Jonathan (Jon/Jonny) Gillette

Jerimiah 29:11
On Sunday 2/18/18 Jonathan Gillette was in a serious car accident. While attempting to cross the highway the car he was in was hit by an oncoming pickup truck at high speed. The car was crushed and flipped over. Jonathan was helped by a man who stopped at the scene and held him, talking him through until paramedics, state troopers and the Nightingale air ambulance arrived, airlifting him and his girlfriend to the trauma center in Norfolk while his friend was taken by ambulance.  He has suffered significant brain trauma including bleeding on his frontal lobe and his basal ganglia along with intra-cranial swelling. Jon is in a coma in the ICU. His current diagnosis is DAI (Diffuse Axonal Injury) along with a ruptured spleen.  At this time doctors are not able to assess the extent of the brain injury and it impossible to say what the short and long term prognosis will be. Doctors are predicting it will be at least 12 months before we know for sure what the recovery outcome will be. Jonathan is strong and we know that God is the great physician who has great things in store for him. We are confident that God is greater than this situation.  Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future. “


We are heartened by all the support, love and prayers for Jonathan
