Heard On-Air

Jordan works at a store in Louisiana, and recently, he noticed a young man named Jack watching him as he refilled the coolers. Jack is autistic and he was fascinated by the restock. So, Jordan invited him to help. He said, “Come on! I’ll show you how I do it!” And the two worked together to fill the coolers.

Jack’s dad recorded everything and his sister, Delaney, posted it to facebook, saying, “We all know autism makes going out difficult, and sometimes grocery stores can be a challenge. This young man took the time to slow down and allow Jack to help for over 30 minutes, guiding him as he finished his task. He could have ignored him. He could have made an excuse and said he couldn’t allow him to help. Instead, he let him have his moment and in turn gave my family a moment we will never forget.”

Everyone that saw the video was so inspired that a GoFundMe was started for Jordan to help him go to college to study to be a math teacher.
