NEW YORK -- November 09, 2012

JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM) announced today that it will host a series of
Veterans Day events to honor U.S. military veterans as well as company
employees who have served. The initiatives reflect JPMorgan Chase’s
longstanding commitment to supporting America’s servicemembers and their

“We have the finest military in the world because of the quality of the people
who have served,” said Frank Bisignano, JPMorgan Chase Chief Operating Officer
and Mortgage Banking CEO. “Veterans Day is about honoring their dedication and
service, and while we should take the time to thank and recognize them for
their contributions to our nation, we must also do everything in our power to
support them while they’re serving and to help them transition when they
return to civilian life.”

Veteran’s Day Parades

Chase will again sponsor the New York City Veterans Day Parade on Sunday,
November 11. As a leading sponsor of the parade, the bank will showcase a
100,000 Jobs Mission float, which will be accompanied by employee veterans
from JPMorgan Chase, members of the 100,000 Jobs Mission and their families.
In March 2011, JPMorgan Chase and 10 other companies launched the 100,000 Jobs
Mission, a coalition of companies committed to hiring at least 100,000
veterans by 2020. Since then, the coalition has grown to 83 companies and has
hired more than 28,000 veterans – and counting.

JPMorgan Chase employees with military experience and other supportive
employees will march in 13 Veteran’s Day parades in communities across the
country— Colorado Springs; Columbus; Dallas; Houston; Las Vegas; Media, Pa.;
New York; Orlando; Overland Park, Kan.; San Antonio; San Diego; Springfield,
Mo.; and Tampa. The bank's senior leaders will also celebrate thousands of
employees who have served and who continue to serve in the military at 20
luncheons in 19 cities across the U.S.

Home Awards

In honor of Veterans Day, Chase and its non-profit partners will award nine
mortgage-free homes to military families in Florida, Georgia, Illinois,
Indiana, Tennessee and Texas. In early 2011, Chase announced that it will
award 1,000 mortgage-free homes to deserving veterans and their families by
2016. So far, Chase has provided more than 330 homes to its non-profit
partners – Building Homes for Heroes, Military Warrior Support Foundation and
Operation Homefront – to award to veterans and their families.

Homeownership Assistance

Maureen Casey, Managing Director of JPMorgan Chase Military and Veteran
Affairs, said, “Our servicemen and women often face a unique set of housing
challenges. Frequent moves and deployments place extra demands on military
families. It’s important that we do everything we can to help these families
during what can be a very stressful time in their lives.”

Designed with the needs of military homeowners in mind, Chase has opened nine
Chase Homeownership Centers in cities near large military bases. Each center
is staffed with veterans, family members of those currently serving and
dedicated employees who understand the needs of military personnel and are
specifically trained to provide one-on-one assistance. In addition, military
homeowners can obtain information pertaining to the Servicemembers Civil
Relief Act (SCRA), mortgage modifications, and Chase’s special military
programs. The military Chase Homeownership Centers are located in the
following areas:

In addition, servicemembers who are Chase customers can receive assistance at

District of Columbia or attend a Chase-hosted financial counseling outreach
event. The bank has hosted 20 of these events near military bases across the
