JP Is a Proud Member CDFI of Veteran Loan Fund

Justine PETERSEN is proud to be a member CDFI of Veteran Loan Fund, which makes capital accessible for small business entrepreneurship to military veterans and their spouses. The Veteran Loan Fund just received a second round of financing from Bank of America, enabling more funds to be deployed through CDFIs to underserved veteran entrepreneurs. Military veterans and their spouses who are looking to launch a small business, are encouraged to apply to Veteran Loan Fund through their online portal. From there, veteran applicants are connected to mission-focused lenders, like JP, to work directly through the loan process, as well as receive education and resources to grow their business. We’re honored to serve those who have provided great sacrifice and service to this country, and still continue to look for ways to provide for their communities.

JP Veteran Client Spotlight: Jason Brownlee of Regal Wear LLC

After honorably serving his country, Jason Brownlee continues to stay connected to the military community, while also doing more of what he loves. He’s the owner of Regal Wear LLC, a custom apparel provider located at Scott Air Force Base, while also having online operations. Jason worked with JP Asset Building Manager, Tatiana Gillum to obtain the loan, which was used for startup and operating expenses. Regal Wear now is creating customers’ unique designs for everything from family celebrations to team gear for their partners, Global Force Karting. With the holidays coming up, we encourage supporting this Veteran owned business for your personalized needs, or shopping their ready-made inventory. Thank you, Jason, for your service and continuing to fuel your local economy.

JP Salutes Our Veterans

On this Veterans Day, Justine PETERSEN salutes all who have served. We especially honor our colleague, Business Assistance Manager, Marcus Bolden, who proudly served his country in the United States Navy.

Be sure to save your spot by contacting JP Chief Partnerships Officer Shawna Collier to get free one-on-one legal advice from our partners at Copeland and Legal Services of Eastern Missouri.
