MJO is incredibly proud of the hardworking, dedicated team that has been assembled to serve you. Each member brings their own special talents and has their own special story – get to know them.
After a long career in Data Processing, which included working at several Direct Mail agencies, David, with his wife Barbara, decided to branch out on their own and started MJO in 1994. His experience in Data Processing, coupled with his degree in Finance from the University of Baltimore, gave him the insight and knowledge base he needed to make this all come together. Born and raised in Canton (Baltimore City), David lives in Westminster with his wife Barbara and loves cooking for and spending time with her, his daughters and grandsons. David also loves to play (and watch) golf, and, thoroughly enjoys his new favorite pastime – supervising, as his grandsons do all his yard work!
Barbara’s first “real” job was doing administrative work for a Direct Mail agency. In fact, that is where she and David met. Learning all aspects of the direct mail business and developing superior customer service skills, gave her the perfect background and experience to complete the MJO dream. Barbara was born in Baltimore but fell in love with Westminster from the day she arrived. She is an avid Penn State football fan (WE ARE!!) and enjoys spending time with family and friends. She is an incredibly proud Mom of 2 beautiful girls and Nan of 3 pretty awesome boys.
Russ is the second longest MJO employee – hired in 1999. His solid background in IT made him a perfect fit for MJO. Through the years, he has honed his skills, and is constantly updating to the latest and most innovative industry standards to keep our systems and our customers files secure. In addition, Russ oversees all company-wide operations and is instrumental in implementing all new system updates. In his spare time, Russ loves to cook and has built quite the reputation of preparing unique and delicious dishes wherever he goes. He enjoys his daily cross fit workouts, running 5K and various obstacle races and he is an avid Penn State football fan. He and his wife, Michelle, live in Westminster with their Bassett Hound, Copper.

Frank lives in Westminster with his wife, Monica and their 3 kiddos, but his roots are in Pittsburgh. From the Steelers to the Pirates and the Penguins, Frank is a diehard fan!

As Head of Security, Max’s main responsibility is to protect the building from “his arch enemy” – any type of cat!. Since it is the ONLY time he barks, we know that he has the situation under control and the predator will quickly vacate the premises. In addition to Security, Max is also the “welcoming committee”. Upon arrival, visitors are always greeted with a smile and a wagging tail. In his spare time, Max loves being with his family, getting his belly rubbed, eating “bully” sticks and cheese, and napping….well mostly napping.
