The mortgage paid off by surprise for a veteran of the Colorado army

DENVER – An Army veteran and his wife received an unexpected surprise on Veteran’s Day which, in turn, will allow them to help more of their loved ones.

On Thursday, Jacob and Marlisa Cline learned that the 30-year mortgage on their recently purchased home had been paid off by their lender, Veterans United Home Loans.

The couple were flown to Los Angeles last week under false pretenses by the lender group so that they could hear from Jimmy Kimmel during a taping of a show.

“Veterans United have paid off your loan in full,” Kimmel told the couple shortly after inviting them on stage.

For the past three years, the Clines had stayed with relatives while saving for their own home.

“We are currently living with Jacob’s parents and his brother, so there are five adults and our two children here,” said Marlisa Cline.

Jacob Cline was on active duty in the Army for four years and served in the National Guard for two years. He now works as a nurse.

At the end of October, the family closed a house in Aurora without expecting the surprise that would come a few weeks later.

“We can afford to help our family. They have looked after us for so long. It’s amazing that we can just return the favor,” said Marlisa Cline.

Veterans United Home Loans plans to surprise a total of 11 families this year by paying off their mortgages.

“Don’t give up hope,” said Jacob Cline. “Because the world can surprise you.”
