U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Ellis “Jerry” Majetich received the keys to his new, mortgage-free home on Veteran’s Day at Del Webb Nocatee in Ponte Vedra, Florida. The home was donated by PulteGroup’s Built to Honor® program, which provides mortgage-free homes to veterans injured during their military service and their families. This is the first Built to Honor home donated in a Del Webb community which is designed for active adults ages 55 and older.

“We launched our Built to Honor program almost a decade ago, as our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our nation’s heroes by doing what we do best: building incredible places where people can live their dreams,” said PulteGroup President and Chief Executive Officer Ryan Marshall. “Our teams continue to enthusiastically embrace this program and remain steadfast in supporting its mission to meet the needs of returning military servicemen and women.”

A procession of First Responders and Nocatee residents joined Staff Sergeant Majetich and his wife Mary Ella as they saw their home for the first time during an unveiling ceremony at Del Webb Nocatee. The single-story home was designed specifically to meet all of Staff Sergeant Majetich’s needs.

“It is an honor for our team, along with the support of Building Homes for Heroes, and our trade partners and suppliers, to build this home for Sergeant Majetich in recognition of his service to our country,” said Tony Nason, president of PulteGroup’s Northeast Florida Division. “We hope this home will be a source of comfort, joy, and a place to create wonderful memories.”

This is the second home dedicated in the greater Jacksonville area through PulteGroup’s Built to Honor program. The home is being awarded in partnership with Building Homes for Heroes®, a national non-profit organization strongly committed to rebuilding lives and supporting the brave men and women who were injured while serving our country’s armed forces.

“We are proud to partner with PulteGroup and their Built to Honor program to provide a home to Sergeant Majetich and his wife, Mary Ella,” said Building Homes for Heroes President and CEO Andy Pujol. “Sergeant Majetich has sacrificed so much to protect our freedom and we couldn’t be happier to support them with a gift that will help them lead a better and brighter future that they never imagined. Together, we are making our communities and country a better place.”
