"JJ Supply Partners, Inc. & JJJ Packaging is a great company to work with inside and out! Because of Jason’s experience in the facilities industry and PPE market over the past 25 years, we have been very fortunate during these very difficult times. Not only have we been selling PPE but we have been able to consult businesses with the best practices to allow them to have a good game plan to safely re-open and protect their customers and employees! Since we are able to grow during these unprecedented times, we have been able to contribute to the job market more than ever and be really efficient in the community to help with employment opportunities! Since the pandemic has begun, we have been able to provide about 15 new employment opportunities within the Chicagoland area and nationwide! 

I’ve never worked with a company that has been so focused on the greater good of the clients and always making sure that the partnership between Jason, myself and the sales reps gets our clients the products they need as fast as possible! I’ve truly enjoyed seeing that while the primary focus is always the clients, we are also involved within the community philanthropically as well! I highly recommend JJ Supply Partners to anyone, whether it’s for the products and services we offer or employment opportunities!" Megan Sharkey, JJ Supply Partners, Inc. & JJJ Packaging
