Jeff purchased Chase Lithography in 1989. After 12 years working for another printing firm, Jeff felt he had learned the ropes, and the entrepreneurial spirit kicked in. He decided to purchase ChaseVP, and 21 years later, ChaseVP is a thriving Bay Area printing company.

After being in this industry for close to 34 years Jeff still can’t wait to get to work in the morning.

“I love the people I work along side and the customers who I have been helping throughout my career. Seeing a job from concept to the finished piece is very rewarding especially when the customer is happy.”

Professionally, Jeff has always had a reputation for being very customer service oriented and his clients appreciate his ability to problem solve under the most intense situations — and always with a smile.

On a typical day, Jeff can be found working with one of his many non-profit or educational clients. He has assisted them with design, print, and mail — offering multiple solutions to customer needs.

I love pizza. When I was 15 I worked as a cook in a pizza restaurant and made every concoction known to man. To this day my wife looks at me funny when I order a pizza and she normally says…I’m not eating that.

Jeanne joined the ChaseVP team in 2000. She is a “digital investigator” at heart – running our pre-press department and making files run seamlessly from submission into production. With a background in small press operation, she really understands the technical details of files and is great a keeping clients in the loop with the progress of their files.At ChaseVP, Jeanne is really a problem solver … and she enjoys it! A knowledgeable, informed customer is confident and easier to work with. From clients that call screaming “My file won’t upload!” to basic software questions, all she has to do is be on the phone with them, and 99.99% of the time, the problem is solved.

Meet Jenny Huerta, Office Manager at ChaseVP.
Email Jenny

Jenny joined the ChaseVP team prior to current owner, Jeff. She knows the shop better than anyone! Originally, her dream was not to be in the printing industry, but after getting her start in the bindery department, Jenny has worked her way through ChaseVP and couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.As the office manager and customer service interface, Jenny assists with paper orders, customer reprints, billing, and much more! On a typical day, she can be found shipping an order, confirming the delivery schedule, sending reprints to pre-press and keeping up with the needs of the growing print shop.

Jenny gets the most satisfaction working with the ChaseVP clients – like when a client calls to order a job and they need it the next day. Because we have a large volume of paper in house, we can offer next day delivery to our clients when absolutely needed.

“I truly enjoy helping with customer service and assuring my customers they will get their jobs in the best quality possible.”
