“What A Great Human!” Good Samaritan Finds Lost Wallet And Brings It Home.

The morning after a fresh snow, Laura Degnon and her son Jake made an upsetting discovery.

Jake had lost his wallet sometime the evening before, and, because of the snow, they weren’t sure if they’d be able to find it. Plus, they weren’t even sure where he lost it! Just as Laura and Jake began to despair, a Good Samaritan stepped in. See for yourself below!

What a great human!!!! My son, Jake realized yesterday morning that he lost his wallet Thursday night. It snowed and therefore Friday morning made it challenging for us to find it outside by his car or the last store he stopped at to get Takis! We shoveled so many places looking for it. His wallet was unusually full of quite a bit of Christmas money, college money and of course his school ID, license, debit and credit card. I was up early this morning to see him off to UofSC and then started cleaning up around the house. The doorbell rang about 8am — much to my surprise a wonderful man by the name of Juan was standing there asking if Jake lived here. I started to cry right away and asked if he found his wallet by chance. This amazing human was up early working on a Saturday morning, found Jake’s wallet in the parking lot of the store he was last at and came to our house to return it! Everything was still in there. Brightview Landscaping, you have one (censored) of an employee. Juan, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

As impressed as we are with Juan, Laura was even more so! We’re so glad Jake got his wallet and all its important contents back. It would have been hard for him to return to college without it.
