Support The Jesso's

On Saturday January 13, 2018 in the small community of Benoit's Cove Newfoundland, my Grandparents Wally and Yvonne Jesso were rescued but lost everything to a devastating flood. A nearby brook combined with heavy rains took away everything they've worked for their entire life in the matter of minutes. 

The home that tells the story of raising their three children, grandchildrens first steps, yummy Jiggs dinners,  and friends gathering around for a good time was washed away due to this heartbreaking incident. 

In the aftermath of this event, their home was submerged in 8 feet of water that destroyed the house and two vehicles. Insurance is not an option due to the nature of the incident.

They have lost everything! Along with losing most of their personal mementos, they have been left without a home, transportation, food and clothing. 

Wally and Yvonne are overwhelmed by the love and support from friends, family, and even strangers so any donation, big or small, would be incredibly appreciated as they try to cope with this unfortunate situation and try to rebuild their life.

Thank you so much!
