On Friday April 16 2021, Jayson Coon along with his bestfriend and coworker were both rushed to the emergency after a tragic accident occurred on the jobsite. The boys both fell 11 stories down the elevator shaft when the suspended work platform they were on collapsed beneath them.
In the moments waiting for paramedics to arrive, Jay showed true determination, strength and love for his bestfriend in spite of him suffering two broken arms during the fall.
After emergency surgery, Jayson was discharged from the hospital on Monday afternoon back to his home and family where he will be recovering under the care of his Wife Kathryn Coon.
Jayson and Kathryn have 2 little boys at home, Owen(3) Isaac (1) and are expecting their 3rd child on the way shortly. Kathryn has shown true strength through this entire process as she continues to help Jay through his road to recovery.
In effort to lighten some of the stress that Jay and Kat are facing we are raising funds to support them in anyway we can so that they can heal safely and without worry. All donations are greatly appreciated and will allow the Coon family to focus on a healthy recovery and the arrival of their newest addition.
