Our ‘Best-in-Class’ Story

JLM Helps To Build, Represent And Improve Our Industry

Over seventy years ago, an unfortunate byproduct of American city infrastructure planning and development was the segregation of poor communities from rich communities, division of races, and the perpetuating of inequity within communities and regions. Regardless of the intention, the result has led to harsh living conditions and political unrest in these areas ever since.

Today, there are billions of dollars worth of active and future infrastructure projects aimed at not only improving and expanding transit and access but offering the potential to correct many of these mistakes made generations ago.

With governments, owners, and clients demanding social responsibility from the companies they work with, today’s infrastructure projects are in the unique position of needing to both do their job well and positively impact the project’s community.

JLM’s role in reshaping the American story of infrastructure planning and development began more than a decade ago when the company was founded by LaShondra and Jayson Mercurius in 2011.

At that time, both had successful careers in the staffing industry and were ready for a major change and dove into entrepreneurship. The Co-Founders recognized not just the significant opportunity that was emerging in construction, infrastructure, and transportation – but the powerful role that a DBE-Certified company could play in reshaping the American story of infrastructure planning and development.

Under their leadership, JLM has been consistently growing year after year and has been a part of several impactful mega-infrastructure projects across the country. The company has expanded nationwide by building successful partnerships with projects in Washington, Arizona, Texas, Illinois, Nevada, New York, Connecticut, and more.

The continuing growth of JLM is made due to the team’s adaptability to change, and their creative and progressive thinking. This approach drives the company to reinvent itself and offer cost-effective and technology-driven solutions while focusing on what it does best – relationship building with industry talent.

JLM is a national leader in providing the experience, insight, and integrity to a variety of organizations that are taking on community infrastructure programs to:

  • Connect people to the resources they need
  • Erase the dividing lines
  • Create a more inclusive, healthy world
  • Improve communities by upskilling the local workforce
  • Invest back into the community

JLM’s role is to connect these projects with the qualified staff they need to make those changes, and to partner with these companies and organizations to drive change.   

Municipalities and organizations come to JLM both to work with a DBE-certified company, and for the exceptional reputation that we have for finding and training world-class, local talent. 

From our upskilling efforts to our advocacy to our unrivaled offering of talent, JLM stands alone as both the best-in-class infrastructure and transportation staffing company in the country, and a major force for change in the world.

This is something we’re proud of today and excited about the legacy we’re helping leave for tomorrow.

Our Vision

JLM is the industry leader in employing people for infrastructure projects that foster hope, dignity, and economic prosperity in communities across the country.

Our Mission

JLM delivers exceptional talent and advocacy to fuel innovation and transform lives in every community we work with.
