“It’s such a beautiful work of art,” Turner posted on Facebook. “When I see the yellow I think of hope, when I see the patterns it reminds me of how electric and unique my son plays, when I see the gold it reminds me of what he means to so many people, when I see the lower part that says ‘Unidos En Oración’ it reminds me of how he has brought people together through prayer, the painting of him reminds me of his cheesy smile that makes us all smile, and the words ‘Yo Te Esperare’ signify a feeling…that we are all waiting for that day when he will recover.”
Jacob Turner, the 21-year-old bass player for Siggno, has been in a coma at a South Texas hospital since crashing his vehicle into a guardrail at a high rate of speed in the early morning hours of February 8 in Harlingen.
The one-of-a-kind 24 carat gold plated Fender bass guitar was a custom made gift from Atascosa-based Texas Chrome Shop.
Jesse Turner also gave the latest update on Jacob’s recovery.
“It is going to be a long battle and a long road to recovery,” he said. “This is something that is going to take days, months, years….we don’t know so just keep him in your prayers. I cannot give specific details because it is sensitive to all of our family, but we are grateful for all the positive energy and we thank you for all the prayers. It’s been 48 days….and we all miss him, but stay positive as the only Doctor that will continue to work on him is the same Doctor that gave us life.”
Tejano Nation continues to send prayers for a speedy recovery for Jacob Turner and can’t wait to see him play the custom built bass guitar.
