My friend Dan Jansen was attacked by 8 skateboarders on November 25, 2018. Dan was doing his job as a security supervisor in moving metal barricades in place to prevent skateboarders from vandalizing the property he was providing security for. One skateboarder was seen pushing my friend Dan while the others joined in throwing punches and kicks. One skateboarder used his skateboard to hit Dan across the head, knocking him unconscious. All 8 skateboarders fled immediately.
Dan was taken to SF General Hospital where he underwent emergency brain surgery to relieve the pressure on his brain. The doctors had to remove a large portion (almost half) of his skull to relieve the pressure. The doctors also had to remove a portion of his brain because it was so badly damaged. Doctors have said that if Dan makes any type of recovery, he will have to learn to walk and talk again. Dan’s road to recovery is going to be a long and hard road.
Dan has stabilized enough to be moved to a long-term rehabilitation center here in San Francisco but as you can imagine, the costs are mounting.
The funds raised will go 100% to Dan’s care and assisting him in getting well. Dan is a fighter and all of his friends are praying for a recovery. Please help us help Dan to get the care he deserves and needs. He is truly a good man and a decent man who deserves the very best.
