Jessie's Peg Leg Fund

On Saturday, February 24th, Jessie Sclosser was heading out to meet some co-workers from Kado no Mise for a good-bye party, when he was struck crossing the street, by a vehicle speeding down Lyndale avenue in a blizzard. 

The collision not only shattered the driver's windshield, but also Jessie's left leg. The next day he underwent emergency surgery to save his leg at Hennepin County Medical Center.   

Fortunately, the surgery was successful and Jessie responded better than initially expected.  
Despite the big snow storm, Jessie's parents were able to visit from Ely for the surgery and a few recovery days.  Thankfully his sister Shannon has been able to be by his side.  Though his pain is still severe, Jessie has remained positive and grateful for everyone who has surrounded him with love during this experience. 

The doctors say his road to recovery will be a long and difficult one. After three months of physical therapy, he can begin weight-bearing on his left leg. But it will be as long as six months until he'll be able to work on his feet again.

Jessie will be staying with his boyfriend, Mike, while he is in recovery. 

As we all know life in 2018 is expensive. Besides some sizable medical bills pending, his other financial responsibilities are pressing. We started this campaign to soften the financial blow as much as possible. It is our hope that if Jessie can focus on healing, he can get back to his usual self- who brings so much joy to those around him. Our goal is to raise $8500 or more quickly for his expenses looming over the next six months, until he's back on his feet.  Any amount helps, though we appreciate any support you have to offer. Jessie likes visitors, hugs, and Asian food. 

Thank you for reading, and for your kind hearts. 

All our best, 

Anna Vo. and Peter Polski
