Jesse, an Inspirational Single Father of Three, Was Robbed of His Entire Life Savings. Please Help! (As seen on Fox News, Telemundo and CBS News)
Jesse is a saint and needs our help from a horrific home invasion and robbery. My wife and I have never met such a kind, gentle, ethical and hard-working man as Jesse (last name not disclosed for his family’s security). At age 12, Jesse escaped his horrifically abusive father and came to the US from Mexico looking for a better life here in America. After years of back-breaking migrant work in the fields, Jesse learned he could build or repair ANYTHING!
He started working multiple jobs to help create some financial security for he and his young family. Jesse is the single father to three amazing boys – saddled by a drug-addicted ex-wife and mother to his children, the courts agreed that Jesse should have full custody of these boys. And he has done an amazing job. When they are not in school, they are at their church doing volunteer work, learning how to sing in the choir, and helping Jesse at work as much as possible to learn the trade of construction.
Jesse and his family can only afford to live in Compton, one of the worst neighborhoods in America. Sadly, when he was out to work and the boys at school, people broke into his home and stole a metal toolbox that Jesse was using to store his life’s savings - $160,000. Earned through hard physical labor and 18-hour work days since he got to America, this was all he had and he was planning to use it for his boys to give them a better life.
As his son told me, ‘This was the only time I have ever seen my Dad cry.”
The Compton Police are investigating, and we have helped to get the LAPD detectives involved as well through some of our personal connections, but there is likely nothing that can be done to get his money back. He has been working with immigration to get his Social Security Number, which is a necessity to have to open a bank account. This is why the money was at his home – a home he felt was safe with two dogs, three boys and an unending trust for fellow man.
Your Help is Needed
He is now heartbroken and we are asking for your help and a miracle for his family.
Jesse constantly tells us that he is a truly happy and blessed man because of his relationship with God. Religion is the center of his life.
Jesse has been a God-send to our family as well as our neighbors, who started working with him as well given his honesty and competency – a rare combination today.
Please make a donation today here to help Jesse and his family. We’ve never felt compelled to help anyone like we want to help Jesse – he is a great Dad who has defied all odds to make it here in America, only to have his future security dashed by greedy criminals.
Let’s make this right for Jesse – we will set up a checking account for Jesse to make sure the donations are totally safe and carefully managed so they last to help his boys get through school – not to mention helping them move to a much safer neighborhood.
Thanks for your help and attention!
