MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WJHL) – A teen in Tennessee, popular for sitting outside his house surrounded by signs reading “honk if you’re happy,” received a gift Wednesday from a Tennessee-born entertainer known across the globe – Justin Timberlake.
Jake Stitt, 17, is wheelchair-bound due to his cerebral palsy, and his family does not have a wheelchair accessible van.
On Wednesday, that changed when Stitt’s family received a van from pop icon Justin Timberlake.
Timberlake found out about an effort to raise money to buy Stitt a wheelchair accessible van. He reached out to the family on Tuesday and bought it.
“He caught the story and was just very touched with what was going on with this thing and he wanted to reach out and decided that he wanted to purchase the van for Jacob and his needs,” Tim Stitt explained about Timberlake. “It was just a very blessing to be able to speak to that gentleman and for him to be able to meet Jake and see what he needed.”
