Reiplinger Garage

Our Story

J&L Oil Inc. has a long-standing history in the petroleum and gas industry, dating back to the 1920s. Jay Reiplinger, a proud fourth-generation "Oil guy," has been in this field for over 25 years. His grandfather owned the Reiplinger Brothers Gas Station in the 1950s.

Jay's journey began in construction, but his passion for the industry led him to acquire a local gas station in Cass Lake. Jay and Laurie made the exciting decision to establish J&L Oil Inc. in Bemidji, bringing their dedication and expertise to deliver top-notch energy solutions to the community.

Meet The Team


Owner & Operator


Jay is the owner and operator and backbone of J&L Oil. He has worked hard to keep this business successful for almost 25 years. Jay is a very motivated, hardworking and honest businessman and he hasn't met a person or customer that hasn't become a friend. He is a family man first to our son Luke and daughter Hannah who both help out with the business from time to time while living their own lives. He loves to hunt, fish, camp and spend time with family and friends. Jay is very ambitious and always finding ways to help grow our family owned and operated business!


Secretary & Bookkeeper


Laurie is our secretary and bookkeeper, she joined the J&L family full-time in 2020. She does a fantastic job of organizing and keeping track of the massive amounts of paperwork needed to run a business! She was a bookkeeper and a Pharmacy Tech in the past to provide a paycheck and insurance for the family until our company outgrew our old computer system and Jay's bookkeeping skills! She is a very hard worker and is dedicated to her family, friends, customers, and community. We are very fortunate to have her on our team!


Head of Transport


Steve is the head of our transport division. He is a family man, married to Julie and has a daughter Ashley in Sioux Falls and a son Seth a sophomore at Blackduck High school. He joined our J&L family in 2016 working a morning and evening shift on a pipeline repair site in our 1992 GMC Topkick, with no A/C, no air ride seats and he never complained! That is the kind of guy Steve is, he is a one in a million employee! He has alot of lifetime experience as he has been a former Sheriff Deputy, has owned a fiber optics company and a resort. He can figure anything out and takes responsibility and gets the job done. Steve is a huge part of our success!

Mark is one of our bulk truck drivers. He is an avid outdoorsman and loves hunting & fishing with his girlfriend Laurie and their dogs Blitz and Honey. He joined our J&L family in 2019, although he has been a part of Jay and Laurie's family since 2009. Jay was the head wrestling coach in Blackduck and Mark was a Senior on the team.
