Blog 006: 1/26/17 Make A Wish Jacob

By Christina L

What an AWESOME send off today for our Make A Wish Kiddo!

Team SAN had the privilege of meeting 11 year old, Jacob and his family.

We learned through WISH San Diego Chapter that Jacob loves everything football. Jacob’s Wish is to be in Orlando for the Pro Bowl!

Luckily, NFL tight end for the Atlanta Falcons, Levine T has close relatives who work for Southwest here in San Diego. We have Ray T (Levine’s brother), Jacob T (cousin), Enoch T (uncle), Winfred S (uncle), Tuuese T (uncle). These guys were informed last minute about Jacob’s passion for football and it made them want to meet Jacob personally.

Truly thankful for their hearts they went above and beyond for this little boy today! As a gift from Levine’s family, Team SAN presented Jacob with a NFL Atlanta Falcons Football, signed by Levine T himself and many other key players of the Falcons Team. It gets better! Just sitting across from Jacob during all the excitement this morning, were 3 cheerleaders from the 49ers.

They were so happy for Jacob and offered to help with anything while the family is in Orlando!!

Our Team made the announcement to acknowledge our Wish Family, and everyone in the gate area clapped and cheered! Jacob and family were the first to board the flight. He got a chance to meet the inflight crew and he hung out with the pilots for a bit. The Dad and Uncle kept saying “this is best welcoming party…” It really warms the heart to see Jacob smile!
