Jesse posted a photo of Jacob on Facebook with the caption, “Jacob and his beautiful smile! How is Jacob? His progress is still slow, but we are grateful to God that is still some sort of progress. Once in while he’ll find the strength to smile…and that’s when my sky becomes Heaven. Mijito Hermosa te amo…chulo mi werko!”
Jacob was critically injured when the car he was driving crashed into a guardrail at a high rate of speed during the early morning hours of February 8, 2016 in Harlingen, Texas. He was the only occupant in the vehicle.
After being in a coma for over four months after the accident, Jacob is now slowly progressing towards recovery.
