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.

Want More “Me” Time? Wilkerson Will Get You There!

It was time. Teri Allen and her brother, Nick Pavlich, Jr., had been at the helm of Dearborn Jewelers of Plymouth in Plymouth, Mich., for decades. Their father, Nick Pavlich, Sr., had founded the store in 1950, but after so many wonderful years helping families around Michigan celebrate their most important moments, it was time to get some “moments” of their own. Teri says Wilkerson was the logical choice to run their retirement sale. “They’re the only company that specializes in closing jewelry stores,” she says. During the sale, Teri says a highlight was seeing so many generations of customers who wanted to buy “that one last piece of jewelry from us.” Would she recommend Wilkerson? Absolutely. “There is no way that I would have been able to do this by myself.”
