JM founder, Jonathan Patton, was recently invited to the Student Career Expo at the Mid America Center. It was the 3rd annual expo, and he spoke on entrepreneurialism and job opportunities in the Information Technology industry.
Here are some of Jonathan’s thoughts:
“It went very well actually. I’m exhausted though. It was four back to back presentations (with 5 minute breaks in between) and I’ve been up since 2:00am, since I wasn’t able to sleep due to being nervous (like I always do when speaking). I introduced myself to 400+ kids and then had about an attendance of 30-40 kids each session. I thought the presentations I did went well.”
Celebrate Catering is a growing company that needed a new online presence to communicate more accurately who they are. Since they are considered an atypical company in the catering market – one that specializes in custom and/or homemade recipes – JM really wanted to help them create their own unique niche market.
JM Web Designs was recently published in the Omaha Chamber‘s 2009 “Extraordinary Opportunities” magazine, highlighting owner Jonathan Patton’s journey as its founder and the case study about JM published by Microsoft. The magazine is sent out to companies around the world to show that Omaha is a great location to have a business.

International Gamco, Inc is North America’s premier manufacturer of pull-tab tickets. Incorporated in 1983, Gamco is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska with regional sales offices located throughout the United States. They came to JM Web Designs looking to showcase their professionalism through their web site, which required giving it a full makeover. We worked collaboratively to create an appealing website to and add the ability for Gamco to make their own updates.
JM is excited to announce that we are starting a web site project with the Nebraska Film Association [NFA] – an organized group of arts supporters, business leaders, specialized workers in the film industry, independent skilled professionals and others working to promote incentives for the film industry in Nebraska, thus bringing more money into the state – that will help to promote the group and their cause.

Part of building a successful growing company is bringing on the right people to fill necessary vacancies. Recently, JM filled two very important holes and we are excited to announce them to all of our friends and clients.
Recently, JM chose to have themselves mystery shopped in an effort to ensure our processes and check to see if we are giving the best service in the area. We would like to thank Cory Jensen, owner of I-Spy Mystery Shoppers, as well as the mystery shoppers for their effort and timely responses.
JM is proud to announce that our move into the new office is final and official! One of the things that excite us most about the new office is our opportunity to go GREEN.
