JJ designed and developed an iOS content distribution app, which has replaced flight manuals, charts and company documents for leading airlines. It was even featured on the Apple business website.
Small wonder that he accelerated rapidly at his previous position, where he ultimately led a team of local and international developers. Sharp and gifted at leadership though he is, he humbly credits his parents for his skills at motivating people and persuading others. (He can also thank his dad and grandpa for passing along the name John, leading to his nickname, which occasionally gets shortened to “Jage.”)
When JJ isn’t breaking ground with his programming skills, he wouldn’t mind polishing off an entire bag of pretzels while watching the (the original) Star Wars trilogy in one sitting. However, that interest has lately been superseded by his latest hobby - fixing up his new sailboat. He’s hoping it will be ready to hit the water by spring. That is, if he doesn’t a random call from NASA that they for some reason need him as an astronaut.
