Senior Graphic Designer
Not much is known about this elusive man. It is said that he was recently married.
Those tales can only be heard around campfires, surrounded by wild violets, late in the night. While at JCI, he adds a much needed element of mystery and intrigue as no one really knows where or when he was born, what language he speaks or the correct pronunciation of his last name. We have come to rely on him for his obvious talent in illustration and creative thinking. We hope to learn more about this bearded character in the future.
Now residing in California, Shannon grew up in the great American Midwest.
She loves all things "media," including music, film, photography, web & graphic design. Having a passion to travel and impact peoples lives, she sees herself one day traveling the world as a "visual storyteller" - making short films, documentaries and the world a better place through her all-around awesomeness.
Jessi brings the excited pep to the office. She also brings in more sass than anyone else.
Not unlike other members of the JCI team, Jessi is not originally from California but moved here from Nebraska in 2008.
She also has quickly picked up her role as the office little sister taking jokes from her bigger brothers. She's known to call you out for random disney songs, listen to rock, and help pick up the slack in anyway she can. In her off time, she kills it being a mom to her 2-year old daughter Gracelyn, loves to cook, and plans to travel the world hiking to beautiful new areas.

Abram has 9 years of graphic design mixed with web experience and loves serving people and taking their dreams to a level beyond what they can image.
Originally from South Carolina, Benji studied marketing for four years at Clemson University. Go tigers.
But after landing a corporate sales job, he realized he would have to choose between a cubicle and his dreams. So, he quit. That started the journey of moving to California and soon joining the team at JCI. Since then he’s been our go-to guy for inbound marketing, content strategy, and all things writing. He’s a simple man, carrying peace and integrity - an asset to any team.
