Behind the Scenes at Buzztime with Jonathan Velasco
At Buzztime, we have a wide array of interesting, fun and passionate employees that all play a significant role in perfecting our product and keeping our customers happy! We’d love to give you the chance to take a peek behind the scenes at who exactly these amazing people are.
Jon is our Lead Technical Support Representative here at Buzztime, which means he spends the majority of his day on the phone with customers and players answering questions and helping to improve their Buzztime experience. He has been with the company for over 9 years and enjoys the rewarding challenge of helping people with a wide variety of issues faced on a daily basis. Jon has a wife and three daughters, who are all named after flowers (Lilly, Iris, and Daisy). He is also a big football fan, and recently started putting models of classic cars together as a hobby. He loves to spend his free time relaxing and hanging out with friends and family, just laughing and having a good time. Jon has been a positive influence to those around him with his positive attitude and easy going nature, and even received a community hero award from the city of Oceanside for helping stop gang violence through creative and artistic means.
