Jeffrey Harrison got the surprise of a lifetime from his personal hero, NBA legend Michael Jordan!

Jeffrey, who is a huge fan of MJ, gained internet fame just last month after playing ball in Michael’s full 1990s Chicago Bulls uniform. The video made his way to Michael through Idaho station KREM 2, who surprised Jeffrey with a personal phone call and gifts!

MJ went all out for Jeffrey, sending boxes of shoes, shirts, shorts, and sweats, with personalized notes to the man’s home in Idaho. He called Jeffrey as well, which was super exciting for the superfan! “I hope you enjoy yourself (and your gifts), and I’m gonna be watching for you, OK?” MJ said.

Jeffrey, who is autistic, started watching MJ at just four years old, and even received his own nickname: “CDA MJ.” Unable to work, Jeffrey even spends his days putting in work on the court, attempting to master the legend’s moves!

It’s really nice that Michael gave Jeffrey this special delivery, and took the time to speak with him personally. This is a special moment that Jeffrey won’t ever forget!

  1. It’s sweet when people take the time out to help others. Extra nice when a celebrity does it because so many see and are inspired to help others too!
