Blues Bailout Yet Another Fan
Jeff Autery received four months of mortgage assistance from the Blues on Jan. 31 as part of the Blues Fan Bailout Plan.
Jeff Autery was almost speechless when he found out he won the Fannie & Freddie Mortgage Giveaway at Saturday’s game vs. Philadelphia.

Like most people who have won mortgage assistance from the Blues, the money couldn’t have come at a better time.

Autery had worked as a motorcycle mechanic at St. Louis Honda Dave Mungenast Motor Sports but has been laid off for the last two and a half months. Since, he’s been in search of a job but with the struggling economy, companies are hesitant to create positions and bring on new staff.

That makes paying for the house a little harder these days.

“Four months of relief,” Autery said Monday, still nearly speechless after winning four months of mortgage assistance. “It’s getting kind of tight with the economy the way it is. I’m really excited about this, just really happy.”

Autery has been a Blues fan since he was a young boy growing up 30 miles south of St. Louis in Barnhart. Before Saturday’s game, he was given tickets from a Blues Season Ticket Holder unable to attend the game.

“He’s really happy for me,” Autery said. “He’s very generous, but he was a little jealous when he found out I won. It was one of the few games he couldn’t go to.”

The Blues Fan Bailout Plan also features 500 discounted tickets in both the upper and lower bowls for every remaining Blues home game this season. Tickets in the lower bowl are just $25, while tickets in the upper bowl are just $11.20.

Now that his mortgage is taken care of for the next four months, Autery can breathe a sigh of relief and concentrate more on finding his next gig. He says he has several interviews lined up this week.

“I got pretty lucky," Autery said Monday about the winning the promotion. "Right place, right time I guess.”
