MEET OUR TEAM

JADEN GARZA, CEO

Jaden has had an interest and natural talent for technology solutions since his adolescent years. Having run several successful IT solution and technology companies, starting when he was just 18,  HXO is Jaden’s passion project at full capacity. 

 

As a co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jaden and his wife Jessica began an internet company servicing RV parks in the state of Texas in 2017. The primary objective was to bridge the digital divide that many rural areas experience. Jaden found that WiFi systems in RV parks were terrible and took away opportunities from travelers or full time residents who lived in these parks. The lack of connectivity made school and work opportunities nearly impossible for these families, so Jaden set out to change that, one RV park at a time. 

 

With his years of prior experience starting and running a successful WISP, Jaden used the same hub and spoke design he had used to build out rural towns, scaling the model to fit the need of each individual park. While operations were, at first, limited to the structures of the park, Jaden would eventually create efficiencies by erecting his own poles to follow the exact network design he envisioned, incorporating licensed LTE using BaiCells technology to create faster and better networks. The Summer of 2017 marked Jaden’s first successful installation. For the first time ever, this park could connect their laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and game consoles all at once. It was now possible for this community to work, go to school, and for the owners to run their business appropriately.

  

Being responsible for peoples’ livelihoods was so satisfying for Jaden. He has countless stories from people on how the WiFi networks he designed have changed their lives. Jaden is bridging the gap of Internet access in areas where larger providers choose to ignore “last mile” customers. Believing last mile and rural customers deserve to have the same quality of Internet as rural residents, Jaden’s passion is clear and simple. Getting people connected is a worthy cause worth fighting for and is his life’s passion. 

 

HXO Corporation is a culmination of similarly designed brands that strive to address gaps in technology, housing, and opportunities for children in underprivileged homes. Jaden’s newest venture is an extension of his passion for helping people, and intended to house a family of brands that seek to help their communities.

JESSICA GARZA, Co-Founder

Jessica Garza has always had a heart for the underdog. She decided to take this passion for helping others in need when she joined her husband in the challenge to make the internet accessible for everyone regardless of where they lived or how they lived. She fought through melting suns, endless nights, and complete darkness with her own two hands to make sure that their equipment would work for those who needed it. She started this journey in 2017 when they created their first network in a RV park located in Johnson City. It was here that the idea of Nomad was born. 

 

Jessica continued on with her pursuit of helping others, by starting her own company called Jappa and Jaga, a property management group. The goal, combined with her own passion for the city of Bulverde, is to bring new opportunities to the city and beyond it. Jessica manages not only her own company but works side by side with her husband in creating a lasting impression for the community that there are people who will work with everything they have to make sure that others can succeed. To ensure that there will never again be those who have to go without connection to the outside world.

JEFF PARKER, Lead Programmer

Jeff Parker has always known the world of code. Some say it started when he first played Doom, others say it started when he was handed his first computer at 12. If only the world knew what would be unleashed. Starting from creating add-ons to the crowd favorite Doom to creating his own RPG games from the ground up, Jeff has always been interested in creating what is unknown or unheard of. Taking this passion for the unknown he pushed himself through school and onto Trade Shows and convention centers focusing on Fiber Optics. 

 

Always on the hunt for new challenges, Jeff traveled all over the US helping organizations and businesses not only understand the technology but creating systems that allowed for even the most technologically challenged to operate. Jeff has always looked for the next challenge and now he’s facing his most challenging yet, bringing the internet to those who don’t have access. Teaming up with long time friend, Jaden Garza, Jeff is excited to see what new solutions he can find for helping those in need.

EMILY BURATOWSKI, 
Executive Assistant to the CEO

Emily began her career in customer service as a teenager, having always had an interest in people and finding ways to help others. As a military kid, and the oldest of four children, Emily learned from an early age how to quickly navigate new schools, friends, and communities, and how to be a leader, granting her the ability to quickly get to know people and build relationships; skills she brings to her role every day.

 

Taking her interest in people and business with her, Emily received a degree in Human Resource Management and Economics from Baylor University. Starting with personnel and HR type roles out of college, she moved on to handling insurance claims, quickly promoting herself into large injury settlements and attorney negotiations. Here Emily was able to expand upon her negotiation skills, strategically listening to what was being presented and using data to make informed decisions. This additional skillset led to leadership positions and mentorship opportunities, and eventually led to her role as an Operations Manager for GEV.

 

Emily currently operates as the Executive Assistant to the CEO through HXO Corporation, and is inspired to see this corporation grow to house brands that have a true commitment to the communities they serve. With hard work and a dedication to doing the right thing, she brings energy to the team and keeps the day to day operations organized to allow others to focus on the big picture.
