NEW YORK, June 3 (Reuters) - (This June 3 story corrects to reflect that bank says 17% referred to the month of May, not the year to date)

Spending by customers holding JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) credit cards was up 17% in May over the same period in 2019, bank co-president Gordon Smith said on Thursday.

The uptick in credit card spending should mean that loans begin to grow modestly by the end of the year, Smith said.
