This present has "a little bit of charisma."

A jeweler in Chattanooga provided the perfect Valentine's Day gift to a local fire official who was injured in an automobile crash.

Matthew Mann, fire chief at Walker State Prison, was involved in a head-on collision while on the way to Rossville, GA, on Jan. 19 with his department, WRCB-TV reports. He suffered numerous fractures to the arms and legs, along with internal bleeding.

In the days that followed, Mann underwent numerous surgeries, and he's been participating in physical therapy.

Throughout his recovery, Jessica Strange, whom he had been dating for a month at the time of the crash, stayed by his side. That inspired him to pop the question — even though he couldn't leave the hospital to shop for a ring.

Hearing about the situation, Jerry Tessmann of Dayle May Jewelers decided to help by donating an engagement ring.

“One that has a little bit of charisma," Tessmann told WRCB. "She is going to love it!”

The news station reports: "Now just days from saying 'I do,' the couple calls this a happy ending to a difficult chapter, as they look ahead to their lives together."

Tessmann says her business tries to do good deeds in the community whenever possible.
