The Founders

Jessica Valenzuela,
co-founder, CEO

A naturalized American citizen with heritage from the Philippines, Jessica brings 15 years of experience working with enterprise companies and global brands to deliver mobile, eCommerce and digital media solutions. A natural entrepreneur, she’s helped build online universities, launched brands for Gwen Stefani, and delivered mobile content solutions for Fortune 500 and 1000 companies. Jessica is resilient, imaginative and curious. She loves working on products that enrich people’s life experiences, solve inefficiencies, and deliver positive impact on the bottom line.

When asked what has been her most interesting learning experience from GoGoGuest, Jessica said: “I never thought I’d be learning so much about payments processing, fund flows and enriching in-store commerce experiences with a combination of Wi-Fi technology, data sets and algorithms.”  


With a company culture grounded on a blend of strong work ethic, self-management, and living life, Jessica spends her leisure time traveling, snowboarding, hiking, boxing/kickboxing or exploring local coffee shops, craft brew pubs and restaurants. She’s also self-enrolled in a number of courses including iOS app development, HTML/CSS, writing, and plans to add more courses down the road. She also co-parents her adorable Jack Russell Terrier, Mister Beckham.

 

Christopher O’Connor,
Technical co-founder, CTO

A natural entrepreneur and builder, Chris brings over 15 years of experience delivering results for startups and Fortune 500 companies. Prior to co-founding GoGoGuest, Chris founded Taptera, an enterprise app developer, which successfully exited in 2016. He also spent over 5 years at Genentech, Inc. a publicly traded biotech company, leading global teams on multi-million dollar IT manufacturing projects.

Chris says that his most interesting learning experience from working on GoGoGuest has been: “I’ve had to teach myself a new set of coding tools, APIs and platforms from front end to payments to databases in less than a month. I also had to jump in and learn the code of engineers who worked on our MVP. It’s not easy, but when you see how the puzzle is all coming together it feels incredible.”


Chris graduated with a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When not leading the GoGoGuest product development and engineering teams, coding or working with Jessica to develop strategy, he spends his personal time with his daughter Amelia who is 10 years old, learning new snowboarding tricks, kite surfing and traveling to local and international destinations.
