About JSA Development

Restoring Downtown Waterloo Since 2001

In its glory days, downtown Waterloo was the central hub of the city where people flocked to restaurants, shops and offices of all kinds. Over time, the area lost much of its business, charm and liveliness. 

In 2001, Jim Walsh, an attorney, executive, politician and developer established JSA Development to help bring some life back into downtown Waterloo. Walsh saw the potential of the area and has since worked with local building professionals and contractors to help restore not only the buildings, but also the former glory for years to come. 

Each member of the JSA Development staff provides a different set of skills to work toward the goal of reviving downtown Waterloo. Here you can meet a few of our staff members and learn more about their role in JSA Development’s vision.
