Chances are, when the Stitt family raised money to buy a wheelchair accessible van to give their 17-year-old son with cerebral palsy a better quality of life, they didn’t want a star, but that doesn’t stop them from music legend Justin Timberlake step in and make his dream come true.
When his Tennessee partner Timberlake found out about the Stitts’ crowdfunding campaign, he not only jumped on the train, he decided to pay for Jake’s custom-built truck and arranged to have it delivered to the family.
“He got the story and was very moved … and wanted to get closer,” said Tim Stitt. WJHL news channel. “It was a blessing to be able to talk to that gentleman and to be able to meet Jake and see what he needed.”
Timberlake broke the news to Jake during a Zoom call. Then, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, a parade made its way to the Stitt home, announcing the arrival of the truck.
The whole family, including Jake, was ecstatic. Almost as invaluable as the truck itself is the independence it can provide Jake and his caregivers in Morristown.
While the Stitts had already raised a substantial sum to purchase the truck, Timberlake’s gift made it possible for that money to be used for Jake’s future care and expenses.
“God has always provided for us and we keep our faith and we are thankful every day,” said Tim Stitt. “It is a true meaning for Thanksgiving and everything that has happened… It is a blessing for our family to make it so that we can have peace and relax more and not have to worry is amazing. It’s very humiliating. “
