East Jefferson Development Corporation (EJDevCo)

EJDevCo serves as the for-proft real estate development and investment entity charged with implementing JEI’s complex real estate projects. All revenues from EJDevCo are donated back to JEI to support its ongoing neighborhood revitalization work.

When JEI was founded, its goal was to get buildings up and down Jefferson renovated and filled with tenants that would make our neighborhood strong.
— Paulette Foster, founder of JEI and 31-year resident in Jefferson-Chalmers.
