KJO Media Earns Gold Star Award

May 15, 2020

USTA Missouri Valley is happy to recognize KJO Media as a Gold Star award recipient for the valuable work they do to produce video content every year that truly represents the spirit of the section. 


KJO Media is one of the leading video production and motion graphics companies in Kansas City, specializing in professional video production for every kind of niche. The company was founded in 2003 by T.J. Kilian, President & Executive Producer, as he sought to create a media company that was not just a place of work, but also a comfortable, creative team environment that invests in its community. 


The team at KJO Media works with clear passion, providing innovative solutions to client desires and high-quality work that consistently surpasses expectations.

KJO Media and USTA Missouri Valley have worked together for fifteen years. Their work with USTA Missouri Valley includes year-end highlight videos that date back many years, and most recently our 100th anniversary video. 


“We have worked with USTA Missouri Valley for so long, and there’s been a lot of wonderful connections and relationships that have come out of working together,” said Kilian, President & Executive Producer. “The USTA Missouri Valley has kind of become a part of the KJO family.”


In creating our 100th anniversary video, KJO Media went above and beyond for USTA Missouri Valley, sourcing historical video assets beyond the section’s archives and implementing added unique creative elements. 


“We feel really blessed to be able to do what we do. We’re making videos to help our community, to tell stories, to help businesses do things better and we’re really inspired by that,” Kilian said. “Honestly, it’s not very difficult for us to put in the extra effort because we’re passionate about what we do and we really do feel lucky to get to do this.”


The Gold Star award was received with sincere gratitude from the KJO team and will be proudly displayed in their office. 


“We are incredibly proud to receive this award,” Kilian added. “Every time an organization recognizes us we celebrate it because it says that we’re doing something right and the extra effort we’re putting into it is being recognized. Awards aren’t everything, but they do have a place in solidifying our commitment and work ethic.”
