On Wednesday we told you about financial troubles at the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center in East St. Louis. The board chairman told me the center was on the brink of foreclosure, but also said the bank was willing to be patient. Rev. Earl Nance Jr. did not offer many details, but says he has a plan to keep the center open. A source close to the situation tells me the JJK has two weeks to come up with the money, but that source doesn't know how much money is needed to keep the doors open. Our source also told us there's a strong possibility that someone close to the center might contribute a large sum of money to hold off a bank foreclosure. Stay with News 4 as we track the latest developments surrounding the Jackie Joyner Kersee Center in East St. Louis.
