Jack Ryan’s story

Here’s another story of Jack Ryan who lives with autism. The thing is he gets easily fixated on things and sometimes going to the supermarket with him might be a bit difficult.

However, this time it was totally different because of a supermarket employee, Jordan Taylor, who spent over 30 minutes with Jack, stocking shelves.

Delaney Alwosaibi shared the clip where her younger brother, Jack, was stocking shelves at Rouses Market in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

When people saw the clip, they organized a fund for raising money that would allow Jack Ryan to enter a college. Today it exceeds $100,000. And the man totally deserves that.
