Spotlight on John Tellier - Jetco Solutions
Jon Tellier founded JetCo Solutions as a government sales and marketing agent for a manufacturing client in 2006. Today, the company has a backdrop of strong talent, comprising a team with unique experience in defense, capture, Business to Government (B2G) marketing, proposal management, technical content development, logistics, engineering, quality assurance and research.

JetCo is now a leading B2G solutions provider for several industries - including welding, healthcare, depot equipment and information technology - lead by Jon and his wife, Sue. Their team has roots in manufacturing, military, sales, public procurement, quality assurance, marketing and packaging. With a specialization in government sales, JetCo assists its clients in selling to all levels of government.

Jon and Sue Tellier
The company works closely with several business accelerators and economic development engines that require resources for targeted second stage companies with the goal of government sales. "We owe credit to Phimation, an organization that recognized the potential for a successful business relationship between our company and LEID Products," Tellier explains. "Our contact at Phimation made the introduction between Sue and Sam Hoff. Once we met and gathered an understanding of LEID's technology, products and direction of the company, we were hooked."

Originally from Lansing, MI, Jon lived in New York, Germany, Italy, Iraq, North Carolina and Mississippi before settling again in Grand Rapids, MI. Jon received his Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the United States Military Academy. During his time at West Point, Jon attended Airborne School at Fort Benning and Jungle School in Panama. After earning his degree, Jon attended Ranger School at Fort Benning. Serving in the Army for 11 years, Jon was stationed in Italy, Germany and he even served in Operation Desert Storm in Iraq. A fun fact about Jon is that he has willingly jumped out of an airplanes 82 times.

Jon has nearly 25 years of experience working in military, manufacturing and business development. As a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, he serves his country as a reservist. He and his wife regularly attend Army vs. Navy football games, always rooting and believing his Alma Mater will rise victorious.

He credits Sue's previous professional career as a large factor in founding JetCo Solutions; however, Jon's entrepreneurial spirit does not fall by the wayside. Sue's experience in business outreach and supplier diversity for the State of Michigan - where she was an expert in training companies to bid on and win state level contracts - is the framework for her expertise in public sector supplier diversity. "We talked at length about the growing prevalence of these programs at the state level, and the existing program at the federal level," Tellier explained. "Since I am a veteran, I knew a great opportunity
Jon, Ethan and Sue
was at hand. I spoke with a manufacturer about becoming their sales and marketing division for government sales and while it was not that particular organization that helped JetCo Solutions hit the ground running, it was a critical part in our idea taking shape. I still cannot believe that was seven years ago. Today, we've helped clients win more than two billion dollars in government contracts, with more than 150 public agencies."

Jon's success professionally comes second to his success as a parent. His son Ethan is 15 years old and known to be a strong defenseman for his hockey team. Ethan's good nature and well-timed sarcastic edge lead his Father Jon to believe he's a budding businessman. Outside of the office, Jon enjoys hunting and fishing with his Father and Son. He occasionally finds time for golf.
