Lee Jeter grew up economically disadvantaged in Bossier City, Louisiana, but he was fortunate to grow up in a home that was rich with love — thanks to his single mother who worked two jobs while raising seven children and two nieces.
She instilled in son Lee the values of hard work, faith and determination — values that served him well during 20 years in the United States Marine Corps. Today, he puts those values to work as executive director of The Fuller Center for Housing of Northwest Louisiana in Shreveport and Bossier City — one of the international nonprofit’s most productive covenant partners. And he has led several projects to build homes for veterans in the area.
KTBS-TV featured Lee’s story in a series called “Hometown Patriot,” which you can view below:
