Congratulations to this month’s Member Spotlight: York Electronic Systems, Inc.
YES. A Legacy of Excellence, Service and Community Spirit
In 1984, when husband and wife team Steve and Judi York started their business, they really wanted a name that conveyed something special. Steve York brainstormed and knew that he needed to represent “a positive approach to professional service. What is more positive than YES?” says retired CEO, Steve York. From that moment, York Electronic Systems was born.
YES has emerged as one of the top systems integration firms in the southwest and is now 100% Native American/Woman Owned Company with the York’s daughter, Jennifer Jezek at the helm. YES specializes in design, management and maintenance of fire, life safety, security, communications and audio visual systems for Healthcare, Education, Commercial and Hospitality Industries.
Now nearly 30 years later, their daughter, Jennifer Jezek, continues their legacy of service and community. “I always tell people we are a Golden Rule company – we really believe in treating others how we want to be treated.” From customers to fellow employees, YES has many long-standing relationships because of shared values including company Vice President and 29 year YES veteran, Jamie Ogle who believes “our solutions both protect and enhance clients’ lives.”
Since the company’s inception, YES has supported the community through financial support and volunteerism. In the last decade, YES has supported over 100 charities and contributed over $150,000 in dollars; not including in-kind contributions and time. This is no small feat for a company with 35 employees. These contributions are extended to community organizations and in support those in need including the Community Food Bank, DVIS, Junior Achievement and Partners In Education.
YES was named in 2008 as Tulsa Metro Chamber’s Family Owned Business of the Year and the 2010 SBA of Oklahoma Family Owned Business of the Year.
