Marshawn Lynch went out of his way to return the wallet of Jason Lynch, a Marysville, Wash., resident, to its rightful owner Tuesday, KIRO-TV in Washington reported. The less-famous Lynch spotted the Seattle Seahawks running back at a gas station, and amid all the excitement of seeing the star, he unknowingly left his wallet behind.
Jason took to Facebook to tell the story:
“Crazy! So I’m at the shell station in Marysville. I’m getting in my car when I see a giant Mercedez van pull up playing music super loud. Marshawn Lynch jumps out and walks into the store. I thought about asking for a picture but was in my work clothes and decided not to bother him. I leave to go pick up Junior…. What I didn’t know was that I dropped my wallet.
“When I got home about 10 minutes later my neighbor knocks on door. She told me I would never guess who brought this to her…. I had no clue, but when she said Marshawn Lynch I was shocked ! I guess I was so distracted by the van pulling up I dropped my wallet. My neighbor said Marshawn, Ricardo Lockette and a cameraman were headed to Marysville Pilchuck and decided to bring it to me on the way there. My neighbor tried asking for a pic but they politely refused and their only concern was that I got my wallet back.
“I can’t thank them guys enough for bringing it back and for making my neighbor a very happy lady for getting to a chance to meet them.”
Jason later tweeted a thank you to Marshawn for reuniting him with his wallet and received a retweet in response. [tweet https://twitter.com/206Lynch/status/534918068439613440 align=’center’]
Later that day, Marshawn and some of his teammates visited Marysville-Pilchuck High School to participate in an assembly less than a month after a tragic shooting at the school claimed five lives.
