Jennings, LA – JD Bank is saddened by the deaths of Board Member, Victor “Vic” Stelly and his wife, Terry, on December 26, 2020. A lifelong community servant, Stelly joined the Board of Directors of both JD Bancshares, Inc. and JD Bank in June 1999. During his 21 year board tenure, he actively served on several board committees and was the board liaison to our Advisory Board in Moss Bluff. Prior to being elected to the corporate Boards, Vic served as a member of the Moss Bluff Advisory Board.

“JD Bank has lost a valuable voice and guide on our mission of community banking, but we have lost dear friends in Vic and Terry. Our loss is small compared to that of the Stelly family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them,” said Dan L. Donald, Chairman of the Board, JD Bank and JD Bancshares, Inc.

“Vic Stelly was a visionary and valued leader; not only here at the Bank, but also at the state and community levels,” said Bruce W. Elder, JD Bank President & CEO. “His contributions and insights will leave a lasting impact on JD Bank and we are grateful for his service to our organization.”
