Almost three months ago Jack Monti was involved in an accident that has changed his life for ever. A taxi cab struck him in June 6th 2016 in the morning while on his way to work in Coram, New York. On August 25th 2016 Jack Monti left St.Charles Hospital with his wife and sons along with Long Island ABATE with 20 members on motorcycles providing an escort to their home in Mastic, New York.
Jack said, “I have a long journey ahead, but ABATE showed me this is just a bump in the road. When life throws you a curve, just lean into it and you’ll be fine.”
Jack’s wife Josephine said that her family is greateful he is alive. Both sons, Noah, 17, and Luke, 12 are glad that their Daddy is home! Luke Jack’s youngest was super impressed with the escort ride home from St. Charles Hospital. Josephine and Jack’s family and friends have supported her family since the early morning in June. ‘Long Island ABATE’ to the Monti Family is in their extended family too. Josephine would like all motorists to be less distracted while operating any type of motor vehicle. In just a fraction of a second a persons life can be changed forever.
Long Island ABATE is an organization that advocates Motorcycle Awareness. President Jim Barr of Long Island Abate and all 1,600 plus members wish Jack Monti all the best in his rehabilitation. ABATE stands for American Bikers for Awareness,Training & Education
