This heroic man risked his life to save complete strangers. In a beautiful twist, complete strangers have reached out to thank this amazing man for his actions.
Jon Meis, the Seattle Pacific University student who heroically tackled a gunman on the school’s campus on June 5, 2014, has had his wedding registry and honeymoon paid for by grateful strangers.
When Jon noticed the gunman reloading his gun after shooting three people (killing one), he pepper-sprayed the man and put the shooter in a chokehold until other students rushed to help him. His heroic actions most certainly prevented more people from getting hurt or killed.
Many strangers wanted to thank Jon for his heroism and found a way to do just that.
It turns out Jon, 22, will be marrying his fiancé, Kaylie, in just two weeks.
Within a short time, every item on their wedding registry had been purchased and over $42,000 has been raised for the couple’s future!
“I’m proud of the selfless actions that my roommate, Jon Meis, showed today taking down the shooter,” fellow student Matt Garcia wrote on Twitter. “He is a hero.”
