WWII veteran Jonas Bender, one of first black US Marines, dies at 94 A visitation will be held today for World War II veteran Jonas Bender who was one of the first African Americans to join the U.S. Marines. "At the time of his draft, the Marine Corps was an unequal and segregated institution," according to his obituary. "He trained at the segregated Montford Point in North Carolina and went on to serve in the Pacific as a radar operator during the war." Bender, 94, of Yellow Springs, passed away on May 30. He was drafted at age 18 and served as a Montford Point Marine from 1943 to 1946. Jonas was among 200 surviving Montford Point Marines to be honored for their service in 2012 when they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal. "The central thing about all this is that the Marine Corps didn't really want us, didn't believe we could do the job and grudgingly moved every step of the way," Bender said when he was profiled in a column by News-Sun columnist Tom Stafford a couple months before the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony.

Kelly D. Price  was born July 19, 1970 in St. Louis and raised by his great grandparents Kelly and Rosa Anna May. At the age of 17 Kelly passed up multiple athletic scholarships from universities such as Arizona State, Iowa and Iowa State to join the United States Army.

Kelly served for 21 years retiring in 2009 as First Sergeant. He is a highly decorated war veteran with a Meritorious Service Medal with 3 Bronze Stars, 6 Army Commendation Medals, 5 Army Achievement Medals, Air assault badge, Basic Parachutist Wings, The Glen E. Morrell Award, Recruiter Ring, and Gold Recruiter Badge with 3 Sapphires.

Following Kelly’s retirement from active service he became a small business entrepreneur. Some of his ventures include the following:
With a friend he co-founded Networking International, a company providing a link between local businesses and other firms from around the globe.
Kelly is a partner in Firewolf Marketing.

March of 2012 Kelly joined JustMyMemphis.com, a company that develops digital profiles for individual professionals and companies to help make Memphis the city of choice.

May of 2013 Mr. Price established the Memphis Entrepreneur Academy (MEA) where he serves as the CEO. The organization holds classes during the summer designed to inspire children to set and achieve goals, promote outstanding citizenship and counseling on ethics. The ultimate goal is to build for our community’s future business and civic leaders. Due to the success of this program it has been expanded to Saturdays throughout the year.

Advanced MEA teens learn how to choose a business, write a business plan, and conduct marketing research and obtaining financing. After completion the students pitch their plans to business owners. In several cases students ended up launching their business! Again the goal of MEA is to teach our youth how to take charge of their future in a profound way. Kelly has also Co-Founded STEM Memphis, that strives to improve the academic success rate of local youth by providing opportunities for STEM-focused summer camps, tutoring and after school activities throughout the school year. Kelly wants to replenishing the future workforce by inspiring the next generation through education and public outreach, mentoring and community service.

Kelly’s companies have been recognized as great assets that are helping shape the future of Memphis and Shelby County economic growth. His skills and dedication has garnered accolades and official commendations from across political party lines and include Memphis Mayor A.C. Wharton, Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell Jr. and Congressman Steve Cohen. In 2011 Price was recognized by the state of Tennessee for his Tri-State Defender ‘Man of Excellence’ award. In 2014 Bartlett Mayor Keith McDonald appointed Kelly to the Bartlett Industrial Board.

Kelly Price also has a huge heart. Every year he helps direct a drive to provide “Back to School” supplies for area students. He sponsors “A Taste for a Cure” event to help promote awareness and fight for a cure for Breast Cancer. In December Kelly is involved with “Tunes for Toys” and personally purchases thousands of dollars in holiday gifts for kids in need. He has been recognized by Mayor Luttrell for his work with the National Foundation on Addiction and Substance Abuse.

Kelly is a member of several civic groups including the Prince Hall Masons (32 degree Mason), Shriners, Knights of Columbus (4th Degree), NRA (Golden Circle) and the Shelby County Republican Party Club. Kelly is an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.

Kelly Price is married to Starlette L. Price. Mrs. Price is also a highly decorated veteran. They have five children, Kenneth, Lanesha, Chanelle, Jama’l and Tre’von. The Prices have two daughter-in-law, Pam, Amber and a son-in-law Brandon. Kelly and Starlette are proud grandparents to five granddaughters and  two grandson. The family is rounded out by the family two dogs, Apollo and Sheba.
