Bring Jimmy Pequeno Home

Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs helping to raise $100,000 for deputy’s injured son

LAKE FOREST, CA, December 22, 2011 – Jimmy Pequeno, the 18-year-old son of an Orange County Sheriff’s deputy, remains in a coma after being badly injured in a car accident on July 1. Jimmy, a senior at El Toro High School, suffered multiple brain traumas, broken bones and other injuries. He has endured numerous surgeries and procedures in his fight towards recovery but six months later he has yet to regain “full consciousness.”

The Association of Orange County Deputy Sheriffs is assisting the community to raise $100,000 for construction improvements to the Pequeno home in order to bring Jimmy home from the hospital. The current layout of the family’s 1,066 square foot home makes it nearly impossible to care for Jimmy’s needs.

Several Orange County restaurants are helping in our fundraising efforts, donating 15 percent of their meal receipts for the Bring Jimmy Home fundraiser on the following days:

December 28
All Orange County Peppino’s Restaurants
All day

December 29
Mountain Mike’s Pizza
22942 Ridge Route Drive, Suite 100
Lake Forest, CA 92630
All day

December 30
Fuddruckers
23621 El Toro Road
Lake Forest, CA 92630
All day

Customers need to tell their server they are there for the Bring Jimmy Home fundraiser and the restaurants will take care of the rest.

Jimmy’s father, Rob, a 20-year retired Marine who now serves the city of Lake Forest as a Sheriff’s deputy, and mother, Angela, have been by his side around the clock since the accident. Neither parent has been able to return to work and insurance benefits are severely strained. Donations would transform an existing patio into a room that would be fully equipped with the necessary rehabilitation equipment, lift systems, and bed and bath to accommodate Jimmy at home.

  1. This is really disgrace to ask for money when he, as a Orange County Deputy Sheriff, has the best health insurance paid by public and coming for more.

    Besides, his son was in an accident probably caused by him yet he as a Orange County Deputy Sheriff makes Thomas Kelly out of other fathers son.

    I have not seen this dude publicly condemning Fullerton COPs.

    I will give him nothing!

  2. In response to the cold hearted dick who posted negative things above , I really hope this boy makes it and has a full recovery and its pretty sad how the dickhead above me talks nothing but negative stuff about this boy and his family… Im pretty sure if u were in the same situation u wouldnt feel this way. I hope if something bad like this ever happens to u and ur family NO ONE HELPS U U INSENSITIVE BASTARD!!! ALSO, GOD IS WATCHING AND WILL PUNISH IN SOME WAY, SHAPE OR FORM! MAY GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY , I HEARD THE RYAN SEACREST CALL AND THIS FAMILY REALLY TOUCHED MY HEART!

    REBECCA

    I guess you are not any better than the “insensitive bastard who posted negative things above”… REBECA.

    Since you have invoked “THE GOD IS WATCHING”, in this case THE GOD was not watching!…. Why?

    Probably sitting in the donuts shop or helping Saint Mikuláš in delivering toys for good kids.

    Besides THE GOD does not punish good people, however, SATAN does….. they say.

    So pray to SATAN to punish “insensitive bastard” — sensitive REBECCA.
