The APEX Team

Jonathan Jernigan

Team Principal
Jonathan Jernigan has lived in Destin his entire life (born and raised!) and started APEX Web Solutions shortly after leaving high school. While in school he built websites for sports teams, family and friends, and local small businesses. After leaving his job at a local I.T. company, he began building websites professionally which grew into what would become APEX Web Solutions.

Jonathan has been building websites professionally since 2014 and has helped numerous organizations of all sizes in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, California, New York and more. He's involved in the local community with the Rotary Club of Destin serving as Webmaster & Social Media Chair on the Board of Directors, and as Secretary Treasurer in the 30a Coastal Connection chapter of BNI.

Outside of work, Jonathan is an avid fan of Formula 1 racing and working on cars. The theme behind the name APEX Web Solutions and our core phrases like “driven” all stem from this love of motor racing.
