Team

Meet the staff members that work behind the scenes at the BC Sports Hall of Fame.

Jason Beck – Curator and Facility Director

In November 2003 while attending the University College of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, Jason began a six-month practicum at the BC Sports Hall of Fame creating an organizational guide for the Hall’s archival collection. At the practicum’s conclusion he was hired part-time as a curatorial assistant for the summer, a position he maintained for the next two years while completing his B.A. in History at Simon Fraser University. Over time Jason’s roles broadened to include work with the artifact collection and creating museum displays, as well as research and writing. Upon graduation in 2006, he was hired as the BC Sports Hall of Fame’s full-time curator, responsible for managing the Hall’s enormous artifact and archival collections. A sports nut since a young boy and a competitive soccer player, Jason remains passionate about sharing with visitors BC sports stories of all kinds—the great, the weird, the tragic, the unknown—using items from the Hall of Fame’s remarkable collection.
