Hi, my name is Jeremy Yerse and I am a husband, systems and network administrator, and business owner.
During the day I get to work for Geneva College as the Systems and Network Administrator. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my wife, watching the Pittsburgh Penguins, playing hockey, developing websites, and riding my motorcycle. Over the past 10 years I have been creating websites and managing servers but recently decided to launch yersemedia.com. I enjoy helping other small business owners with website development, design, marketing, social media, SEO, hosting, backups and with any other technology questions they have. I am also a member at Air Heritage Inc. where I help with the website, computer networking, and with other odd jobs around the hangar.
