The worker at Rouses Market extended an invitation to the autistic adolescent to assist him in stocking shelves.
Jack Ryan Edwards, who was 17 years old at the time, and his father, Sid Edwards, were strolling around their neighborhood grocery store in Baton Rouge when the teenager abruptly halted.Jack Ryan, who suffers from autism, was seen looking at the worker, Jordan Taylor, who was stocking orange juice.
It was not out of the ordinary for Jack Ryan, who has autism, to develop fixations on various things. Edwards first believed that his kid wanted juice, but it didn’t take him long to understand that Ryan was enthralled by the work.
Taylor also saw this, and gave the young man a bottle of water, but the young man did not respond to him. The light suddenly went on. Later, Taylor shared his thoughts, saying, “Something in the back of my mind was just like, ‘Ask if he wants to assist you.'”
The next thirty minutes were spent by the employee and the teenager working together to stock the refrigerator.
The recording was begun when Edwards pulled out his phone and began to use it. On the video, the man’s voice can be heard saying, “I’m watching a miracle in action right before my own eyes.” According to Edwards, the vast majority of random people do not comprehend his kid, much less make an effort to communicate with him.
“One of the things that I’ve realized is that our society does not accept autistic children. It is just out of the question for such children to join our planet. Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi, sister of Jack Ryan, was similarly affected by the film as her father and decided to post it on Facebook to share it with others.
“This young guy took the time to slow down and enable Jack Ryan to aid for nearly 30 minutes, coaching him as he accomplished his job,” she wrote. “He had the option of ignoring him. He may have offered an explanation and said that he was unable to let the other person to assist.
Instead, he chose to step back and let him enjoy the moment, which in turn presented me and my family with an opportunity that we will never forget.”
After meeting him, Alwosaibi found out that Taylor has a passion for mathematics and aspires to become a teacher. As a result, she decided to launch a GoFundMe campaign in the hopes of raising one hundred thousand dollars to pay for his education.
She was able to raise almost 135,000 dollars. As a token of their gratitude, the Neighbors Federal Credit Union even presented Taylor with a brand-new vehicle.
Taylor plays down the significance of his good act. He expressed his happiness by saying, “I was simply thrilled that I could make someone else happy and brighten their day.”
Regarding Jack Ryan, who has shown up to the shop on several occasions to assist Taylor in restocking the shelves, Rouses Market has extended an offer for a full-time position to him. It only goes to show that showing respect to other people may result in an endless supply of benefits.
