Who founded Transform Me, Inc.?
Charles K. Jessup (a.k.a. Chuck)
is the President,
"front man" and majority owner/investor who developed the original
Transform Me, Inc. business model, after spending 25 years working for Qwest
Information Technologies, both as a "Project Manager" and "Software Engineer"
and two and one half years as President and CEO of
Nektonic, Inc./NTI Racing.
Before retiring from Qwest IT, Charles worked on a vast number of complex DP and business
related projects, large and small. He has been the majority owner and CEO of two other
corporations (Logical Options, Inc. and Nektonic, Inc.) prior to forming Transform Me, Inc.
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Oregon in Computer Science
and Business Management. Charles has also attained two Associate degrees in Science and
Art and certification in dozens of management level fields of study. Charles has clocked over 30+ years
of business, IT, educator/mentor, private pilot, performance driving instructor, and competition road
racing related experiences. Having written many educational articles and corporate in house publications,
Charles is a firm supporter of education opportunities giving people a jump start in the worlds of both
business and FUN. Having also taught classes in a business school environment, he loves teaching, organizing
on the job cross training efforts, and helping others grow in a supportive working environment.
Likewise, Charles spends nearly all his free time researching new technologies, learning new skills he
needs to help grow his small businesses and seeking ways to help other businesses meet their own goals
and objectives as well. Charles believes that learning, understanding, and fine tuning things that do
not work quite right are job one.

Quintin holds an MBA and a BS degree from Seattle University. Spanning over 30 years as a professional,
Quintin has owned businesses established by both him and his wife, and has sat on the Boards of several
legal entities. Quintin strongly believes in the value of education and has volunteered his time and resources
to community groups helping high school students get a good beginning in the professional world. Starting his
career as a "Programmer/Analyst", Quintin rose his way through the ranks of corporate America and has
a solid foundation in Information Systems applications design and implementation. More recently, Quintin
has worked as a "Consultant" in the capacity of "IT Business Analyst" for both retail and eCommerce applications
at various major companies in the Northwest, applying the principles of "Lean Six Sigma". Quintin and Charles
met when teaming up to work on large projects at Pacific NW Bell/U S West/Qwest, subsequently becoming close
friends and associates; they have been in close contact for decades as a result. So, he was a natural
choice when Charles asked Quintin to serve on the Board of Directors and as Vice President of Transform Me, Inc.
in order to balance out the leadership of the company and to make sure Transform Me, Inc. had a well rounded
management team at the top.
