FIJI FRAT LSU GRADS TOTALLY PAY OFF FRAT MOTHER COOK’S MORTGAGE YEARS LATER
So I don’t know about you, but I need a feel good story right about now. And somehow, this feel good story involves a fraternity? In the United States? Who woulda thunk it? The fraternity is the Phi Gamma Deltas, aka Fiji, from the Louisiana State University. It seems that a bunch of Fiji graduates heard that their former fraternity cook had retired. Evidently, many of them looked to her as a mother figure while they were in school. So, they decided to go on and totally pay off their frat mother’s mortgage. Really!
FRAT MOTHER RETIRED, WHICH MEANS SHE STILL WORKED TWO JOBS TO COVER MORTGAGE
So no, her mortgage wasn’t an insane amount. But it was still over $51,000, in her retirement, left to pay off. The mother frat cook’s name is Jessie Hamilton. She worked as a cook at the Fiji hose at LSU for 14 years. She just retired at the age of 74 years. While working as the cook there, she was always active. She prepared all three meals every single day for all the Fiji brothers. But she was always available to talk if any of them needed her ear for a bit of advice. And they never forgot that, or her.
CHILD OF A SHARECROPPER, SHE WORKED HER WHOLE LIFE, NOW FRAT MOTHER NEEDS TO ENJOY SPARE TIME
Jessie Hamilton worked her entire life, and never had much early on. She was the daughter of a sharecropper, and once worked four jobs at the same time to make ends meet as a single mother. But she always wanted to own a home of her very own, even if it meant that she had to work every day the rest of her life. So yes, she “retired.” Which means she was still working two jobs to make payments on her home at the age of 74. Fortunately, her Fiji frat “sons” remembered everything she gave them, and showed how much they still appreciate her.
Now? Jessie may have to learn what to do with a little spare time. She’s never had any before!
