Help Jeremy Joe recover from truck accident

Hello, my name is Carrie Cunningham. I am a long time friend of Jeremy Joe Larsen. I started out as being one of his mentors in songwriting and along the way he became part of my family.

On July 28th, just outside of Pendleton, Oregon, Jeremy was driving on his way to pick up my Dad in Nebraska,
then to Nashville to work on my house and other music business he may have shared with some of you. When I
spoke with him he said he heard a pop and clink, then the truck started pulling to the right. When he pressed the
breaks, his truck jerked him hard to the right.  When he tried to correct, his wheel buckled and his truck rolled.
As you can see from the photos, it is a true miracle he is still with us. He endured a broken wrist, minor cuts and
emotional turmoil! His airbags didn't even deploy! To be honest, I am happy to be writing this with him still alive vs the other.

Jeremy Joe has been in the rodeo business for most of his life as a bull rider, judge, and a  volunteer for numerous  Rodeo associations.  Jeremy Joe is especially known for being a designated driver to cowboys after rodeo event
parties.  Everyone in the industry can't say enough about his heart, his integrity and his true code of the west mentality which he lives by everyday. 

As you know, with that lifestyle, a cowboy lives a good amount of time in his truck. Not only has he been in the
rodeo industry, but he is also the Ambassador for the Reel Cowboys Organization for the Western film industry.
Their purpose is to "keep alive the wholesome good values and morals most often portrayed in the American Western drama."

Making matters worse is that is that he just spent over $4000 replacing the entire cooling system and had a brand new custom front bumper installed.

 Finally, to answer the one one question I asked Jeremy about regarding insurance.  He informed me that he only
has liability insurance at this time because his insurance company canceled his full coverage policy and put him on a one year probation period after paying for damages caused by wild fires last year.  He intentionally drove around fire barriers in efforts to save horses and livestock from various farms and ranches.

I would love to have us raise enough money for a new truck and also help out with the medical expenses he is enduring. He is completely devastated and at a complete loss for words. So any amount of help you can do is greatly
appreciated!

 

 

 

He has made an impact on so many lives! Jeremy Joe sees the beauty in the world through his windshield and and
gives with his whole heart, no matter what.

As JJ says, "Thank you kindly for your time, and bye for now"
