Ultimately, Jason's organ donation had lifesaving results. His organs helped save the lives of at least three people waiting to receive transplants. "Out of all the bad, something good came," Charlotte says.

Fifty-eight-year-old Ronald, who was suffering from congestive heart failure, received Jason's heart. Forty-year-old David had coped with diabetes for 25 years and dialysis for nine when he received one of Jason's kidneys and his pancreas. Jason's other kidney went to Antwan, a 15-year-old boy who was living with only one failing kidney at the time.

Ronald shows his gratitude for Charlotte and Emmitt and the gift of life their son gave to him. "I'm thrilled and delighted to be a part of Jason's legacy. I'm a testimony to God's mercy and grace," Ronald says. "This was God's plan, and I'm grateful."
