About Robert J. Jammer

Occupation: Owner, Jammer Innovative LLC (Advertising Agency)

Years in Gainesville: 23

Children: One son, Ramez (age 3)

He established a website ( with content of interest to

20-somethings and included video coupons (Deals) from businesses who subscribed. A year ago, The Gainesville Guardian did a feature article about Robert\'s efforts. He learned the power of Facebook and Twitter for his generation and began utilizing those tools in support of his clients.

Robert is convinced that a person without a job is more likely to be lost in the cycle of crime, welfare and despair. But struggling businesses barely survive, much less thrive enough to hire someone. So, he set about to develop a more powerful stage!

In May of this year, Robert launched Jammer Innovative LLC, an advertising agency with the mission to make television advertising accessible and affordable for all! He worked out deals with participating local broadcasters to provide air time and pioneered a concept to produce quality commercials economically. Robert makes it possible for the tiniest of businesses to be on televison everyday for as little as $250!

One local TV station became so impressed with his vision and creativity, they have asked him to produce weekly segments of local interest to be aired multiple times a week. He is determined to use his communication skills as a spokesman for businesses so small they could never dream of any advertising - much less on televison!

The awards have not yet come to Robert. The financial rewards are only a distant hope. But the success is indisputable!

Multiple businesses are advertising on TV today who could never have afforded it before! And when that 30 second spot is airing - their company is as big as GEICO!

If only you could see the business owners\' faces and feel their pride, you would know for sure that Robert Jammer is contributing powerfully to his community in one of the most unique ways ever envisioned.

An unlikely local hero, Robert Jammer may just be developing a model of economic growth worthy of notice by the enire nation!
