Jeff Thungc Named Finalist for BBB Luminare and Torch Award for Ethics


Entrepreneur Jeff Thungc, of JLT Web Solutions in Kent, received the prestigious Luminare Award for Service from the Better Business Bureau Great West + Pacific (BBBBW+P), during a live online ceremony on October 27, 2022 .

The Luminare Award was newly created to honor individuals who prioritize philanthropy and who have made a significant impact through their charitable initiatives. Additionally, JLT Web Solutions was chosen as a finalist for the prestigious BBB Torch Awards for Ethics, competing with other members in an eight-state service area covered by the BBB of Great West and Pacific.

The Torch Awards for Ethics are BBBGW+P’s most prestigious honor given to companies operating in Alaska, Central Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Western Wyoming. Winners are selected based on their organization’s commitment to character, culture, customers and community.

You may recognize Thungc from our previous cover, when he was named 2022 “Alignable” Businessman of the Year for Kent. Through JLT Web Solutions, his digital marketing company supports local small businesses to help them gain a competitive edge in the digital marketplace. Along with a desire to help other businesses, Thungc has a long-standing commitment to building our local community.

In 2017, he launched the Mien International Enrichment Network (MIEN), a non-profit organization that aims to help Iu Mien advance in society by providing access to literacy resources, education and health resources, and preserving history and culture.

“We need to understand that business and community are inseparable. Community businesses are what build the community. The community is what sustains businesses. The two must coexist. As business owners and employees of a business, when we serve the community, we serve ourselves. Therefore, go and serve because you will be served. Thungc said.

Thungc’s desire to create an impact is also evident in his past fourteen years of service with the Kent School District. Although he loved his time there, he always had a desire to start his own business and started pursuing that dream around 2016, later turning the fledgling business into a full-time business in 2020.

Serving clients in Kent, WA and across the US and Canada, JLT Web Solutions offers website design and hosting and a variety of digital marketing services. This includes services such as helping customers understand and use search engine optimization (SEO), Google Ads, Facebook Ads, social media management, online reputation management, business cards digital, online directory listings and website accessibility.

We stay true to our unique value proposition, so we can sleep well every night knowing our customers are getting the value they deserve and the resources they need to stay competitive in the global economy.
