Do you know the faces at SOS Systems Inc.?

After 20 years of service to our wonderful patrons,
we would like to take time to reacquaint you with our team members.

Jim Young
Owner & Founder

A big hello from me, Jim Young! After a career in computer and technology-related fields beginning in 1972, I founded SOS Systems, Inc. in 1992. My goal is to assist businesses in technology support.
I have always adhered to a hands-on approach and am happy to speak with each and every client who wishes to communicate with me. In fact, our major corporate focus is to remain client-oriented.

Hilda, my wife of 25 years, and I have a daughter, Hanna, who is a third-year student at Auburn University’s School of Veterinary Medicine. Outside of my family and business life, I am actively involved in the church and the community. I have over 25 years of service to Memphis in May
and close to 20 years with the Fed Ex St. Jude Golf Tournament. Thank you for taking time
to get to know our SOS family and we look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
