“We are proud to partner with JetBlue and offer their highly-talented crewmembers the opportunity to further their career,” said Joe DePaulo, Co-Founder and CEO of College Ave Student Loans. “The unique private student loan was created to remove the stress of financing and help launch as many exceptional crewmembers into the Pilot Gateway programs as possible.
