In 1991, Lynn’s husband Jack left a national trucking firm with a dream of building a transportation services company that could have the strength and professionalism of the large hauling firms but also be flexible, quick to respond and deliver anywhere in the continental U.S. within days, not weeks.
With Lynn’s background in customer service, strategic planning, logistics and operations management, together Lynn and Jack launched JL Shandy and have grown the company into a leading transportation services provider in the Midwest.
Lynn is very involved in the community of St. John, Indiana, where JL Shandy is headquartered. She serves on the Board of Directors for the St. John Chamber of Commerce and is intricately involved in the business community. Lynn is also a crusader for a number of local charities focusing on disaster and humanitarian relief, children and animal welfare and environmental concerns.
