Firefighters for Healing and Board of Directors Announcement

We are proud to announce that Ron Meuser, Owner of Meuser Law Office, P.A. has graciously accepted an invitation for a position on the board of directors of Firefighters for Healing. Firefighters for Healing is a non-profit organization founded in 2010 by Jake LeFerriere, a Minneapolis firefighter, with a mission to support burn survivors and their families in ways insurance companies and caregivers are unable to do.

Jake was inspired to create Firefighters for Healing while receiving treatment in the hospital after suffering 3rd & 4th degree burns in a backdraft explosion while battling a house fire. Jake spent 8 weeks in the burn unit at Hennepin County Medical Center (HCMC) and, while being treated for his burn injuries, met young kids who were also undergoing the same painful treatment for their injuries. There were two young boys in particular that really made an impact with Jake when he met them. Jake refers to this life-changing event as “a blessing” and this is how Firefighters for Healing was born.

Watch this video to hear from Jake LeFerriere, Founder/President of Firefighters for Healing, and learn what inspired him to start the organization, what Meuser Law Office, P.A. has done for him and his excitement about the addition of Ron Meuser to their board of directors.

Meuser Law Office, P.A. was not only instrumental in helping Jake secure Minnesota workers’ compensationPERA, and health benefits after his tragic on-the-job injury, but reassured him that everything would be okay. Ron’s team took care of the legal aspect of Jake’s injuries so that he could focus on his treatment and healing.

Meuser Law Office, P.A. has been a proud sponsor and donor of Firefighters for Healing from the beginning and Ron is honored to be a part of their board of directors to assist them with moving their mission forward.
