JetCo Solutions to be Honored at the 19th Annual Michigan Celebrates Award Gala

March 29, 2023 (Grand Rapids, Michigan)— JetCo Solutions, a highly regarded consulting firm for government sales, has been recognized as the 2023 awardee for Veteran Owned Small Business of the Year, presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business. JetCo Solutions will be acknowledged on stage at the in-person awards ceremony during the 19th Annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business Gala on May 2, 2023.

“JetCo Solutions’ story is not about us. It’s about our team and the small businesses that we’ve helped to grow through government sales,” believes Jon Tellier, owner and president of JetCo Solutions.

JetCo Solutions doesn’t measure success by the company’s revenue. Instead, it chooses to measure the value of the contracts won by its clients. Being named the Veteran Owned Small Business of the Year by Michigan Celebrates Small Business is not just a win for JetCo Solutions, but also its clients who have made it all possible.

JetCo Solutions was founded in 2009 by Lieutenant Colonel (retired) Jon Tellier and his spouse Sue Tellier. The pair started the company with a singular goal: to give small companies access to a qualified, capable, complete government sales team. JetCo’s passion for serving the government stems from Jon’s military service. He first served in the United States Army as a paratrooper in Operation Desert Shield and Storm. After 24 years of service, he retired from the Army. He continues to serve with commitments to many committees and boards supporting youth, veterans, and businesses.

Flash forward to today, JetCo Solutions is a financially viable, organically grown service-disabled veteran-owned small business with a team of talented employees, 50+ years of government experience, and passion for its clients. To date, JetCo Solutions has secured over 870 contract wins worth over $3.7 billion for clients.

The past three years have been a challenging landscape for business owners, but small businesses like JetCo Solutions have learned to be nimble and innovative in order to accomplish their goals. The 2023 awards gala puts Michigan’s small businesses in the spotlight and give them a chance to share their success stories with the supporters who helped them get to where they are today.

“MCSB has always prided itself on its spirit of collaboration and celebration,” said Jennifer Deamud, MCSB Board Chair. “We love seeing our awardees celebrating one another's success and sharing in this amazing moment is each awardee’s journey. It’s true— success is best when it is shared.”
