St Jeans Credit Union

This credit union is customer friendly I would recommend to anyone in their area to join. From the tellers all the way up to the CEO are professional but more importantly like a large family. I had been using another bank and had a problem with them loosing my Xmas club check. I had to repeat the situation to five different people and still no results. At the St Jeans CU if you have any issues it's one phone call.
