Sometimes you just can’t prepare yourself for what life throws at you. Recently I had a Theme Park University reader bring a situation to my attention. Jacob Gowing, a former Jaws Skipper at Universal Studios Florida, is about to undergo two brain surgeries.
It turns out a web of cysts in his brain started giving him seizures, which are now turning into tumors. The good news is that Jacob has insurance and doesn’t have to pay for the procedures out-of-pocket. However, there are still co-pays, deductibles, and living expenses that need to be paid while he’s out of work. As a fellow theme park fan, I just ask that you click over to his crowdfunding page and share this with whomever you can. Thanks.
