I want to thank you and Jesse Rodriguez for assisting me in obtaining my 8a certification.  This was a brutal process, and you guys were very focused and diligent in helping me stay on course to submit all the required documentation.  I appreciate you and Jesse for reviewing the documentation before submission and providing the proper input to alleviate any returns from SBA.  I am truly appreciative to you, Jesse and staff members who made the process almost seamless, although there were times I was ready to give it up!  You guys were instrumental in making this a reality to me sooner than later.
