OUR BRAND STORY
JEJO (‘jay jo’) was formed in 2002 by John Dickerson. That just about makes us an adult now we’re 18+.
Our name comes from the two initial letters of John’s name, his partner’s, and the pet cats JEssica and JOsie. So, it’s a personal passionate foundation with it’s own identity.
John was born in Suffolk, UK. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Physics, a Master’s degree in Business Administration. His early career was focussed on semiconductor research & programming factory systems, which has taken him across the globe. When John was executing experiements, he became aware and applied the computers in the same lab to his work. Experiments became automated and with real-time graphical presentation of data. As well as these interests, John loves to cycle locally and touring international, sail, and hike or just travel especially in Asia. His dream is to sail from the UK eventually to New Zealand and everwhere inbetween.
John is good at sensing the real-world potential and the underbelly of technology. John admires Japan’s engineering power; the red dot in Jejo’s logo was inspired from the Japanese flag.
