“Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.”

This quote by Steve Jobs profoundly encapsulates the essence of Jason Christley’s contributions to Homeowners Financial Group. As we celebrate his 2-year Homieversary this month, it’s evident that Jason’s role transcends that of a mere technician; he is a facilitator of success and innovation within our organization.

At its core, Jobs’ quote highlights the instrumental role of belief in human potential and the transformative power of the right tools. This philosophy is a mirror to Jason’s approach to service delivery, where technology is leveraged not just as a set of devices and software but as a means to enable, empower, and inspire his colleagues to achieve their best. VP of Technology, Lee Tenopala, summarizes this outlook, “Jason consistently surpasses expectations with his exceptional attitude and dedication, fostering a positive work environment. His eagerness to help others and his passion for learning, highlight his versatility and creativity. Jason’s contributions to the team are invaluable, and his commitment to excellence sets a standard for all homies.”

Jason adeptly manages a range of technical tasks, from installing and configuring hardware and software to diligently responding to and documenting help desk tickets in line with SLA guidelines. His comprehensive support includes providing both remote and on-site assistance, training new hires, setting up workstations, troubleshooting issues, and ensuring customer satisfaction through thorough follow-ups and effective communication of feedback within the team. However, his service extends beyond the confines of traditional IT support of fixing technical glitches; rather, he proactively anticipates and addresses the broader needs of his colleagues, ensuring they are equipped with the tools and knowledge to excel. Whether it’s providing essential IT mastery, or volunteering for the corporate move team, Jason’s actions reflect a deep commitment to serving others. His efforts are underpinned by a firm belief in his colleagues’ potential to achieve wonderful things, given the right support and resources.

Jason’s philosophy of service extends beyond merely meeting technological needs. His readiness to assist in any capacity as Rose Dinglasan, Manager of Business Services, explains his recent volunteering for a big-time company event expressing, “I experienced firsthand Jason’s dedication, hard work and attention to detail during the big Corporate move. He was always there to lend a hand with a positive attitude. When I assigned a task to him, I knew it would be done. I never had to ask twice. He is not your average IT guy. He goes above and beyond on a regular basis.” Anywhere from moving equipment during the office relocation to politely asking another Homie to restart their computer, he demonstrates his understanding that creating a positive, supportive environment is just as vital as resolving technical issues. This holistic approach to service, viewing every interaction as an opportunity to assist, uplift, and empower, highlights the broader implications of Jobs’ quote in Jason’s day-to-day actions.

When Jason steps away from his role at Homeowners, he immerses himself in a world that is just as rich and diverse as his professional life. He cherishes the moments spent with his girlfriend Kate, finding joy in the lively company of their two pugs, Penny and Lottie, whose antics bring warmth and laughter to their home. A self-proclaimed coffee enthusiast, Jason’s passion for a rich brew was evident at his last office where he had his very own espresso machine, a hub for both great coffee and conversation generally about musical interests. His intellectual curiosity doesn’t rest, as he’s currently embracing the challenge of learning French and also diligently working toward his Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at Arizona State University, a testament to his commitment to continuous learning and growth.

Jason’s approach cultivates a culture of collaboration, innovation, and mutual support within Homeowners Financial Group. Margo Cobb, Senior Graphic Designer paints the portrait of our Highlight, “In today’s business environment where technology is constantly changing, Jason’s expertise and dedication are invaluable. His efforts behind the scenes ensure that our workstations run smoothly, allowing all of us to focus on our projects with confidence. It’s a privilege to work alongside someone who not only excels in their role but also uplifts those around them. Thank you for being an integral part of Homeowners and for your unwavering commitment to excellence.” By living the belief that equipping people with the right tools and support leads to extraordinary outcomes, Jason not only boosts our operational efficiency and effectiveness but also fosters a work environment where every Homie is encouraged to give their best. We are certain we have the best in Jason and look forward to ongoing support of his personal growth and development in all aspects of life.
