Benefit for the Jeche family

Posted in Chatfield Features

The Jeche family sustained serious injuries from a car accident.

Several months after a severe car accident friends and family of the Dennis Jeche family are putting together a benefit to help with expenses. Dennis, Brenda, and Ashley Jeche were involved in a the car accident in Goodhue County on October 20, 2012.

As a result of the car accident all of the Jeche family suffered from serious injuries. Brenda was admitted to the hospital with a concussion and also had fluid on the brain.

Dennis was hospitalized and suffered from multiple fractured ribs, a punctured lung, bruised kidneys, and also a separated right shoulder. Dennis has had one surgery on his right shoulder and will be facing a second surgery on the shoulder in the future.

Ashley was in the hospital with many serious injuries including a punctured lung, a fractured right clavicle, fractured vertebrae and multiple broken ribs on the right side of her body. She has had several surgeries to reconstruct her clavicle and her severely broken ribs.

Due to the serious multiple injuries each family member sustained in the car accident, the Jeche family will not be able to return to work for a long period of time. Brenda has returned to work at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., but on a very limited basis. Dennis, who works for Griffin Construction of Chatfield, Minn., will be unable to return to work for several months.
