About Jerry J. Jansen – Vehicles and Computers are my hobbies

My Home

Hi there! My name is Jerry J. Jansen and I am a computer programmer/developer/webmaster, electronic technician, instructor, career development course writer, a Titan II ICBM engine technician and a DIY’r.

I am married to my wife Gina since 1991 after I asked her to marry me on our first date and two weeks later we were married. I have four children, James, Roger, David, and Jennifer. Gina has two children, Cenac and Kissy. We have a total of ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Our home pictured above is a 3 Bedroom, Study, 2 Bath, Laundry Room, Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, 2 Car Garage, with an add-on Garden Room and a total of 2000 Sq Ft. I have replaced all of the windows with energy efficient windows, added wood flooring to most of the living areas, added glazed porcelain floor tile to the office, and back garden room. Added travertine wall and floor tile to the kitchen and master bedroom window sills. We added one gazebo and one pergola in the back yard and an outdoor kitchen, and a hot tub. I have my back yard fully populated with concrete blocks so I have no grass to mow in the backyard.

I am retired as a Developer/Webmaster in the Information Systems Division for the Oklahoma House of Representatives after 24 and 1/2 years. I wrote and maintained about 20+ computer programs written in Microsoft’s Visual Basic ASP.NET, and Visual FoxPro Professional for my employer. I also wrote and maintain an internal intranet web site written in DotNetNuke framework. I wrote the very first web site for my employer over 15 years ago and I maintained their two external VB ASP .NET version 3.5 web sites and six internal VB ASP.NET version 4.5 web sites..

I graduated from Lewis Central High School in Council Bluffs, Iowa in 1964. I then attended Northwest Missouri State College in Maryville, MO. for two years before joining the United States Air Force in 1966. While in the Air Force I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Occupational Education from Wayland Baptist University and a Associate in Applied Science from the Community College of the Air Force.

I am retired from the U.S. Air Force after twenty years as a Titan II Missile Engine Technician, Instructor, and Career Development Course Technical Writer. I was stationed at Davis Monthan AFB, Tucson, AZ (5 years) and at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, TX. (15 years) where I retired in 1986 after 20 years of service.

I started the first Computer Club in Wichita Falls, Texas back when Radio Shack came out with their first TRS-80 computer system. I was working for Radio Shack part time and I purchased the very first system in Wichita Falls, TX. I also got into computer programming and I wrote the very first Insurance Homeowners Rating and Policy printing program for Beacon National Insurance Company. I also wrote a program for Wichita Falls Crime Stoppers Division of Wichita Falls Police Department and sold many copies in Texas, Nationwide, and a few International. I have written many computer programs for many different businesses and many different types of businesses throughout my 40 plus years of programming and development.

I also got into electronic repair while stationed at Sheppard AFB in Texas and became a partner in Stereo Service Center in Wichita Falls, Texas. We then expanded and changed the name to Video-Stereo Service Center where we also repaired VCRs, TVs, and other electronic devices. We were also the warranty repair station for over 40 name brand electronic companies. Then I moved to Del City, OK where I owned Del City Electronics and worked out of Del City Music where I repaired musical instruments and sound systems for about five years. Then I got my job at Oklahoma House of Representatives.
