JETT membership has steadily increased from 29 members in 2013 to over 279 in 2022. “All of these charitable gifts would not be possible without the matching partnership of JASPER® and our generous membership,” added JETT founder Mark Balsmeyer. “We are blessed with the ability to support our community’s non-profit organizations through membership contributions and member-driven fundraising events throughout the year.”


JETT is a giving circle for Associate-Owners of Jasper Holdings, Inc. and their families that focuses on pooling resources, which creates a more significant combined impact on our communities. Their goal is to learn more about philanthropic opportunities and support those organizations that promote thoughtful giving.
