I knew our website needed updating…like, for years I knew it….but kept putting it off. I wanted to be the do-it-yourselfer who could tackle the project alone. But being a full-time mom, business owner and freelancer, I could not manage to deal with the daunting task. Insert Jackson Whelan and Julie! I felt like we were friends instantly and that we all had the same goal. Their help rebuilding our website and managing the things that confused me (like SEO!), was the best gift I could give myself. Not only did the website live up to my creative ideas, but the functionality is seamless. I am so glad to have them on my team and to know they are there for me whenever I have a question going forward.

Jackson has proven to be imaginative, prompt and easy as can be to work with. While I happen to be a bit of a "Luddite", Jackson speaks in a technical but understandable manner. I'm more than glad to have JW on Team "Eat More Kale".

Jackson came highly recommended to Homeward Bound for his work with other area humane organizations. We engaged him to re-do our website and have been very pleased with the look, ease of use, and effectiveness of the new site. In particular we appreciated how he and Katie worked with us to streamline on our online giving opportunities. His pricing is fair and straightforward.

Working with Jackson is like adding 3 people to our team. It’s that valuable. Jackson’s technical savvy makes the outcome of his work -- the guest-facing side of the website – first-rate. But more importantly, Jackson makes the process to get there easy. He leads the project, while also really listening to what your goals and ideas are, talking them through with you, and working out the most efficient way to get it done. He’s respectful of budgets, and very much aware of the trust you put in him for his area of expertise. The most extraordinary thing about Jackson, though, is the support he provides. Whether a question of a ‘how do I do this?’, or ‘why is this happening?’, or ‘can we do this instead?’ – Jackson’s response is quick, and he always has the answer or knows where to find it. Knowing Jackson has our back helps us sleep at night!

I have been working with Jackson for over 5 years. In that time, he has become our go to web resource for not only our firm, but our clients. He is one of the best WordPress developers I have had the pleasure of working with. The quality of his coding and development is some of the most professional I have seen and his service level and responsiveness are always great.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jackson for over 10 years, and cannot sing his praises highly enough.
Jackson and I first worked together years ago on the website for my landscape design business, and for the last 7 years he has helped me through the design and recent relaunch of my blog – sherisilver.com. Jackson has been an invaluable resource for me, on so many levels. To start, he has a sophisticated aesthetic; I can count on and trust him to navigate the endless choices one faces when designing a website. My blog is a direct extension of who I am and what I want to present to the world; Jackson captured this beautifully.
Jackson is equally skilled at the “back end” of web design, creating a site for me that runs flawlessly, is easy to navigate on PC’s, phones and tablets, and has all the bells and whistles that anyone who comes to take a look would want. He is on top of the tiniest details as well as the big picture, and they all add up to a stylish and professional looking website. If there’s ever a problem, or I’d like to add/change/delete a feature, Jackson is ON IT. I couldn’t be happier.
Jackson has tremendous business acumen too, and I have benefitted from his honest and expert input on everything from conquering social media to creating a site that is specifically geared toward reaching potential sponsorship opportunities.
Finally, Jackson is delight to work with. He is responsive, ethical, accountable and invested. I consider myself lucky to have him in my corner as I continue to grow and build my brand; he is an integral and important partner in this process.

Fortunately for me, Jackson Whelan appeared when I needed him most. After many years of planing and earnestly honing my craft, I was about to make the scary leap to full time artist. Having been rejected from galleries, art school, and other traditional gatekeepers early in my career, blazing my own trail necessarily became standard operating procedure. To succeed however, I needed professional help to flesh out and implement an idea that I only hoped would work. Fast forward five years, and I can happily report that it did.
At the heart of my idea was a website that needed features and technical expertise well beyond average. I needed a user-friendly, rock-solid platform built for the long term on which I could literally stake my life on. Tall order indeed!
Working with Jackson over the course of our initial project implementation and to this day, was and continues to be a pleasure. I consider his contribution a key component of my success. Jackson has the rare combination of attributes and skills that combine to create success in today’s complex world. Creativity, technical expertise, entrepreneurship, professionalism, and enthusiasm are just some of the valuable assets Jackson brings to the table.

Working with Jackson and his team has been a smooth, collaborative process for our organization. Jackson always demonstrates professional excellence in his work, and his talents have helped launch our website to the next level. Communications were replied to in a timely fashion, with detailed responses to each item. Recommendations and tips were thoughtfully shared with a look to what was best to meet our needs. Jackson worked through his tasks expediently and helped shepherd the project to completion. We recommend Jackson Whelan for your website development needs.

My husband and I run our own business. When we needed help creating our business website, Jackson guided us through every step, making sure our website was attractive, efficient and professional while still reflecting the unique personality of our business. Over the years, we have relied on Jackson for assistance with email hosting, advertising, branding and design as well as keeping the content of our website fresh and current. He is unfailingly courteous and helpful.
When we decided to expand our online presence by adding a searchable online database with interactive customer service features, we discovered the true extent Jackson’s abilities! Our database has over 70,000 individual entries and our customers are from many countries where English is not a first language. Despite these challenges, Jackson not only created exactly what we wanted, he suggested additional features that we had not even considered. He built an uploader tool that allows us to edit our database directly on the server, so there is no delay in uploading information that our customers want. As our business has evolved, Jackson has continued to help us expand and upgrade our interactive online services.
Jackson Whelan has made our online presence what it is today. We had no idea where to start when we met him; he took our vision and made it reality. We are grateful that in addition to his computer and web design skills, he also has the patience and personal skills to listen to our thoughts and explain the options available…and a sense of humor on days when things go a little sideways.
