The Story of Ramblin Jackson
Now who in Sam Hill is Ramblin Jackson, anyhow, and what makes em so ramblin’? Well, let’s start from the beginning.
Time was, back in 2008, Jack Jostes was fresh out of college with a communication degree and the hopes of becoming a newspaperman and professional musician. After graduating from Marquette University, he packed up his wagon (used Pontiac minivan) and headed west from Milwaukee, WI to Boulder, CO with a rock-and-roll band, The Joint Chiefs of Staff. Somewhere along the way the stock market crashed, Rocky Mountain News went out of business, and communication changed forever. So much for that newspaperman idea. Instead, Jack ended up doing door-to-door sales as a milkman for a dairy farm in Longmont. No joke, a real live milkman with a little milkman suit and a two-ton box truck full of glass bottles. When he went on a short tour to California with the band, the sales manager at the dairy farm asked, “now, will you be coming back, or are you a ramblin’ man?” The moniker never left, and on that tour, Jack realized he wanted to open shop on his own — sling’n words and marketing ideas to local businesses instead of milk bottles to babies’ mamas. And when he returned from that fateful tour to California, he started Ramblin Jackson as a Sole Proprietor in the spring of 2009.
Meanwhile, Chris Woodley was nearly 20 years into his career in the video production industry. During his work for major news networks and corporate clients, he developed his craft as a cameraman, editor, director, and field producer. But after a while, the same old news became the same old news, and Chris wanted to flex his creative muscle. With the growing demand for web video, Chris knew he needed to find one of them internet weirdos to help him get his clients’ videos on YouTube and social networks — and when he met Jack, he knew there was some potential havoc to bring to the small business rodeo of his native Boulder.
After a year and a half of collaborating on projects, Jack and Chris officially partnered and created Ramblin Jackson, Inc. in May of 2011. Since then, they’ve added several new ramblers to our team to create a social media + video marketing agency.
