Jay Brobst


Hello, my name is John Brobst. A lot of people know me as the guy that brings laughs to the table from my creative jokes. They say there are two types of favors: a big favor and a small favor. You can measure the size of the favor by the length of the pause a person takes after they ask you for a favor. A small favor will have a small pause, and as the favor is a greater ask, the pause will get longer. For example, “hey can I bother you for a pencil?” One second later, “sure.” Now for a big favor, “hey can I have one of your kidney’s?” A pause still exists to this day 😊. I am living my life to the fullest as much as I can with my kidney failure.

I am on the waiting list for a kidney; however, a new kidney would give me the strength, energy and time to live life again. I’d love to start my retirement with my love of 38 years, Julie. We could have pets again! Play a little golf and spend some quality time together. I would be able to share in the love and laughter of my family and friends again.

Hope is a wonderful thing. I am trying to find someone that would be willing to donate one of their kidneys to me as a god’s gift. Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of god’s best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of giving of one’s self and appreciating what is noble is the love that exists in one another.

I would be grateful if you could help me find a match by getting tested or sharing this information with your own network of friends, family, and community.

I am eternally grateful, Thank You
John Brobst
