. That is when I got my CDL and started truck driving. I know, I know, making dramatic changes like that during a divorce is not the best thing to do, but it is what it is.

For my first few years as a truck driver, I was OTR, driving all over the country. About a year ago, I switched to driving locally for a non-profit organization, still in a full sized Class A semi. I love what I do, and who I do it for.

I am now engaged to the most amazing woman I have ever met. She supports me in everything I do. I love her like no one else I’ve ever met, other than my daughter.

As for where I am from, I was born and raised in Utah, but have lived in Arizona for the past couple of years. No, I am not, nor have I ever been, Mormon.
