Act of kindness for autistic teen goes viral


BATON ROUGE, La. (WSPA) — Stocking shelves at a grocery store isn’t the most glamorous job. But the chance to stock a cooler was a dream-come-true for an autistic teen in Louisiana.

Jack Ryan Edwards’ family tells WAFB TV that the 17-year-old loves the cooler at his local store.

Jordan Taylor, a store employee, said Jack Ryan asked for orange juice and watched him.

Jack Ryan helped him for half an hour.

Someone filmed them and the video has gone viral.

Jack’s family is grateful to Jordan for making it possible.

“I’ve always heard the things that people do when no one’s watching is their true character. And you didn’t know how many people were going to end up seeing you do that obviously. You just did it out of the kindness of your heart,” Jack’s sister, Delaney Alwosaibi, told Jordan when they recently met. 

Jordan tells WAFB that he was happy to make someone else happy.
