Standing On Faith For Jerry "Smokin J's" Evans

53752448_1609923366379505_r.jpegOn December 15th, 2020, just before the holidays,  Jerry Evans of Smokin J's Catering and Cuisine LLC  suffered a heart attack.  On his way to the hospital, Jerry stopped breathing.  Upon arrival it was found that he also suffered from pneumonia and was placed on a ventilator.  He was immediately placed in the ICU department & later had tests run to see if he suffered any brain damage due to his lack of oxygen.  After running tests, the doctors concluded that Jerry suffered what is called Anoxic brain damage.  He currently remains in the hospital, but has shown some positive changes.  He is no longer on the ventilator, breathing on his own, and is now showing response to pain.

We are asking for monetary donations to assist with the lack that the Evans family is currently facing, with their small, but productive business on hiatus. (For more info on the business hiatus please view  the Facebook page at : )  The Evans family is a humble family who believe in hard work & dedication, and are by no means looking to get rich or beg for a handout, but are simply trying to get by.  We are asking  for assistance in meeting the need for medical bills,  housing, food & other standard costs of living.  With Jerry not physically able to run his business, it is causing a deficit for the family.  If monetary assistance is not an option for you, but you would like to help, we ask that you join us by standing with us in faith on Gods Word and by agreeing  with us in prayer for a FULL RECOVERY for Jerry "Smokin J's" Evans.  You can also help by sharing this post.

Jerry Evans is the "J" in Smokin J's Catering and Cuisine LLC; the heart & the spirit behind the small business.  Jerry is more than an entrepreneur, he is also a Father of seven; a Grandfather to six girls & two boys who adore him & greatly miss the presence of their Paw-Paw; he's a big brother to a one sister and one brother, an Uncle to nieces & nephews who appreciate & love him dearly (some to whom he relocated to MN to give them new options in life); he's a husband to his wife of 14 years this year, Mrs. Angela Evans  & he remains the patriarch to his family.  Jerry is a member & an ordained Minister at Worldwide Outreach For Christ Ministries, serving under his Pastor, Curtis Farrar, located on 38th & Chicago (the infamous  intersection where Mr. George Floyd was killed). Not only is Jerry all of these precious things, but Jerry is also a loyal friend, to whom many lovingly refer to as "Brother Jerry," but he also has a servants heart and serves in the community.  Many have seen he & his wife inside the church and outside of it, on the intersection of  38th & Chicago Ave. S, serving the community through their churches outreach ministry on the adjacent lot.  

We are asking for prayer & financial assistance immediately.   We know the holiday seasons have just passed & times are hard for everyone, but if you feel a leading in your heart to help, then we are talking to you.

God Bless & Thank you!

From EVERYONE in the Evans family & all of their friends & loved ones:
We appreciate you!!
