The singer talked about the night of February 7, 2016, when his son Jacob Turner was involved in a serious auto accident. Jacob was critically injured after crashing his vehicle into a guardrail at a high rate of speed during the early morning hours of February 8 in Harlingen, Texas.
Turner opened up to KXTN’s Bigg Boyee about what it was like receiving the news of the accident and having to make the long four hour drive from Crystal City to Harlingen. He also talked about receiving news from doctors to prepare for the worst, his son was in a medically-induced coma because of severe brain damage and there wasn’t much more the doctors could do for Jacob at that point. Jesse knew it was bad when the hospital chaplain came to talk to him and the family.
Jesse says these past few months since the accident have been the hardest of his life.
He also mentioned that Jacob is recovery very slowly from the accident.
