JDSI History




Judy Day, founder and CEO of JDSI, graduated with a BSEE in 1963 from Ohio Northern University, Ada, Ohio. Prior to starting JDSI, Judy was employed by the US Air Force where she was a project manager involved with missile guidance systems. Judy then went to work for Cooper Energy Services where she was a project manager involved with the controls side for natural gas and transmission.




The original office was located on 18 acres near Mt. Vernon, Ohio. This photo circa 1979. JDSI is now located in Dublin, Ohio, convenient to all of Columbus and Central Ohio.





Before there was Computer Aided Drafting, there was just "Board Drafting."  Here's what it looked like in 1978, as JDSI produced top quality plans for architectural, civil, electrical and mechanical needs of that day.





Throughout the 1980s, many drawings were done by hand.  The contraption on the table  is a "drafting machine."




 Mark Day, senior project manager graduated in 1999 with a BA from The Ohio State University  and  graduated with a two year ABET electronics degree.  When Mark  joined the company in 1999,  computers were beginning  to revolutionize the drafting business.  JDSI was on the forefront  adapting  Autocad and other CAD drafting software. Mark has been with JDSI over 17 years now and  brings years of experience to present day CAD requirements.




Today JDSI remains on the forefront of CAD modeling and drafting, serving the needs of modern construction and engineering clients nationwide, and also providing Technical Staffing for firms with temporary and permanent employment needs.
