JFM Web Design, LLC is the creation of Jon Martin. His interest in websites started in 1994 at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). In the physics building; Jon and fellow triathlete and friend Gary Wang designed and built the first UCSB Triathlon Club website. They were both interested in the “information super highway” and fulfilling the need to have a central place where triathlon club members could find information about meetings and races. They were not sure who would see it, but soon discovered that it was an excellent way for members to communicate and learn about triathlons. This is where the Jon’s passion for building and designing websites all started.
After graduating, Jon worked for a private stock trader and built websites on the side for triathlon based businesses including bike companies, bike shops, local triathlon coaches, and events. Since the creation of JFM Web Design, LLC in 2000 the clientele has expanded to a broad range of non-profit organizations, professionals, artists and local and national businesses.
