May 16, 2011 - Mark Weyna Joins Jersey Jack Pinball, Inc.

The very talented Industry Veteran Mark Weyna is the latest addition to the growing JJP developmet Team. In 1994 Mark joined WMS as a consultant during the design of the Indy500 pinball. He quickly learned how the design-manufacturing-support cycle worked and was hired full time as an apprentice game designer.

After Indy, Dennis, Greg, and Mark teamed up to do Scared Stiff where he was deeply involved with the design and project management of the game from the start to finish.

Next Mark joined John Popadiuk's team to start the Cirqus Voltaire project where he also started developing his own playfield designs and concepts. Soon after he was redirected off Cirqus and given his own small team to design the CashBall pinball/slot machine topper which WMS made for Anchor Games and IGT. On CashBall, Mark was the game designer, project manager and the company representative.

Mark was also involved with the Pinball2000 platform design and development. As the first title was nearing the testing phase, Mark then transferred to Midway Games to run the test program for pin2000. Mark was soon appointed test program manager for all coin op titles and remained there until Midway exited the coin-op business. During his test program days, Mark was still very active in game design and development.

Continuing along these many years as an industry consultant for many manufacturers leading up to 2010 when Mark re-connected Greg and Dennis and collaborated with Whiz Bang Pinball to help develop and build the Whoa Nellie game. Which brings us to today...

Mark can be contacted at Mark@JerseyJackPinball.com
