UES Eatery Goes To Bat For Manager Injured In Car Crash


EXTENSIVE MEDICAL BILLS. CBS 2’S NATALIE HAS THE STORY. IT’S MORE THAN A DINER, IT’S A COMMUNITY AT MANSION RESTAURANT ON YORK AVENUE WHERE STAFF ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN TO SUPPORT THE FAMILY OF THEIR GENERAL MANAGER. JONDRA WHO IS STILL IN A COMA A WEEK AFTER A CAR CRASH. THE SITUATION IS VERY DIFFICULT. THE SUPPORT FROM EVERYONE IS AMAZING. 49-YEAR-OLD WAS ON HIS WAY TO WORK AROUND 6:00 A.M. DECEMBER 30. WHEN POLICE SAY HE CRASHED COMING OFF THE BQE. HE HIT A LIGHT POLE AND FLIPPED. THERE WAS ALSO DAMAGE TO THE BACK END, BUT WITH NO SURVEILLANCE VIDEO, POLICE HAVEN’T DETERMINED EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED. DEVASTATING. DEVASTATING. I MEAN, JOHN IS SOMEONE WHO IS PART OF MOST PEOPLE’S EVERY DAY ROUTINE. HE SUFFERED SEVERE HEAD TRAUMA AND IN A MEDICALLY INDUCED COMA WHERE HE HAS A LONG RECOVERY AHEAD. TO HELP WITH MEDICAL BILLS, MANSION RESTAURANT IS TRYING TO RAISE $250,000 TO SUPPORT HIS WIFE AND FIVE-YEAR-OLD SON. JOHN HAS LIMITED HEALTH INSURANCE. AND LIMITED FUNDS FOR HIS FAMILY TO KEEP EVERYTHING MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION AS JOHN GOES THROUGH THIS LONG RECOVERY PROCESS. THE GO FUND ME PAGE RAISED NEARLY $25,000 IN THE LAST WEEK. CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN SHOWING UP TO MAKE CASH DONATIONS. THEY ALSO SHARED HUNDREDS OF POSTERS AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD ASKING FOR HELP. HE’S GREAT. YOU KNOW, HE’S ONE OF THE BEST. ALWAYS THINKING ABOUT THE PEOPLE. HIS WIFE SAYS HE WOULD BE OVERWELMED BY ALL OF THE LOVE. HE WILL BE VERY HAPPY THAT SO MANY PEOPLE HELP HIS SON. I THINK HE WILL BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT OUR SON. DOCTORS SAY THEY WON’T KNOW IF HE HAS PERMANENT BRAIN DAMAGE UNTIL HE COMES OUT OF THE COMA. BUT WHEN HE DOES, HIS EXTENDED FAMILY AT THE RESTAURANT WILL BE THERE TO HELP.
