When struggling young waitress and mother of 4 sees her tip, she can’t believe her eyes

A young waitress was thrown a much needed lifeline, when she found herself suddenly needing to care for her gravely ill husband, while working and looking after 4 children.

Jessica’s husband was suddenly diagnosed with deadly cancer. He had to be flown from Las Vegas to Los Angeles for immediate treatment. In his desperate fight against the disease, he needed his wife’s support to get him through. Rushing to her husband’s side after working long hours and traveling large distances, she resorted to sleeping in her old car to save money.

Through all of her tribulations, Jessica never expected anything from her former 2nd grade teacher with whom she had formed a strong bond. Kimberly loved Jessica, and had always admired her kind and sweet nature.  So Kimberly did an angelic thing …

Kimberly contacted Fox 5 Surprise Squad and told them about Jessica. Fox 5 immediately put a plan into place. They put hidden cameras in the restaurant where Jessica was serving, and arranged for some “customers” to tip her. As Jessica was going about her work as usual with her kind smile, she kept on getting bigger and bigger “tips.”

And it didn’t stop there …

Fox 5 Surprise squad revealed themselves and told Jessica they had something for her. She was presented with a $200 dollar bill, then $300, and then $1,000. Jessica was overwhelmed with emotion, and could not stop thanking everyone – especially her guardian angel Kimberley.


She was given a new car and free hotel accommodation so that she could manage to stand by her man.

Whenever we feel alone in the world, remember there will surely be people around us who care. Please share this waitress’ stunning $12,000 tip story to encourage others in a similar situation!
