Founder and President
Jerry began using computers at the age of 11, starting out on a TI-99/4A. He would often rewrite the computer games, he and his brothers would play, to gain a better advantage over them in the game. Later, during the winter of 1991 Jerry began his trek into the world of donations when he built his first computer, a Digital Vax Station II, the computer was given to Scott Newman of Culver who used it to establish a local BBS, for which Jerry received nothing from Scott in return. During the same year Jerry's father gave him a broken I.B.M. compatible XT computer that he soon fixed and began using as a learning tool to help build and fix others computers.
Jerry began to fix and build numerous computers for family, friends, and nearly anyone who he found with a need for a computer. Jerry not only built computers but set to learn nearly every Information Technology science computers are being used for today, like hardware, software, networking, Internet, and multimedia technologies. Jerry continued to further develop his I.T. skills alone until the year 2000 when two major milestones for him took place. The first was Jerry began college at I.T.T. in Fort Wayne for Computer Networking Systems Technology for which he later graduated with an associates degree. The second is when he discovered the Linux operating system. Until 2000 Jerry had not known of the Linux operating system and was amazed at its abilities to facilitate learning Information Technologies.
After graduating from college Jerry applied his I.T. knowledge at numerous places for free, such as DNS Online his Internet Service Provider, First Baptist Church of Plymouth, and Rachel's Home a Pregnancy Home in Plymouth, while continuing to provide free I.T. solutions to individuals.
Then in the summer of 2009 Jerry ran across a document overview of how to establish a Non-Profit organization and has taken up the effort to establish the Indiana Non-Profit Information Technology Organization or "INPITO" to continue and expand on the great ideals of providing Information Technology solutions to people and organizations that are in need of these solutions.
