Jason has been invaluable!
We are now into our second year with Jostens, and Jason has proven himself to be invaluable. His expertise in the online software and other tools such as Photoshop have enabled him to help train my staff and to provide support when needed. More importantly perhaps, my students look forward to his visits because he is a genuine person and treats them as the young adults they are, valuing their thoughts and ideas.

Never had a rep so accessible!
In my years working with reps in education, I have never had one be as accessible (phone, text and email, at any hour I’ve needed him!), responsive, resourceful and collaborative. I am often approached by other publication companies, and frankly, I am so impressed by the functionality of the Jostens online program and with Jason, who so ably facilitates our use and exploration of these services, I am not even tempted to take a look at other options.

It’s been a pleasure!
..working with Jason Baranowski has been a pleasure. He is quick to reply to any questions, is both patient and professional with the sponsors and has an excellent rapport with the students. He has made learning Josten’s program so much easier than the previous program with which we worked, and has been willing to spend time training; in one-on-one sessions with the sponsors, and in large and small group trainings with the students.
