A struggling waitress’ life was completely transformed when the Fox 5 Surprise Squad dropped a massive tip.
Jessica Reboredo is a waitress and a struggling mother of four children. Her husband’s cancer situation was so dire, he had to be flown from Vegas to LA.
She now has to travel thousands of miles to see her husband, and he desperately needs her by his side.
She has even gone so far as sleeping in her car because she can’t afford a hotel when she visits him.
Her second-grade teacher, Kimberly, had always known how sweet Jessica was, so she kept in touch with her and has since become a second mother figure to her.
“I met Jessica when she was 7 years old, here in Las Vegas, and I was her second-grade teacher”, Kimberly says. “She was sweet and kind, and I always wanted to have a daughter. We have stayed in contact ever since then.”
What Jessica didn’t know was that she had a guardian angel.
Kimberly remembers, “You know, when I got to this restaurant, she was pregnant. It was like ‘Great, this is something exciting we get to experience with her!’ and… then this happened…”
Kimberly contacted the Fox 5 Surprise Squad to see if they could do anything for the struggling mother in her time of need. No one expected them to go this far.
During just a normal regular day of work, several hidden cameras were placed throughout the restaurant. As she waited on tables, she was stunned when each customer began to leave bigger tips.
It started from $200, but by the end of the day, Jessica had racked up an amazing $12,000, and it was all thanks to Surprise Squad.
Jessica was in tears, but there was more. She was also given a car to commute back and forth to see her husband, and hotel accommodations were made for when she is there.

An honest hats off to the Surprise Squad! The world remains a beautiful place.
