The Breeze Smartware Team

JAY JASO

– Founder/CEO

Jay interned in local government while a student at the University of California. He’s had 30 years of capital projects planning in the city manager’s office, in general aviation, and in public works. His innovative efforts and team-building skills have brought numerous local government awards. A decorated war veteran, he finds fulfillment in community-building and has founded two nonprofit startups (a community TV content provider + an international film festival). He’s an avid reader, and also enjoys biking, hiking, and writing.  “Our capital projects team helped bring many community-grown dreams to life. This inspired me to create a company that makes the CIP process smarter, better, faster.”

DYLAN JOHNSON

– Principal Programmer

Born in California and raised in the Silicon Valley, it’s no surprise that programming became Dylan’s passion, that he chose to major in Computer Science, and that he’s familiar with several programming languages. When not busy with exciting projects at Breeze Smartware, Dylan enjoys his free time tinkering with and thinking of new programming projects. He’s worked on Android and iOS apps, desktop applications, and even full-stack websites just for fun! He’s also an accomplished tennis player!

ISAIAH SALDATE

Isaiah has worked in challenging positions in various city departments, taking on complex administrative tasks. This has brought insight into financial, administrative, and workflow functions. He’s overseen the day-to-day operations of a city Indoor Recreation Center and has a passion for community-building and teamwork. His fascination for researching city/county capital project systems nationwide attracted him to the Breeze Smartware vision for changing how local governments do CIP planning.
