Referrals for Jacob

It is with great pride and humility that Nelson Family Realty has chosen to be a corporate sponsor of the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center for 2017. For every referral we receive, we will donate $500 towards this amazing organization, with a goal of $15,000 by the end of the year. If you know of any family, friends, neighbors or co-workers who are considering a move, please do not hesitate to refer them to us. We would be honored to put our knowledge to work for them, as well as expand our support for the JWRC. We are already well on our way.

Most Minnesotans know the story of Jacob Wetterling. On Oct. 22, 1989, 11-year-old Jacob was abducted from a group of three boys and his whereabouts were not known for 27 years. Jacob may be gone, but his spirit lives on through the strength of his incredible family and the efforts of the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center. I became a father of four, starting just a couple of years after Jacob’s disappearance. He has never been far from my mind and he has helped me hold my kids very tight.

From the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center: “In September of 2016 we learned the very sad news that Jacob was found deceased. We did not want Jacob’s story to end this way. The Wetterlings had a choice to walk into bitterness and anger or to walk into a light of what could be, a light of hope. Their choice continues to change the world.”

“Today, the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center continues the work in prevention, education, and advocacy so that other children can grow up safe and free from any harm. We encourage people to live out Jacob’s traits and be involved in the #11forJacob campaign to create a better world. Our hearts are heavy, but we are being held up by all of the people who have been a part of making Jacob’s Hope a light that will never be extinguished. It shines on in a different way. We are, and we will continue to be, Jacob’s Hope.”
