Our History. 

Sparked by his belief that community based, independent telephone companies and cooperatives deserved the right and opportunity to stand on their own financial feet, John Staurulakis resigned his position as director of settlements for the United States Independent Telephone Association to address what he saw as a basic, fundamental need.

Sixty years later, the company that John Staurulakis founded serves hundreds of companies in more than 40 states with the same degree of commitment as was demonstrated to his first client. JSI maintains its position as an unparalleled provider of financial, engineering, management, regulatory, and strategic services – always prepared to address any emerging issue that might affect the viability and success of independent communications providers in the United States.
