Robert “Rob” Jones is an Army Veteran with four years of service from 2000-2004 with the 82nd Airborne Division Food Service. When not jumping out of airplanes, he was helping feed his fellow soldiers and was deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan.
After his time in the Army, Rob stayed in his field working in restaurants, both in the front and back of the house, as a chef, bartender, and server.
Rob battled high blood pressure and in 2019 became very sick. He was sent to the hospital, where he found out he had kidney failure, and was quickly put on dialysis. He has an adventurous side and enjoys snowboarding and mountain biking and would like to get back to doing them again. The mental and physical stress of his diagnosis and treatment make it difficult for him to focus on the things of life.
A new kidney would help him have a new outlook for his future and at 41, Rob would have time left to start a new passion, getting into real estate! This young man needs your help. He has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
