This is the personal website of Jonathan LaCour.
Jonathan has been a technologist from a young age, teaching himself to program at the age of 14. After cutting his teeth with several smaller jobs, Jonathan began his professional career in Enterprise Healthcare in 1997, catapulting him into the culture of "software as a service" well before it became an industry buzzword. Jonathan harnessed his passion for technology and the cognitive process in his pursuit of a BS in Computer Science at Georgia Tech, with concentrations in psychology, cognitive science, and technology education. Armed with this interdisciplinary experience, Jonathan is keenly aware of how people learn and solve problems. When combined with his knowledge of technology, Jonathan is uniquely able to anticipate the needs of his customers.
In 2007, Jonathan helped found ShootQ, a web-based studio management solution for professional photographers, where he served as CTO. In 2010, ShootQ was acquired by Pictage, where Jonathan served as the Vice President of Software Products. Jonathan joined DreamHost in 2011 as Vice President of Software Development, bringing with him his experience and knowledge running engineering and product teams. In 2012, Jonathan became DreamHost's Vice President of Product and Development. In 2014, Jonathan took over the Cloud business unit at DreamHost as the Vice President of Cloud, and in late 2016 was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President of Product and Technology.
In January 2018, Jonathan joined Reliam as Chief Technology Officer. In October 2018, Reliam's merger with Stratalux and G2 Technology Group culminated in the launch of Mission, a leading AWS Consulting and Managed Services provider, where Jonathan serves as CTO. At Mission, Jonathan leads the Product, Platform, and Service Delivery teams to enable Mission to drive success for AWS customers.
When not hunkered down behind his laptop, Jonathan loves spending time with his beautiful and brilliantly creative wife, Lacey, his daughter Colette, his son William, and their two pugs, Nelson and Eliza. Beyond his culinary interests, Jonathan spends Saturday afternoons in the fall rooting for his alma mater and the University of Miami and enjoying his favorite southern creation - bourbon.
