Victoria: Hello everyone, and welcome to the Nel PreTech blog! Today, we have the pleasure of sitting down with Jason Johnson, a valued member of our team. Jason, thank you for joining us today.


Jason: Thank you, Victoria. It's great to be here.


Victoria: Let's dive right in. Could you tell us a bit about your educational background and how it led you to Nel PreTech Corporation?


Jason: Sure. I graduated from the University ofIllinois at Chicago with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, followed by a master’s degree in computer science from Governor’s State University. During my time at UIC, I also served in the Air National Guard. It was at this point I began at Nel PreTech Corporation, initially starting part-time while pursuing my degree and then transitioning to a full-time role after graduation.


Victoria: Thank you for your service! Can you walk us through your career progression at NPC?


Jason: Sure. I began my journey at NPC as a CMM and Vision system operator, gradually taking on additional responsibilities over the years. Today, I oversee critical operations involving CMMs, Vision Systems, CT, and Blue Light scanners. I also serve as the Quality Manager, ensuring adherence to our Quality System and ISO 17025 accreditation. As the company's IT specialist, I contribute to the development and maintenance of our customer and job tracking software.


Victoria: Your role sounds multifaceted and crucial to NPC's operations. Outside of work, what interests and activities do you like to take part in?


Jason: I spend quality time with my wife and two children, exploring new adventures with them. I'm also an avid reader and fan of Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres, which allows me to escape into different worlds. I also like to go on late-night movie outings with my brother. And to stay active, I participate in local 5k or 10k running events whenever I can.


Victoria: It sounds like you have a well-rounded life both inside and outside of work. Before we wrap up, could you share a unique experience or fun fact about yourself?


Jason: Well, one memorable experience was navigating a situation involving law enforcement when my house was raided by the Will County SWAT team due to a white-collar incident involving my roommate. On a lighter note, I have a playful side and enjoy pulling off elaborate pranks. I like to inject a little humor and camaraderie into the workplace environment.


Victoria: Thank you for sharing, Jason. It's been a pleasure getting to know more about you and your journey at Nel PreTech Corporation.


Jason: Thanks for having me. I appreciate the opportunity to share my story.
