For 9-year-old Jace Rohlf of Ohio, spotting the familiar brown UPS truck on his street is the highlight of his day.
Jace has Angelman syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes delayed development and problems with balance, speech, and intellect. While he is nonverbal, he doesn’t need words to express his delight when he sees his favorite delivery drivers!
Brandy Rohlf, his mom, said her youngest son sits by the window and waits for the drivers to go by every day.
It didn’t take long for them to notice their most dedicated fan, so they began looking out for him too. These days, whenever they see his smiling face in the window, they always honk their horns and wave cheerfully!

Just knowing they’re out there makes Jace happy, but on Christmas Eve, these two kind drivers went the extra mile to bring his family some joy.
Brandy was shocked when she opened the front door to find the drivers standing on her porch with wrapped presents for her son. They said they knew exactly how excited Jace gets whenever they stop by, so they figured it was about time for Jace to become an honorary UPS driver!
“You’re part of the team!” they told the excited child as they handed him his gifts. The presents included a UPS hat, a UPS truck, and some candy.
“He was so excited, and I was so touched I could’ve cried,” Brandy wrote on Facebook. “Sorry my video is all over the place and I’m giggling in the background. I just wanted everyone to know how amazing these two gentlemen are. They make Jace’s day EVERY single day! I hope they know how special they are.”
Neither man wanted anything in return; they simply hoped to show Jace that they see him and love his enthusiasm! It’s so important for every child to feel that kind of joy and acceptance. Well done, gentlemen!
