Our History

About | Jackson Security Services

Jackson Electric was founded in 1949 by Tennis and Alma Jackson, and has been a trusted provider of electric and security services in West Alabama for over 65 years. Residential and commercial security services were first introduced as a part of the electric company in 1953.

In 1972, Chuck Turner became a partner of Tennis Jackson Electric Company and added alarm system design and installation. In l978 the firm’s security services were separated from the electric side of the house, and in 1982 became Jackson Security Services. That same year JSS purchased Business Security Services in Tuscaloosa.

In 1988, Chuck Turner purchased both the electric and security services and merged the companies. In 1992 Brad Turner was appointed Vice President of Jackson Security Services, and in 2000 Jim Essary was hired as Vice President and General Manager.

New Security Systems Emerge

In 2014 Jackson Electric Services merged with a similar company in the Tuscaloosa area. Now owned by Gary Phillips, Jackson Security Services continues to serve the residents of West Alabama with local and reliable security services. They office located here in Tuscaloosa is run by Stacy Williams as Connectivity Manager and Michael Lumpkin over Residential and Commercial services. And in January of 2017 the ironworks division was born. You can now get all your security needs including the actually forging of beautiful gates, rails and fences all in one place.
