Montclair Rallies To Support Young Man With COVID-19

A GoFundMe page created Monday Montclair’s Jordan Tassy, has received an outpouring of support and raised more than $20,000 in seven hours. Tassy was hospitalized on March 16 after getting diagnosed with COVID-19 the day before.

Jordan’s mother, Norma Tassy, writes:

My beloved son Jordan was diagnosed with Covid-19 on March 15th. On March 16th, after a night of not feeling well, Jordan left our home by ambulance headed for the Mountainside Hospital Emergency Room. At the time, we believed he would be treated and released. By midday on the 16th Jordan was on a ventilator and we were told that his chance of survival was slim.

Jordan faces a long hospitalization, as he has severe Covid Pneumonia in both lungs. And a host of other challenges that come with Covid. Following his release from Mountainside I am anticipating a large amount of unmet medical expenses. And I would love to have your financial support.

The outpouring of love and generosity that we have already received is deeply meaningful and so appreciated. If you can help in this way as well, it would be great.

All day, I speak to Jordan with my heart and I say “you are the light in my eyes and the love in my heart. Please Jordan, please come back to us”. I need him. His family needs him. The world needs him.

I love and thank you all for making this unbearable burden a tiny bit lighter.
