Hello, my name is Sue Simpson, I am the mother of Jessie Simpson. Jessie was brutally attacked on his graduation night of June 19, 2016.

As a result of this attack, Jessie was in a coma for 10 months. He has almost passed away several times. Jessie has a catastrophic brain injury, bedridden in a 24 hr care facility, and is now wheelchair bound. Sadly, Jessie will never be the same.

I am a single mother and have lost my job to stay by his side. Our goals are to get a new wheelchair and wheelchair accessible van. Jessie has outgrown his wheelchair and as a result his back and body are in constant pain.

By having a wheelchair accessible van will improve the quality of life for the both of us. Outings such as going to the park or going for a drive will be much easier, but most importantly to attend his many appointments in comfort.

Having to leave my 21 yr old son to stare at a wall in a 24 hour care facility breaks my heart. Jessie was so vibrant and full of life, he needs to get out and enjoy the young life he has.

I also have a goal to one day bring my son home.

Every mom wants to see there child married, have children and come home for the holidays this will not happen for us. Coming to terms with this is unbearably hard.

With your support our dream of getting Jessie out and bringing him home for visits can happen.

Preparing our house will require ramps, lifts 24 hr care and a vehicle to transport, vehicle insurance and gas.

I greatly appreciate all the continous support, as it made it being by my sons side possible.

A big thank to all who have supported us and who continue to support us through this life long journey.

Hi it has been a while since an update. I am back to work finally. Jessie is continuing to make progress. Such a sweet strong happy soul. He has a lot of good and bad days. Headaches pain he wants come home so bad. We will continue to work toward that goal. It will most likely be for visits as have accepted his 24 hr care at home Is too expensive. We are waiting to hear if he will be accepted for more rehabilitation. Our lives have changed so much. I want my son to be home so bad. I want us to be together again every day and night. He smiles he misses me and ask me everyday if I'm coming to visit Tom. What will we do together mom❤ I want to come home mom. He misses me hugs me shows me no matter what has happened to him. He can still smile. He is my Jessie the strongest person in the world. His birthday is July 26 he will be 22 years old. 3 years have passed since his brutal attack each day is hard for us both. The hardest part for me to understand is why Jessie has to live the rest of his life in a diaper wheelchair bound and bedridden breaks my heart as a mother Thank you everyone for your support and being able to give him some Quality of life. Love Sue and Jessie
