Jefferson is the principal programmer of Passage Express software. He has been fascinated with software engineering from a young age. Raised in Utah, he comes from a heritage of genealogists and family historians. 

 

When his mother, Loretta, completed a personal history of her parents, she wanted a way to share digital copies of the book and pictures to go along with printed copies. She wanted something nicer to hand out than files on a backup CD.  Jon (father) envisioned a nice user-friendly menu and interface to access the files. Jefferson then created a custom menu and picture viewing application for that project. Soon requests came in from people asking to be able to do the same with their own projects. Accommodating them was the birth of Passage Express software.
