The team is busy this holiday season helping a local man gift $1 million to deserving people in eastern Idaho. Secret Santa is a real person who wants to remain anonymous and hopes to bless as many individuals in our community as he can.

Jeff is just an amazing person who is kind to everyone. He never complains about hard situations and is always more concerned about how you are doing than himself.

He is 63 years old and works hard to provide for his wife and son. When COVID-19 started, friends and family members were worried about Jeff because he has a history of health issues. But his wife, Tina, ended up contracting the virus and spent seven months on a ventilator fighting for her life.

Jeff drove to Utah on his two days off every week to be with her and he will never forget the day she was released to come home. The doctors said they never thought that she was going to make it.

Tina is on many medications and oxygen and continues to fight for her health. Jeff drives a car that is not reliable and the heater does not work. He never complains and if you ask him how he is doing, his response is, “All the better for seeing you!”

Secret Santa asked the East Idaho News team to go surprise Jeff and Tina with an early Christmas gift. Check out the video above!
