Car Salesman Jake Blasius –  Helps Army Vet With Prosthetic Legs 

A kind gesture goes a long way just like the gift of giving keeps on giving! Greenville Texas Hyundai has an amazing car salesman on their hand by the name of Jake Blasius. As we were scrolling on Facebook today which we are kind of late being that it was posted Monday but it’s better late than NEVER. It’s amazing how Jake took time out of his busy day to be of assistance to Hank The Tank as he calls him. Story posted below! 

” I’m walking out of the Walmart next door to Greenville Hyundai, when I see this elderly man in a wheel chair wearing a Vietnam Vet hat with two prosthetic legs. He is talking to the Door greeter at the exit and I overhear him say “it’s not to far! Maybe a mile and a half down the road”. I stop, look at him, and say “do you have a ride?” He replies with “yes sir, I’m sitting in it”. 

It really took a minute to hit me…

I couldn’t believe this man, who you could tell was in constant pain, traveled 2 miles down I-30, in a non- electric wheelchair, using his prosthetic legs to inch himself along. It had to have taken him hours to make it all the way here, so without asking if I could, I started pushing him over to Greenville Hyundai. When we finally made it, I grabbed the keys to a Chrysler Pacifica, pulled it up, helped him into the front seat, and asked him where we were headed. He gets kind of choked up and says “motel 6” On the way he asked me why I did it. Jokingly, I replied “so you’ll buy a vehicle from me of course”. He laughs and says “Son, I know you’re joking and no matter what the reason, you’re a blessing!” 

I can’t even describe how those words made me feel. What an inspiration this man is, sacrificing his legs for my freedom, and he calls me a blessing!?

Be someone’s blessing today, and you may find it hard to determine who is the true blessing! 

God Bless my new friend “Hank The Tank”

There you have it sweet tea ☕️ and again remember the gift of giving keeps on giving and a kind gesture goes a long way! Share and comment to show them love.
