Co-Founder, Glass Smith
Jordan Jez is co-founder and Operations manager for Glass Smith located right here in Richmond, VA. Founded in early 2016 Glass Smith, now a multi state operation, seeks to make mobile device repair a whole lot easier. With a network of trained, certified, and equipped technicians, or “smiths” as they are commonly referred to, Glass Smith meets the customer wherever and whenever is best for them.
Jordan has an eye for efficiencies and looks to implement them wherever possible. Overseeing the roll out of two mobile applications, a website, a dashboard, and a network of technicians across multiple states has only reinforced the need for innovation and precise execution in Jordan’s mind. A recent graduate of Appalachian State Jordan has previously worked alongside co-founder Blue Crump as an analyst with Lumen Energy, a startup focused on energy efficiency.
In his first venture into the startup community Jordan and Glass Smith were selected to be apart of Lighthouse Labs 2016 Cohort, named a finalist for Village Capital’s Velocity Tour, named one of Richmond Magazines “People and Places to Watch in 2017”, received Richmond Technology Councils RVA Tech Gala People’s Choice Award, and most recently helped Glass Smith secure a $300K seed stage investment from local venture capitalists.
