What a great story… Safyre is an 8 yr old that was badly burned and lost her family in a house fire. Her only wish this Christmas was to fill a Christmas card tree with cards. She ended up receiving over 195,000 cards for Christmas this year and one of those cards was from the Jetstream Headquarters crew along with a Toys R Us gift card. This is one beautiful girl that had the best Christmas ever!!! To view the video, please click HERE.

Project Blue Light was started by a former police officer Brian Waid to show support to local law enforcement by using a blue light bulb on his front porch. JetStream purchased a few cases of bulbs for Jeff Jackson to pass out to his friends, family, and neighbors to show their support.

The local GM painted their push back, freight cart, and baggage cart in pink for the Be Pink campaign that LUS has been doing the past few years. Caitlyn sure is a beauty!
