incredibly proud

I am so very proud of my cousin Jason Bond. He is more like a brother than he ever was a cousin. We spent most of our lives together until he moved away.


He lives in New Jersey now and he is an amazing man. He has been in charge for many years of taking care of the trees that are to be used in the 9/11 memorial at ground zero. He started them from saplings out on some land and has nurtered them into beautiful trees that are now at the site of the memorial.


He has been on the news and interviewed for documentaries. His wife sent this to all of the family and friends...so that we could watch the documentary.


Keep up the good work Jason. I love you and i'm so very proud of you!!!


 





Just a reminder that Rising: The Rebuilding of Ground Zero <http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/the-rising/>  will air on the Discovery Channel this evening.  We wish there was no need for this Memorial or this documentary, but we are proud that our family was able to be part of this important, historical project.  The show was interesting last week.  Jason was filmed and interviewed for the documentary, though I am not sure which episode he will be in.


He continues to be interviewed almost daily.  We have no idea when and where these interviews will air (at this point many of the interviewers do not have the information, but are just saying that it will air on the days leading up to 9/11 and during and after the ceremonies on CNN, FOX and several syndicated networks such as ABC, CBS and NBC), but you may just turn on your TV and see him!   






Here is Jason Being interviewed. So proud of him

  1. Hi Stayce, We've watched these episodes and they were very inspiring! We are going to NYC in Dec for our 25th anniversary and will be visiting ground zero...I'm sure it will be an emotional day for us. Congrats to Jason..the park is beautiful! Hope to see you soon at a class.
