Next-door neighbors Jackie Symons and Marcie Price founded J&M Business Solutions in the fall of 1993 as a home-based business that allowed them to stay at home with their young children. J&M was then incorporated in 1994 and moved into traditional office space in 2001. That first office just happened to be next door to the local high school and junior high allowing their children to come by and work after school. As their children grew more independent, Jackie and Marcie were able to travel throughout the U.S. for their clients’ board meetings and events, which became their favorite part of the business (and still is).
Marcie semi-retired in 2014 to care for her aging parents and critically ill brother. Since then she maintains a hand in the company, assisting with projects and events when the need arises. Jackie became semi-retired in 2018 but continues to be active in event planning for J&M clients and assists in other areas of the business when needed. Jackie’s daughter, Sheri Maskow, took over as CEO of J&M upon Jackie’s retirement.
