Jay

CEO

While working as a UPS Driver in the 90’s Jay took a side interest in PC gaming and hardware. The desire to learn more brought opportunities to work for a National Computer Company that needed a Warehouse/Inventory person. That was the perfect time to branch out and start something new.
 
With a few years spent working for National Brands, he saw the need for a Northwest IT Supplier, built for local needs. With help and advice from many friends and colleagues Jay started U-PC Wholesale in the summer of 2000 and moved into its current location the next year.
 
With 24 Years of hands-on IT Hardware experience Jay is a leader in the local IT industry. His passion for the field and eye for detail has put U-PC where it is today.
