Jefferson Parish Pulse: Jennifer Lapeyrouse

We are kicking off Season 4 with an introduction to JEDCO’s loan programs: how they work, who is eligible, all the details to help you understand what we offer and how our loan programs can help your business. On this episode of the Jefferson Parish Pulse, we interview JEDCO Finance Director Jennifer Lapeyrouse.

Jennifer came to JEDCO in 2017 and transformed the Finance Department into the powerhouse that it is today. Under Jennifer’s leadership, loans jumped up 300% from 2018 to 2020. Business has increased so much that we’ve recently added another person to the finance team to keep serving our business community!

On the show, Jennifer talks about our loan programs, what drives the financing program at JEDCO, and what drives her. Jennifer is an amazing advocate for the small business community and her passion comes through in this interview – and in all of the work that she does for JEDCO.
