20 Under 40: Jared Swezey

Chief Technology Officer, UpTime Sciences

Principal, Comscend

Age: 31

From being involved with the project to bring the first fiber connections to John F. Kennedy Airport to working with global business leaders to plan and implement digital transformation, I have had great opportunities to learn from the best in my field. I actively look for ways that I can use those experiences to benefit my involvement in local growth. I have had the privilege of being involved with many great organizations, including Parenting Now!, Eugene Science Center, Computer Science Regional Advisory Committee and Hack For A Cause that are making a vital impact on our community. It is my mission to further STEM education and technical knowledge through my involvement in these organizations and sharing useful information in the column I write for The Register-Guard.

In a city that is continuing to step up to the international stage and be recognized for our efforts to make the place we live a better place, I continue to be inspired by my peers in the tech and business communities. I am grateful to be recognized as a part of this forward-thinking community and I look forward to achieving more success together.
