Past, Present and Future
JSI was established in 1977 by our founder, Jesse Stutts who started the business from a spare bedroom in his home. After having worked for other electrical firms, he longed to be his own boss and serve customers his way – with integrity, diligence and good service. He established a reputation as a reliable and knowledgeable electrical contractor primarily working in the Huntsville area but did travel throughout the country with a few select customers. In 1983, his son Jay joined him in the business working in field and office positions, learning the business literally “from the ground up”. The company continued to grow and hire many talented people including Jimmy Wall, a highly experienced manager who at one time worked in his father’s electrical business as well.
In 2006 an ownership transfer took place, where upon Jimmy became President and Jay as Vice President. As the new owners, they established ongoing initiatives that would grow the company and promote opportunities to improve the way business was done. Jimmy and Jay take the approach to hire the best, provide all the resources needed to do their job, train them well, encourage and mentor them and reward a job well done. They know that a successful company is not built by one but by many.
Under their leadership:
JSI’s past and our future in the industry is grounded in the key philosophy of our founder, “To do the right thing every day and do it well”.
