Parents often leave a lasting mark on their child, which eventually manifests itself in the career choices they make in their lives. Be it a habit or discipline or fascinations for any instrument, game or technology, parents provide the basic building blocks for their child. For Mike Jarrell, CEO, Jarrell Systems, a software development firm; growing up surrounded by technology and gadgets became a way of life. Mike’s parents, Jim and Ann, were both programmers and business owners. Aspiring to be a technologist and an entrepreneur only came naturally to Mike.
