Tom Wilson of JRS Coding School Co-Honored as Entrepreneur of the Year by the Harbor Entrepreneur Center

Charleston, SC and Moorestown, NJ (May 25, 2017) – Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc.’s (TRHC) Chief Technology Innovation Officer Tom Wilson was named “Entrepreneur of the Year” by the Harbor Entrepreneur Center at its Founder’s Ball on Saturday, May 13, in Charleston. He shared the honor with Steve Parker, Jr., CEO of Levelwing, a leading digital marketing analytics agency Parker co-founded in 2002. The annual event celebrates business achievement and attracts a who’s who of entrepreneurs in the Charleston region. Wilson is the founder of Jack Russell Software and the JRS Coding School in Mt. Pleasant, SC.

The Harbor Entrepreneur Center’s core belief is that entrepreneurship is the number one way to grow Charleston’s economy.  Its goal is to “create collision throughout the entrepreneur community,” bringing mentors – entrepreneurs who have founded at least one million-dollar enterprise - together with aspiring entrepreneurs.

"The Harbor's Entrepreneur Award is a special recognition by peer entrepreneurs,” explains John Osborne, Co-Founder and Director of the Harbor Entrepreneur Center. “Only individuals who have built a business from scratch to over $1 million in revenue vote on which of their peers had the most outstanding year. Tom is most deserving of this recognition not only for the banner year in business with the (TRHC) IPO, but his consistent contributions to growing the innovation economy in the Charleston region."

Wilson started Jack Russell Software (JRS) in 2007 and worked with TRHC to develop some of the healthcare technology company’s proprietary software. TRHC purchased the software company three years later. Knowing firsthand the difficulty technology companies have filling software developer positions, Wilson and TRHC in 2016 launched the JRS Coding School to help bridge the gap between the skills needed in the marketplace and the talent available. The school is a 12-week, full-time immersive program focusing on JavaScript. Successful graduates are proficient at the junior professional level, able to build full-stack web applications.

Wilson is active within the Charleston software development community, is a member of the Charleston Digital Corridor, and heads the Charleston CoderDojo, which teaches coding skills to children. He also chairs the Charleston JS Meetup Group and is an instructor and lead advisor at the Digital Corridor’s Code Camp.
