JetStream Federal Credit Union is a 73-year-old non-profit, cooperative financial institution that has served members in Miami Lakes for more than two decades.
Among its member-owners are those who live, work, worship, attend school, or have a business or other legal entity in Miami-Dade County, according to the credit union’s website.
Membership is also extended to folks in Carolina, Trujillo Alto and San Juan, in Puerto Rico.
The credit union is at 7900 Oak Lane in Miami Lakes and has branches in Royal Oaks Plaza in town and another in Doral.
It provides clients with a full range of financial options, including regular banking services such as checking, savings, personal loans, mortgages and home equity lines of credit, credit cards, and loans for recreational vehicles and cars.
There are also commercial banking services: business checking and business loans.
“We are truly dedicated to our members, it’s our mission,” said Jeanne Kucey, president and chief executive officer of JetStream Financial Credit Union.
She has held that leadership position for more than 12 years.
“We want to provide that peace of mind and help our members be financially stable,” she said.
She says a large percentage of clients have low incomes. The credit union also serves many families. What sets them apart from a regular bank is that the credit union’s profits go straight to its members, not to stockholders, according to Kucey.
For the past 15 years JetStream has advertised in The Miami Laker.
“We are part of the community,” Kucey said. “We feel that The Miami Laker reaches the community that we are very involved with and dedicated to.
“Our members read The Miami Laker,” Kucey said.
