Retired veteran surprised with mortgage-free home

Local News

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – It was the surprise of a lifetime for a veteran and his family.

Jason Roberts retired after serving nearly 11 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, where he lost half of this leg.

He and his wife were surprised Wednesday with a brand-new mortgage-free home thanks to the Pulte Group and Military Warriors Support Foundation.

So far, 60 mortgage-free homes have been awarded to veterans across the country through the partnership – the latest going to Roberts and his family.

He and his wife say they are excited to put down roots in their brand-new home.

“Financial is amazing, you know what I mean – in the aspect that you don’t have the mortgage expenses,” he said. “But also, doing the three-year process of doing the financials with them, and budgeting and learning all that king of stuff is going to be valuable. It’s going to carry on for the rest of our lives.”

The home that was donated to the family is in the Nexton Community near Summerville.
