UA Good Samaritan: Trezdun Jackson
There is so much hate and ugliness in the world; I am sorry to say they have even seeped into our churches. Sooo, finding this story this morning gives me hope in the world although, we always have hope with G-d.
We will do our best to keep your spirits up here at UA, and provide a respite from the world with all its division and strife. We have choices; we can laugh or we can cry, and there “ain’t nothing” wrong with some good clean fun, and uplifting stories!
Proverb 17:22 (NKJV) A merry heart does good like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.
On August 13th I was blessed with the most generous act of kindness my soul has ever witnessed. I am a local Deland resident that is very grateful for what I have, but it is honest to say that I don’t have much.
While I was finishing up some shopping at Walmart with my five children, I went to the checkout center and was informed that my food stamps were not valid; I did not have 20 dollars to my name. I immediately burst into tears and begged the cashier for mercy.
Out of nowhere a young man wearing a Stetson football shirt handed me $100 and left his groceries behind him. I believe his name was Trezdun Jackson. I was so overwhelmed with this act that I really didn’t have a chance to properly thank him.
Please relay this message to the young man and let him know that his help will never be forgotten and we are more than extremely grateful for the money he gave us. Thank G-d for people like him.
P.S. We are now Stetson Hatters fans. Go Hatters!
Trez is just a normal college student, pinching pennies to get by, eating peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches and relying on mom and dad to help him defray costs.
Then why, Trez?
Why give a woman you don’t even know $100 at Wal-Mart?
“The items in my cart were irrelevant,” Trez says. “She had kids she was trying to feed. You could tell she was having a rough time of it. I didn’t really think about it; it just seemed like the right thing to do.”
It is a sometimes crazy world that we live in, a world that has become so noisy that we seldom get to hear the true song of sports anymore.
Then you come across Trez Jackson, a good kid with a bright future who is lending a hand, not raising one, to a struggling woman.
