Our Community

Investing and leading in our local communities is an opportunity for us to truly make a difference!

Even during challenging economic times, Jersey State Bank continues to honor its responsibility to the communities we serve, like it has for over a century. Whether donating time, money or both, Jersey State Bank and its employees contribute almost daily to the well being of the people in our surrounding counties we serve.
