All Donations paid will go directly to Jesus who works at T2 Taco for his heroic actions.

On Wednesday, February 26, 2014, at the corner of Manchester  & Loyola, in front of T2 Tacos, a 33 yr old mand assaulted a nanny and kidnapped a 4 yr old boy in her care. Jesus rescued the boy and with the help of others subdued the kidnapper until police arrived. *

Jesus is a blessing to our community and this is just a small way for our community to say " Thank You" for going above and beyond to rescue this little boy! *Possible changes to detailed info in regards to this crime may occur once police statement is issued. *

When a would-be kidnapper punched a nanny and ran off with 4-year-old boy in her care last month, witness Jesus Delgado leapt into action to stop the man.

On Tuesday, Delgado, left, was honored as a hero for saving Grady O'Brien, right, and subduing the kidnapper until L.A. police could arrive.

Part of the $26,000 raised by the community to thank Delgado will go toward paying medical bills for his own 4-year-old daughter, who has a heart defect.

Jesus, You are a brave man and a true hero. Not many people would have the courage to do what you did. They might feel bad and call 911 but to get out there and chase someone down not knowing what could happen to you, is truely heroic. God bless you and your family. I hope that you have money pouring in for your daughter's health needs and that your family is blessed

I got to this story too late to make any donations,(lack of finances) but I WILL say I'm grateful that this world still has people like Jesus. The fact that he went out of his way and put himself in danger to help a child stay safe, that's the textbook definition of heroism in my book. Jesus, from my wife and myself, THANK YOU for rescuing that child and making the world that much safer. You deserve all the good karma and rewards coming your way. And to all those who choose to come up after me to post negative comments? Shove it.

Jesus is a true Hero! The Moms of Westchester and Playa del Rey set this up because he saved one of our neighborhood children from a kidnapper. Once we found out from his fellow employees/employer (who have nothing to gain from this) about his daughter we jumped in and set this account up. I want to personally thank everyone who has donated to Jesus. He deserves every single penny plus more. This man saved a child's life and kept a family together. There not a dollar amount that would be enough, but we hope this will change his life for the better.

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed when I think about all the evil in the world. But then I remember that for all the evil, there's also a lot of good out there to stand up to it. You exemplify this, Jesus, and for that I am grateful.

Allen, Kevin, and the other nay-sayers. 1st) most people are giving between $5.00 and $20.00, so most people are giving small amounts in thanks for his saving a child. 2nd) Just because you don't believe that he deserves the total, doesn't mean that he does not. No one asked you to make that judgement. The only thing you get to decide is if you want to contribute, the rest is just you spouting without any real knowledge. 3rd) If you have "proof" that he does not have a child with a disability, then show it, otherwise, you are just being a skeptic, and most of us don't care if you do not believe, 4th) I'd rather give money to Jesus than to Zimmerman, he got more than $100000 for killing an unarmed teenager that he stalked. I gave $20.00 several days ago and am not in the least bit unhappy about helping Jesus. It is my money and I don't need you to approve of what I do with it. $20.00 would hardly pay for one meal at a restaurant for one person. I don't need your approbation.

Those of you with your rude comments. .. why even leave one? Sounds like a bit of jealousy to me that know one has paid this much attention to you that you have to put down others? If you do not want to give.. do not give but please keep your comments to yourself.

Sometimes people do great things and others want to show their appreciation for being such an inspiration to others. Some will donate for this cause and those who don't see at least why others do it, search your heart. You should keep your money! Way to go Jesus!! You saved a young life and everyone who personally knows her. Buy something nice for you and your family.

Thank you for stepping up and doing the right thing. Saw a reality show yesterday from LA that made me sick (spoiled, ungrateful, profane people)and then I read your story. Happy to know that there are still wonderful people around - you made my day! Keep us updated on your daughter. My prayers for her and all your family.
