Thirty years ago, in 1987, the leadership in Jefferson Parish had the foresight to create a separate economic driver to survive changes in administrations and lead business activity and growth throughout the parish.
During this time frame, with JEDCO’s leadership, Jefferson Parish has had a very impressive and consistent source of business prosperity and retention.
This month, the Jefferson Parish Economic Development Commission (JEDCO) celebrates its 30th anniversary. Jerry Bologna (JEDCO’s president and CEO) and his award-winning staff continue to move Jefferson forward. The strategic plan of the Jefferson EDGE is powerful, and JEDCO remains relevant in this changing business climate with its strategic workforce solutions, mission to help businesses on tax incentive programs and so much more.
