Bob Jaffe is the founder and head of Cedar Mountain Software. He began his IT professional career in 1992 with a Jaffe Computer Services flyer printed off at home. He then went from door to door in downtown Missoula. His clients loved his honesty and strong work ethic. Jaffe Computer Services merged into Lantel Integrated Solutions for several years and then back to Jaffe Computer Services as the industry shifted dramatically in the mid-1990s.
With the internet taking on a dominant role in modern business, Bob reached out of basic computer support into custom programming and database design. And so in 2002, he developed Cedar Mountain Software with a focus on web-based solutions for businesses. While adding clients and employees to the company, Bob has kept an eye on the future of the consistently evolving tech world and his focus on helping real people.
Bob served on the Missoula City Council from 2006 – 2013 and created the popular Missoulagov.org blog. He enjoys his busy life raising three boys with his wife and goofy little dog.
Beth Jaffe developed her own independent study program in computer graphics and animation at Cornell University in the late ’80s/early ’90s. She then morphed into a free spirit seeking adventure on the road and throughout the Rocky Mountains even up into the Yukon Territory.
She eventually settled in Missoula in 1995, started making websites in 1997, and helped Bob start up Cedar Mountain Software in 2002. Though Beth spends a lot of her passion being a mother, an activist, and an artist, she is comfortable and confident making clients happy with her light hearted approach to dealing with technology and making fantastic websites that anyone can maintain.
Beth uses our walls here at the Mountain as her private art gallery. Stop by to see the art in person or visit her horribly neglected personal website. BethJaffe.com
