OUR PARTNERS

digitalJ2’s Story

digitalJ2’s story started on New Year’s Day in Florida. At the time, John was running an international deep-ocean exploration company. His son, Etienne (first name John), planned on going to graduate school to get his MBA. On that day, they both decided to head to Tennessee and do some rock climbing. Now mind you, this is in the dead of winter.

At the end of the first day of climbing a few pitches, they were walking back to their tent and Etienne informed John that he decided to not attend graduate school. As a father, John was stunned. This was a goal he worked hard on for quite some time. 

Etienne then told John that he did the math on student loan debt and found that following graduation, he would need to get a job to pay off that debt. He went on to tell John that he didn’t want a job. He wanted a business. John immediately responded with, “Let’s start a business.”

Once they returned home to Florida, they sat down at the kitchen table and formed digitalJ2. They knew that the future was digital, and the J2 stood for the two Johns. 

A new business began.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled about my decision. Since that time, we’ve built an outstanding team with the mission and passion for helping our customers grow and to make those who believed in us look brilliant. The future is bright, and our ability to fuel growth for the customers we serve continues to grow every day.” – John Turner
