Jumbo, Coconut, and TheLaw, are going to drive down to see the last space shuttle mission... in a space shuttle! We're converting his xTerra into a ridiculous replica of the actual space shuttle in the hopes of raising funds and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
We are an officially sanctioned fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. All of the proceeds will go to support their outstanding work.
To save time, and avoid the 5% service fee GoFundMe charges (a reasonable fee, that we compensate for when we transfer the donation to Wounded Warrior Project) please donate at wwpproudsupporter.kintera.org/SpayzChuttle
We'll be heading out in mid-July (depending on when the launch is scheduled) and working our way down the East Coast to Cape Canaveral. Along the way we hope to encourage people to support the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much in the service of our country.
We need your help to get this mission off the ground!
Jumbo lives in Wilmington, with his wife and grandmom. He is a
nurse, and a Hospital Services Coordinator for Gift of Life Donor
Program, ensuring organs are available for those in need. He also sits
on the board of South Camden Theatre Company, an organization dedicated
to improving the neighborhood of Waterfront South - a heavily
impoverished area. Jumbo has spoken before the International Society of
the 173rd Airborne Brigade, and is fortunate to enjoy a close
relationship with many of the Herd, especially the Bravo Bulls of B-2
503, '65-'66. His next mission, "Dad", is scheduled to launch in
Coconut lives in Swarthmore with his fiancee, TheMayor. He is an entrepreneur, working on a new venture. He's serving as STS417's Twittermaster, Fundraiser-in-Chief, and FSU Wrangler. He's very proud of his cousin, a Blackhawk pilot who served in several theaters, but she won't tell him where. One of two pinko liberals on the crew, he is determined to show that even loony lefties support the troops.
The Law - lives above an Italian bakery in picturesque Roxborough.
After nearly 7 years as a professional actor, he is now a practicing
ligitation attorney, licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and is
looking into the proper licensing to practice Space Law. His first born
child is set for "launch" in early October. He serves as chief science
officer of STS417's Mission. He is the other bleeding-heart liberal on
board, and is eternally grateful to our men and women in uniform, who
gladly volunteer their lives to protect and defend our country. When
those brave men and women come home - after risking life and limb - we
must all volunteer what we can to lift their spirits and mend their
