JA JA Home is a Partnership between Friends
& their families
Jen has been a business consultant for over 2 decades and met Mariano, of Ja Ja Woods, through a mutual friend. These two families became fast friends and developed a collaborative relationship that proved to be mutually supportive, beneficial, and fun.
The Covid-19 pandemic erupted just as Jen was wrapping up a 4 month consulting project with Ja Ja Woods. Closing shop and laying off employees as the nation went into quarantine felt devastating and disorienting for these two friends who had worked so hard to grow and improve their respective companies.
They put their heads together to figure out a way to scale back, thrive, and survive! As they focused on each sector of the JaJa Woods fabrication shop in Vegas, it became clear that the artisanal wooden boards were a great way to support a nation that was falling in love with home cooking while activating on Jen’s mission to use small business as a force for good. The values of Jen and Ja Ja Woods, and their respective families are united as they continue to inspire and support each other.
JA JA Home is proud to offer sustainable, made in the USA, grazing and cutting boards. We hope you are inspired to continue to or rediscover the joy of HOME.
