About Us

Jack Jr., Inc. is a third-generation family-owned towing and auto repair facility. Our business was started by Jack T. Story, Sr. in 1952. Jack Sr. was a true “Jack” of all trades, specializing in everything from towing & auto repair, ice sales to bail bondsman. Jack Jr took over in 1977 adding heavy duty towing to the mix.

Jack Jr. was well known in the Western Tidewater area as “Mr. Jack or Peewee”. Jack Jr. retired after over 60 years passing the business on to his daughter Jackie. Jack Jr. passed away August 31, 2022, leaving a void in the hearts of many. Jackie has chosen to focus on auto repair and limit the towing side of the business.

The Story family is heavily involved in their community. Jack Jr. Towing & Auto Repair prides itself on contributing to the local fire and rescue squads, Virginia Special Olympics, local schools, churches and civic clubs.
