Our History and Values


How We Got Started

JLM Strategic Talent Partners was founded by LaShondra and Jayson Mercurius in 2011. At that time, both have had successful careers in the staffing industry and were ready for a major change and dive into entrepreneurship. JLM Strategic Talent Partners entered the space of construction, infrastructure, and transportation right away as LaShondra and Jayson understood the business potential of this industry. Under their leadership, JLM has been consistently growing year after year, and has been a part of impactful mega-infrastructure projects in Southern California first. 

JLM has also been expanding nationwide, and building partnerships with projects in Washington, Arizona, Texas, Illinois, Nevada, New York, Connecticut and more.  The dynamic growth of JLM has been possible due to the team’s adaptability to change, and creative and progressive thinking. This approach drives the company to reinvent itself and offer new cost effective and technology driven solutions while focusing on what it does best – relationship building with industry talent.
