Jackson Hall, Vice President of General Security Services Corporation (GSSC), Harley enthusiast and kid at heart was recently featured in Man Caves magazine for his elaborate Harley Davidson and sports themed man cave.
What started out as a garage floor upgrade in preparation for his daughter’s graduation party grew into a fun place to hang out and host parties. From Super Bowl to office parties, to entertaining GSSC clients, his man cave became THE place to be.
Jackson and his wife Shelley enjoyed working on the space, and found themselves adding more and more to it as the years went by. Jackson scoured Craigslist for deals on signs, games and matching décor. As of now, the Man Cave sports 18 neon lights, two 37” flat screen TVs, stereo, electronic dartboard, two pinball machines, popcorn machine, Ms. Pacman table top game and fold-up ping pong table. The walls are lined with 1/8” thick diamond plate steel and the floor is covered in a retro black and white checkered pattern VCT tile. The garage is heated when it’s cooler outside, and a custom screened garage door is used on those nights when a good cigar just can’t be refused. It’s the ULTIMATE ManCave!
When a friend recommended his man cave be featured in Man Caves magazine, he couldn’t refuse. The magazine sent writers and photographers and Jackson enjoyed every minute.
He admits in his free time he’s a 16 year old trapped in a 50 year old body. “Life’s too short to not have fun. It’s an escape for me. Our business is very serious, and I deal with a lot of issues all day long – so it’s a fun place to relax and escape at the end of the day,” he says.
He parks his Harley Davidson and a 50 year old Corvette convertible that was a gift for his wife in his garage. While he does drive them, they are part of the man cave’s décor. “I watched for deals, and when I found the right price I purchased the red corvette,” he said.
GSSC celebrates its employee’s anniversaries every five years. For his 20th anniversary, GSSC gave a Harley Davidson high top table with stools and a few neon lights to Jackson. He is proud of his work at GSSC and is reminded how well they treat their employees every time he sees his table or signs. Jackson just recently celebrated his 25 year anniversary with the company.
Located in Bloomington, Minnesota just outside of Minneapolis, GSSC has been a family owned business since 1946 and loyal AMAG integrator for 10 years. They are also a PSA Integrator.
