LeJuan James – popular YouTube personality parents, who have been married for over 30 years, worked day and night to take care of LeJuan and his two siblings. They both worked multiple jobs and took overnight shifts to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. They took a huge hit during the 2007 financial crisis and ended up losing two homes.
It was around this time that LeJuan’s beloved grandmother became sick with brain cancer. Finding her the best treatment and prioritizing her healthcare caused his parents even more financial and emotional hardship.
“You don’t really understand until you’re a little older, then you understand the concept of money and how hard it is to get it and how easy it is to spend it,” LeJuan told E! News. “I remember that at the end of the year in 2016, one of my new year resolutions was to do that for them.”
So, LeJuan decided it was time to pay his parents back for all the sacrifices they’d made. He secretly spent five months working with a realtor to find his parents the perfect home — and they had no idea.
Watch the moment he removes their blindfolds to show them their new home.
