Jimmie W was born and raised in Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Growing up he had experienced a lot of challenges which led him down the path of self-destruction. As a result, in December of 2007, Williams and his wife started “Just Us Lawn Care, Inc” and they have accomplished great things with their business thus far.  Most recently, they were selected to the Accion Chicago Client Advisory Board for the 2016-2018 years and participated in the Mayor’s Round Table at the Small Business Expo 2016.
