Jason Franco is a dedicated husband, father, entrepreneur and president of JVF Consulting. He entered the world of computing at the age of 15 when he began creating custom applications that enhanced service offerings for the Bulletin Board community. He received his formal education from the University of the Pacific, where he met his lovely wife Melissa.
In addition to his formal training, he has worked for both small companies and large corporations, honing his professional skills by continually building on his development knowledge, people skills and sales experience. During all of his training he learned the importance of mastering the fundamentals of problem solving and not just syntax, because almost everything can be referenced. He also knows that only learning rigid steps to solving problems does not allow one to think outside the box, allowing them to challenge themselves, take risks and learn valuable lessons.
Throughout all his endeavors he continually felt something lacking from most of his experiences. He joined a mentorship program called, Integrity in Business Development and the first step in the great journey has begun. His son Jack Victor Franco (JVF) was born shortly after the program started and his world has opened up to countless possibilities for his relationships, his goals and his business ventures.
Melissa Franco - Finance Officer
Melissa grew up in the sticks. A little town called Arbuckle. And they didn't even live in town, they lived 5 miles outside of town on a one lane road where cable television wouldn't go. Some people would see this as a wonderfully relaxing and quiet way to live. Melissa isn't one of those people. This is why she now choses to live in the busy town of Dublin, only inches away from her neighbors, with a postage stamp sized backyard, and not a stick in site.
