Jeff Jarzynski and Family

On Thursday, August 9th, Jeff was working on a jobsite when 1200lbs of metal plates fell onto him, crushing his right hip. Some good samaritans heard his cries for help and were able to lift the weight enough to get him out.  He was rushed to United hospital and eventually transferred to Regions. He underwent surgery on Friday, the 10th, for a broken hip ball and socket.  He received one metal plate and 4 screws.   He will be no weight bearing for at least 2 months and likely out of work for 4-6 months.  Jeff's injury is devastating to his family.  They closed on a new house in Rush City just days before the accident.  Jeff's wife, Deanna, is expecting their 5th child in November and has recently made a job change to stay at home with their children.  Jeff is the sole wage earner in their family.  He is an incredibly hard-working man, always works any and all over time, doing everything he can to provide for his family.  Beyond financial strain for lost wages, Jeff will also be unable to do anything physical for months and there will be a need to hire out things Jeff would normally and easily handle on his own.  Please join me in helping Jeff and his family stay afloat during this incredibly stressful and financial, physical and emotional crisis.  Let's help Jeff and his family focus on healing and not have to worry about making ends meet.
