About j2 Global
In 1994, Jaye Muller, a successful German rock musician, struggled to receive his faxed contracts while on the road with his band. Frustrated by this inconvenience, Jaye, along with his business partner Jack Rieley, came up with a simple idea: deliver faxes and voicemails via the internet.
The result was jFax, an online faxing service that fulfilled a need for every business trying to be more mobile and efficient. jFax went public in 1999. The name was later changed to j2 Global, to better reflect our continuing global expansion into a wide array of services beyond Internet fax, including innovative voice, online backup, email marketing and email security and hosting services.
