In 1999, Jess set out to start a Web Hosting Provider that would leverage innovative technologies while making them available to businesses in a way that was easy to understand, easy to use, and affordable. Experienced as a Web Developer and Web Server Administrator, Jess knew that he could help businesses succeed online and be not just a service provider, but a true online business partner.
Prior to founding Applied Innovations, Jess was an Electrical Engineer with Motorola and was employed there for close to a decade. At Motorola, he was a member of a research team that developed next generation digital communications systems. It was while at Motorola that Jess was introduced to the Internet and began his fascination with the Web during its infancy. He took that fascination and turned it into a passion that continues to drive the direction of Applied Innovations, which is now a recognized leader in Windows Hosting and specializes in ASP.NET, E-Commerce, Advanced Web Application Hosting, and Cloud Hosting.
In his spare time, Jess enjoys many of the things that made him a geek to begin with. That includes sexy new hardware, technological innovation, video games, and even the occasional comic book! When you can’t find him at the office (which admittedly is rare), you’ll likely find him at the grill or in front of his smoker getting ready for some lip-smacking ribs to enjoy with his wife and two kids.
