Jason went above and beyond

  • Print

I gave my daughter and son-in-law a large (2 foot by 3 foot) canvas print for Christmas.

When they went home on Boxing Day, they couldn’t carry everything into the house in one trip so Dave left the print on the car roof in the garage, intending to get it in the morning. But he neglected to tell Kara.

The next morning Kara went to the doctor and didn’t notice the box on the roof as it was hidden by the roof rack. Later that afternoon, I received a phone call from somebody named Jason who had found the print leaning against a tree in a small park on Osborne Street. The box must have blown off the car, and somebody picked it up and leaned it against the tree. The print was not damaged at all.

Jason had found my address on the box, looked up my phone number and called me. I asked him to call Kara as she was close to where he was, which he agreed to do and Dave went immediately to pick the print up.

I didn’t get Jason’s last name, but he went above and beyond by tracking me down and then calling Kara. Thank you, Jason. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
