Recovery Fund for Jim DeSalvo family

41973334_1568427940494553_r.jpegJim DeSalvo is one of the sweetest people anyone could have the pleasure of knowing. A true Jersey gentleman, accomplished musician and recording artist, and a devoted father to James and Rebecca and husband to Cat, he is the kind of person who comes to your aid in a heartbeat, any time of the day or night, no hesitation. Now he needs our help. 

He is in critical condition and fighting for his life after being struck by the wheel of a dump truck while riding his bicycle. 

His wife, Cat, is by his side and will be out of work for an undetermined amount of time to help him fight through this like the stubborn mule he is and that we all know and love.

Cat and Jim are both freelance, which means there’s no paid time off and no paid sick days. This will be a long and precarious process. Cat needs to be able to stay by his side as much as possible and to help him and her family through this without worrying about work.

With her blessing, I ask for your help for the man who’s always so ready to help others.

We will post regular updates as more information about his condition becomes available.
