Jackson, MS-“City with Soul”
On July 20th, the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority (JMAA) finalized the legal defeasance of its 2005C Bond Series by setting aside funds in an escrow account with Trustmark National Bank acting as the Escrow Agent. This bond series had an outstanding balance of $2,155,000.00 with a final maturity date of October 1, 2027. Legal defeasance of these bonds released JMAA from this outstanding
debt and all obligations associated with this debt.
