Ms. Jing Wang emigrated from China to the United States in 2007. Before moving to New York, Ms. Wang spent 15 years working for a company in China followed by eight years owning and operating her own garment factory in China.
She established JCW Import and Export Inc, a wholesale business that sells kitchen, bath, and other housewares in 2010. JCW is focused on providing unique, quality products that cannot be found in most discount stores.

Through a $50,000 loan from Renaissance, JCW was able to relocate and is now operating in a larger space in Jamaica Queens.
