There are hundreds of thousands of first responders throughout the Metroplex who risk their lives and put others first everyday. They all deserve to be honored and we’re highlighting a different first responder each week.  Our weekly honoree is....

Jennifer B. Andrews, Children’s Hospital (week of July 6)

We have a child with special needs, and that means lots of hospital stays. Jennifer has been one of the many nurses that has cared for our Jackson from when he was a baby, till even now, at the age of 13. But this is not why I am nominating Jennifer, I am nominating Jennifer, because COVID-19 has fortunately not impacted children very much. And therefore, the Children's hospital has not been as busy as those caring for adults. So Jennifer took it upon herself to volunteer to go to New York, the hub of where the virus is, and volunteered to work, to help give relief to the nurses that have been in the midst of this from day 1. This to me is so amazing, and really tells just how special Jennifer is, not only to us and our family, but to all those she cares for!  We love you Jennifer!  Jackson sends big hugs and you are our vote to be honored!

Brent Thorn, Coppell Fire Dept. (week of June 29)

Brent has been the guy to run toward danger ever since I met him in 2005. He went into the military at 19 years old in 2006 as a Master at Arms (Navy Police). He protected his base by standing guard, he was then deployed to Afghanistan for a year in 2010. There, he was personal security for high-ranking visitors on base. He had to do recons of their route to make sure no IEDs or threats where on their path to keep everyone as safe as possible. Since leaving the military, he went to Fire, EMT, and Paramedic school and is a Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of Coppell. When I think of first responders, he is the first person to come to mind. He selflessly puts himself before all others in his profession AND in his personal life. In addition to his professional sacrifices, he also uses his personal time to disciple our next generation through our church's youth group, volunteers in the children's ministry, builds custom cornhole boards for charities benefitting all kinds of causes, and leads his family to Christ. I can think of no one more deserving of a small Thank You than him.


Brandon Sutter, Wise County EMS (week of June 22)

Brandon has worked in EMS for almost 20 years now. He has sacrificed so much in those 20 years for his community. He has worked his way up throughout his career and is now a supervisor with Wise County EMS. He has been deployed to Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy. He is trained for swift water rescue and high risk ropes rescue, so he is on a special task force team for the entire Metroplex and can be deployed at anytime (including the recent riots). Not only does he work countless hours for Wise County, he is a Pastor at a church - The Living Word Country Church of Texas. He loves leading people to the Lord and being a light in the darkness. He is an amazing man and I hope y'all can honor him to show a small token of our appreciation.
