About TJ21 Media Group
Amber Blake Interviews TJ21 Founder TJ Jorgensen:
Our founder, TJ Jorgensen, began his professional marketing career at the age of 18, as an intern at Burch, Inc. in Benton Harbor, Michigan working with clients like JB Hunt. By the age of 21, he took another jump, learning the sign and graphic industry in St. Joseph, Michigan before starting his own small sign business in Berrien Springs, Michigan. His dedication to clients back then meant staying up all night for a $50 project. He was labeled the guy that would go to any extent to serve his client. Fast forward over 25 years and the passion and drive is even stronger.
Today, he serves only you, the client. TJ21 Media Group is a media marketing firm located in downtown South Bend, Indiana. Our prime area of focus is video production - including live multi-camera broadcasting - web development, social media marketing, graphic design and marketing representation, however with our strong team of passionate staff members we are here to serve all of your marketing needs.

Meet the TJ21 Team!
Founder | CEO
I have been in the business of helping others my entire adult life and my passion is helping other companies reach their goals. Whether that may be through outlets such as video production, web development, branding, social media or just representing your product or company, my passion is my biggest asset. You can reach me at 574-607-8112, extension 101.
Director of Finance
My job is to make sure the numbers add up! A good business is only as strong as the backbone of the company, and my job is to make sure the structure of the company is financially sound. I love what I do, I love our team and I love our clients!
Having been a small business owner, I'm thrilled to be helping businesses get noticed and make the greatest impact. Our team is primed to help people clearly communicate their message and I can't be more excited to help facilitate this. TJ21 Media Group is truly a fantastic TEAM and I'm honored to be part!
As long as I can remember I have been infatuated with sensory experience. Video, photography, and music have been my passion for years and here at TJ21 Media Group I am able to channel my passion into projects that help people and businesses all over the country. This to me is the greatest facet of working in digital media. I love meeting people and bringing their vision to the screen!
Director of Marketing
I am a naturally creative person with an analytical brain. I used to struggle with how I would find a career to best fit these characteristics, but working here with the TJ21 team allows me to exercise both. I am passionate about developing innovative ways for brands to connect with their audience, and I truly believe that creativity can be used to achieve real business goals. I would love to help your business grow!
Social media is my passion! After several years of working 1:1 with various different businesses and creating social media strategies to help them enhance their online presence, I’ve found that there is no greater reward than seeing clients get results. Social media is the present and the future and I’m excited that I get to do this every day at TJ21 Media Group.
Ever since I can remember, I have loved solving problems and helping people. I get to do this everyday at TJ21 Media Group. At the end of the day, there is nothing better than putting a smile on the client's face.
Getting your content noticed by the world is my job. For many years, I have studied, learned and worked to help get clients noticed online, utilizing the latest tools available. This is what we do here, and its what I thrive on. Getting you noticed!
I love storytelling! It's always great seeing an idea to make it from an initial concept to the screen. I'm excited to be here at TJ21 where I have the opportunity to bring people's stories to life through digital media. When I am not working, you can catch me on the theater stage!
Working in IT for over 16 years, and knowing TJ personally for almost 10 years, I was excited to join TJ21 and help grow the company that I watched my friend build. With the strong team that TJ has built, I am confident that we can help grow clients to the next level.
Media of all types has become a true passion for me over the years. Photography, graphic design, and videography are a few of the areas I love learning and creating with the most. Having the opportunity to work at TJ21 has given me the opportunity to work with like minded individuals to help local businesses grow.
Asst Marketing Director
While media itself is my passion, I have always gravitated towards creating imagery and branding. Visual aesthetics has always been something that I have worked on perfecting through many years of schooling and experience, and it is what I continue to do today.
What matters to me the most is leading someone to find where the root of their passion lies. Filmmaking is where mine has lain ever since I was a kid which has only initiated my interest in documentary, fictional, and commercial work. Helping a client tell their story is something I take great pride in, but it is coming together with other colleagues to create any piece of media that fuels my soul to persevere in this craft!
Having been a live theatre professional for the past 7 years, I have found my love and passion for collaboration and creating. TJ21 Media Group gives me the opportunity to create and collaborate on impactful stories that effect others and my community positively in the digital age.
