The Future Home of Army Specialist B.J. Jackson

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Here is the future home of Army Specialist Robert Jackson and family in Orlando, FL! Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. has been involved in this build and is a proud supporter of Building Homes for Heroes. We are very excited for the upcoming date when B.J. and his family can move into this wonderful home and join the Orlando community.

Army Specialist B.J. Jackson of the 186th Military Police Company was selected to be part of a team whose mission was to set up camp and headquarters for the entire unit’s arrival in Iraq. On August 7, 2003, B.J. was driving a Humvee with other soldiers through Baghdad. The vehicle triggered a roadside bomb and was immediately hit by a rocket propelled grenade. A thick, black smoke cloud billowed and the soldiers were besieged by Iraqis firing AK-47s. B.J. was trapped in the burning wreckage.  Several hours lapsed as soldiers fought off the insurgents and worked to extract B.J. from his vehicle to transport him to safety. He was then airlifted to an Iraqi field hospital for immediate care, then to Kuwait and finally to Germany for additional treatment.

After being stabilized, he arrived at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas on August 12th.  Over the first five days, Jackson received 25 units of blood.  To help the healing process, he was placed in a medically-induced coma.  He remained in a coma for a month.  Jackson lost both legs below the knee and suffered severe burns on his arms, legs and back, and flash burns on his face and head.  He spent nearly 50 days in the post burn unit.

B.J. and his wife Abby currently reside in Iowa with daughters Brilynn and Hailey, and sons Conner, Nolan, Parker and Drake.  Building Homes for Heroes will build the Jackson family a home in Orlando (9901 Sweetleaf Street off Narcoossee Road / Lake Nona).  It will be their dream home in a wonderful neighborhood.  For more details and photos visit:
