Giving is a core value of our Owners, our Company, and our Team. As a company, we support various local events and charities as well as national and international humanitarian outreaches.
An area of the world that is very close to our hearts is the country of Haiti. Our CEO, Ken Jacobe, began visiting Haiti in the 1970’s is currently running point on a project to rebuild a multi-purpose facility in the heart of Port-au-Prince that includes a medical clinic, school, community center, and church that was destroyed during the devastating earthquake in January 2010.
An impoverished country, Haiti continues to struggle to rebuild even today because of a lack of infrastructure, industry, and failing economy. JBC is very excited by the fact that many of our sub-contractors and suppliers have joined with us in our efforts to see this project become a reality.
In addition to the philanthropic endeavors we are involved in as a company, many of our Team members participate personally in mission outreaches locally and around the globe. As you get to know us, you’ll soon discover that giving back to our community, our country, and to our world is woven into the fabric of who we are and why we exist.
