A Background in Experience

Heidrea for Heroes was founded by Marine Corps veterans and small business partners, Jesse Brown and Matthew Mastroianni. Both men served in the military and had personal experiences in their transition from military life to civilian life which underscore their passion for providing assistance, motivation, and pathways to success for veterans in various stages of adjustment. With a long legacy of military service in each of their families, they have a deep understanding of the daily challenges veterans and their families face and a strong commitment to provide meaningful change and transformational opportunities to improve lives.

As small business owners, Brown and Mastroianni bring transferable experience and adept skills to the phases of non-profit success, from initial phases of establishment to plans for continued growth. Their combined broad experience in operations, finance, project management, staffing and long-term vision provides a solid foundation for Heidrea for Heroes’ success.
