“The decision to expand into Defense and Intelligence services was a logical next step in our business growth strategy,” said JSL CEO Kristen Larson. “Our successes supporting myriad Federal/Civilian agencies and commercial clients led us to establish and support focused opportunities in this critical space.”

“Hampton Roads has one of the largest concentrations of military bases and facilities representing all five branches of service, and more than a fourth of the nation’s active-duty personnel,” Wedertz said. “JSL wants to provide the highest level of support and attention to our clients here. Because we are intently focused on providing customer-centric solutions, it makes sense to locate our offices near our clients and many of our strategic partners.”
