The FINANCIAL -- New York - The 100,000 Jobs Mission's coalition members hired a total of 117,439 U.S. military veterans by the end of 2013 - surpassing the coalition's original goal seven years early, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.

"Reaching this important milestone is great news for veterans and employers alike," said Maureen Casey, Director of Military and Veterans Affairs at JPMorgan Chase, a founding company in the 100,000 Jobs Mission. "We have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many of our nation's veterans, and those veterans bring tremendous skills and experience to the workplace," Casey added.

Further, the coalition has announced it will double its original hiring goal to a total of 200,000 U.S. military veterans by the year 2020, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.


"I congratulate JPMorgan Chase and the companies that are part of the 100,000 Jobs Mission in reaching their goal of hiring 100,000 U.S. military veterans," said Tim McGraw, country music superstar and friend of the 100,000 Jobs Mission, in a video message. "I salute you for all you're doing to help returning veterans on the home front. Here's to the next 100,000," he added.

In early 2011, 11 companies -- including JPMorgan Chase -- launched the mission to hire at least 100,000 veterans by 2020. Since then, 120 more companies from nearly every sector of the U.S. economy have joined forces. The companies also have pledged to share best practices with other coalition members, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co.
