After being a long-time employee in his father’s furniture business, Jonathan Rosson
decided to branch out on his own and start a construction company in 1998. T & J Construction
of Western Arkansas, LLC was formed in Mena and is a commercial and residential construction
Following an electrocution accident in 2013, Rosson began exploring the world of government
contracting. That is when he discovered the services offered by Arkansas PTAC, got
connected with his PTAC counselor Debra Garcia, and became a client in 2019.
Since becoming a PTAC client, T & J Construction has received over a dozen government
contracts with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Although T & J Construction provides
a vast array of services including dirt work, new construction, roofing, and repairs,
most of their contracts are roofing contracts.
Government business has proven to be lucrative enough for the company that Rosson
plans to primarily focus on doing business with the federal government while finishing

“Oh, my goodness. I could go on for hours describing the ways my PTAC Counselor Debra
Garcia has assisted me. When I got started, I knew zero about government contracting.
Debra has taken great care of me in so many ways including getting me set up to be
a government vendor, helped re-set my password numerous times, and decipher change
orders,” said Jonathan Rosson.
We congratulate T & J Construction on the numerous government contracts and for being
able to make government contracting their primary source of business and income.
