When Justin was just 9 months old his father died. Justin’s dad, Army 1st Lt. Jonathan Rozier was killed defending his country in Iraq. Jessica was of course heartbroken but knowing that her son would have to grow up without his father made things a little tougher.
Justin is now 15 years old and he longs just as strongly now as ever for a connection with his dad. So he told him mom that what he wanted most was to have a car that his dad once owned.
Sadly Jessica had to sell Jon’s Celica not long after he passed. So when she heard this request she hoped for a miracle and headed to facebook.
When Kyle Fox saw Jessica’s post he knew he had to help. Kyle didn’t just track down a car like the one Jon had owned, he tracked down Jon’s actual car.
He then took up donations to buy the car, and enlisted a group of volunteer mechanics to make the car like new so they could surprise Justin.
Kyle and Jessica worked together to keep all of this a secret from Justin until it was time for his birthday. Finally it was time and Kyle drove the car from Utah all the way to Texas to surprise Justin for his birthday.
And when you see this teen’s reaction to this incredible gift you’ll be reaching for the tissues. And how a car brought this sacrificial family some closure is truly beautiful. God bless this family and the incredible people who made this possible!
