Fund honoring child grants first wish

Posted: Updated:

Shortly after an Evansville child passed away this year, his family established a wish fund in his honor.

The first wish was granted at Glenwood Leadership Academy in the very classroom 12-year-old Jacob Ball spent all his time before passing away.

The special education teacher says there bouncing trampolines will help the students relieve stress at school.

Jacob's mom says it's the perfect way to honor her son.

"He was a big bouncer, he could bounce anywhere," said Tiffany Ball. "We had divits in our bed from where he bounced so much. So she bought these things with his spirit in mind. So it's just a beautiful, touching time that we're having inside."

Any special education teacher with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is eligible to receive a wish.
