When Jesse was just 3 months old, he underwent a successful, five-hour open heart surgery at the hospital to repair a congenital heart defect. Today, 4-year-old Jesse loves to go to preschool, play in the park, ride his bike, and hang out with his older brother Jack.

In 2014, Jesse and his family participated in the Summer Scamper and raised more than $2,500 for the hospital’s Children’s Heart Center to support other heart patients. “We are so thankful for Dr. Reddy, the nursing staff, and all of the community members who give to the hospital!” says Jesse’s mom, Cynthia. “Thank you to all the Summer Scamper-ers for supporting our son Jesse!”
