Decrease size of third party JAR file

I have some classes that rely on many third party JAR files. The problem is that upon startup, the loading is quite slow. My initial assessment of the slowness is due to the large third party JAR files (approx 50MB) which need to be read and extracted before running. Is there any utility out there to reduce the size of the third party JAR file to the classes I reference in my program? Thank you.
