JEA employees are proud to work and live in the communities we serve. We’re committed to what we do because many of us are JEA customers too. This is just one of the reasons our employees raise funds for United Way and Community Health Charities and volunteer their time to an array of community organizations. At JEA we’re building community because its our community.
