A Farewell Message from Ben Jackson, Founding Principal Partner

We founded JDS in August 2009 and little did I know that the JDS model would become the success that it has. There aren’t words to express how proud I am of all the work that has been accomplished through the years by all of the associates and friends that have come to work for us. Over the past 10 years we have hired over 44 associates who have worked on various contracts and awards. Our model of hiring former OIG and CMS retirees proved to be a very valuable solution to helping our contractors to identify fraud, waste and abuse in our Federal health care programs and I am so proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time. I have no doubt that our success will continue under Tony Wilkinson’s leadership and the support of the partners and associates of JDS. Lastly, I want to thank my two best friends and senior partners, Gerry Dunham and Gordon Sato for working so hard to make JDS what it became and will continue to be. You guys were the best!
