Published

When Army Lt. Jonathan Rozier died in Baghdad last July 19, 2003, his wife was left with the harsh realities of facing life alone and raising their 9-month-old son. But the fallen soldier also left the family with a 1999 Toyota Celica that according to NBC News was “just sitting in the driveway.” Jessica Johns decided to sell it. And fifteen years later, because her son is about to get his own license, she tracked it down and with the help of the community, got the car back for his birthday.

The idea of having the car back began when she stumbled upon the vehicle’s registration. Since her son was about to get his own license, she decided that it would be a great inheritance from the father he never grew up with.

She started searching by posting the registration number and a picture of the vehicle on her social media account saying, “Can someone please help me find this car?”

“It was Jon’s car (1Lt Jonathan Rozier, KIA Iraq 7-19-03) when he died, I wasn’t thinking ahead to when Justin (his son) would be driving 15 years later. If you facebookers could work your magic and help me find it, it would be an amazing present for his 16th birthday if it hasn’t become a tin can now,” she continued.

Several days later, a reply from her post came from a woman living in Utah saying that her father possesses the car, although she wasn’t sure if her father would be willing to part with it.

“It took me 12 hours to get the courage to call him,” she said. She also recalled that the owner wanted some time to think about it but called back an hour later. She remembered him telling her, “I think that your son will get more enjoyment out of having his dad´s car than I would.”

An organization communicated with Jessica to help her raise funds and refurbish the car. It was taken back to their Texas hometown just in time for Justin’s birthday celebration.
