2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty engineer Aaron Bresky has dream job

Aaron Bresky, now 50, still remembers that 7th grade classroom moment on Career Day so long ago.

“A lot of people were presenting, saying they were going to be doctors and lawyers, and I stood up and said, ‘I want to be an engineer at Ford working on trucks,'” Bresky said. “When I did that, my class and teacher started laughing. I asked them, ‘What are you laughing at?'”

His teacher at Jefferson Middle School in St. Clair Shores didn’t skip a beat, he recalled. “She said, ‘That’s great, Aaron. But it’s pretty specific. I know you’d like to work on Ford trucks, but you can’t just say that and it’ll happen.”

Yet, that’s exactly what happened.

This is the story of a little boy who fell in love with the Ford pickup while helping his grandpa plow snow during cold Michigan winters and who, this week, traveled to Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky to watch the unveiling of the 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks he helped bring to life. The truck series, which will go on sale early next year, is built by UAW members at the Kentucky Truck Plant nearby, as well as the Ohio Assembly Plant in Avon Lake.
