Our Mission.

Our team’s mission is to empower communications providers to grow profitably and to deliver world-class services to the communities in which they operate.

Our Vision.

At JSI, we strive not only to be the leading service provider for independent communications providers across the United States, but also to have a profoundly positive impact on the growth of our clients’ businesses and the scope of services that they offer their customers.

Our Values.

At JSI, our core values are quite simple:


  • We place customers’ interests first.

  • Our team maintains exceptionally high ethical standards.

  • We actively support unserved and underserved communities in the United States as part of our ongoing commitment to closing the digital divide in this country.

  • We leverage technology to innovate and to better serve our clients whenever possible.

  • We empower our employees to succeed.

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. He prepared and negotiated the first separations (cost) studies ever conducted by independent telecommunications companies. 

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.
