Thank you for helping me start my credit while others wouldn’t. Your friendly ladies in Angleton helped me out then, and are there for me now whenever I need help. I’ve happily referred my friends and family to them as I know they will treat them like they treated me, like a real person, not just a customer. Thanks Star Loans.

I was so happy to find this place! Once the Manager explained the difference between Star Loans and a payday lender, I’ll never go back to a payday loan

Born in Alabama and raised in South Carolina, J.E. Funderburk attended Clemson University from 1966 until 1969.  He then joined the Army Security Agency and served for 3 years, including two tours of duty in Vietnam. Upon completion of his military service, he began working in the consumer finance industry.

In 1996, after 25 years in the industry, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of starting his own company.  Star Loans was founded with one simple mission - to provide the best customer service in the industry while training the best employees in the industry. The belief has always been that you can dream and create, but it requires the right people with unquestionable integrity for a dream to become a reality.  Star Loans continues to operate based on that simple mission today.

Mr. Funderburk continues to serve as President and CEO of Star Loans.
