Hello, my name is Jacob W Helgeson. I would like to raise money to not only my old co-worker, but my good friend Jesse Romero. Him, his wife frankie and their two kids Zack and Serena are in need of our help. I found out today 10-31-16 that they found a brain tumor in Jesse.The money will be strictly used to go to his Family for rent, groceries, basic living because he his the sole provider and will not be able to work. He has had surgery now and is starting chemo this month.This man is not only a hard worker, but an even better father. I hope that this will reach out to people. There is nothing that would mean more to me, his brother, and his family to see him live a long and healthy life. Words could not describe how thankful I would be I knew he was going to be ok. Please help and support this father. He needs all the prayers he can get.

Thank you so much I never thought that this many people would come together and donate just today. It means the world to this family. Both of them are in Denver right now with the doctors. Also please pray for his son Zack who has Dmd. This family is going through a rough time and just needs to feel cared for. Again thanks to all for your kindness and generosity. You have showed this family hope.
Both of them at Denver University

We are finally getting some answers the Medicaid should be approved as early as Friday if not sooner & next step is scheduling the brain surgery to get the tumor out for biopsy!! This is not something they can remove via laser.. unfortunately he will have to undergo a frontaltemporal craniotomy this is where they cut a section of the head and remove skull bone to access the brain underneath... at about 7 a.m. this morning he got a loading dose of the anti-seizure medicine and hasn't had a seizure since so keep on praying that the medicine continues to work! It could mess with his brain if we travel back & fourth from here & home so were staying put & hoping the Medicaid kicks in very soon!! this way we can schedule the brain surgery as early as Monday please pray that everything goes right so that we can get him on the road to recovery and find out what is next! God Bless you all!

Last summer an employee of Neste repaired shoddy windshield work done be Safelite. The repair was made free of charge even though I insisted on paying. I think the employee was Mr. Romero, but I'm not sure. Regardless, we are paying forward the generosity of a Neste employee.

Neste Auto Glass is a great local company who helped me out BIG TIME when I had a "situation" and needed to get to DIA for a flight to attend a family funeral. I like NESTE even more now when seeing how they "Take Care of Their Own." Good Job Guys and Get Better Buddy.---Bill Cully
