On September 13th 2019 Jesse Brown, a 12-year-old student of Peterson Road Elementary, was walking home from school when he was struck by an alleged impaired driver. Jesse sustained life altering injuries that have resulted in the loss of three of his front teeth, vision in one eye and feeling and movement in both legs. Therefore, Jesse is currently confined to a wheelchair for the unforeseeable future.
Since the incident, Jesse’s mother has been by his side 24/7 to support his recovery and therefore has not been able to work. Jesse is working hard every day to be able to return home in between his various types of therapy and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, the costs of retrofitting the family home for Jesse’s return are expensive, especially without his mother’s income.
Jesse is a kind young man with a fantastic sense of humour. He is well liked by his peers and missed dearly by his classmates at Peterson Road Elementary school. Jesse is looking forward to being back home with friends and family. While Jesse concentrates on his rehabilitation, we would like to start preparing his home for when he returns from the rehabilitation centre.
We are hoping to raise $100,000 to assist the Brown family during Jesse’s long road to recovery. Your donation will help to ease the financial burdens associated with this unimaginable tragedy while allowing the Brown family to focus their efforts on Jesse’s rehabilitation and recovery.
Langley RCMP are asking for anyone with information or dash cam footage pertaining to Jesse’s accident from September 13th 2019 at around 3:30 pm driving along 232nd street to please contact them at 604-532-3200.
We thank you in advance for your generous donation.
