Jasper Dog in Hanover Park, IL | BJS & Associates, Ltd.

Jasper was our Golden Retriever and official office mascot. He has passed away and given his duty to Jace.


Jace is following in the paw prints of Jasper, and is now the official office mascot.

I have been brought on to the team as a calming influence to these silly boys.
