      PRESIDENT & CEO OF JEMNI, INC., MARK ELLSON, OF WOODBURY, MN

                                 ______
                                 

                         HON. MICHELE BACHMANN

                              of minnesota

                    in the house of representatives

                       Thursday, October 13, 2011

  Mrs. BACHMANN. Mr. Speaker, this month, veteran business owners from 
across the nation are receiving special training through the National 
Center for the Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP). Upon completion 
of this training, these veteran employers are equipped with the 
knowledge and skills to compete in the federal government contract 
process. Today it's my honor to recognize one of those veterans, 
President and CEO of JEMNI Inc., Mark Ellson, of Woodbury, Minnesota 
upon his graduation from VIP.
  As a small-business owner, Mark brings more than 20 years of 
experience to providing services and products for his customers. Mark 
was a perfect candidate for the VIP certification because of his 
distinction as an Army combat and service disabled veteran and his 
dedication to hiring other disabled veterans. VIP invests in veteran-
owned businesses because they know owners, like Mark, will strongly 
consider hiring and mentoring a veteran for future business growth. 
This VIP certification strengthens Mark's ability to secure federal 
government contracts that will grow his business, and in turn, increase 
job opportunities for veterans.
  Mr. Speaker, Mark's dedication to veterans is admirable in every way 
and it is my sincere wish that the VIP certification will continue to 
create jobs for these heroes in Minnesota's Sixth Congressional 
District and beyond. Please join me in congratulating Mark Ellson of 
JEMNI, Inc. on his graduation from the National Center for the Veteran 
Institute for Procurement.
