The thing I most appreciate of JR is his responsiveness. Give him a voicemail, text or e-mail, and you get a prompt response, usually with a request for more information. His answer, conclusion or advice comes quickly thereafter. JR is more than a Quarterdeck asset. I consider him a Quarterdeck partner, as valuable to Quarterdeck as my equity partners.
