9/11 Hero Extremely Happy With ‘Extreme Makeover’

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An ex-Marine who risked his life to save two police officers at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, finally has something to write home about: A new home.

That’s because Jason Thomas recently received the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition treatment when Ty Pennington and cerw visited his home in Columbus, Ohio.

Thomas says the home was built in 1999, but the builders used cheap materials since it designed as a demo home. As a result, the ceiling was caving in and the walls were split in every room.

Even worse: The house was so creaky that Thomas had to position his five kids in a particular fashion whenever a tornado was sighted in his area.

As he puts it, “I’m not fond of tornadoes.”

Although Thomas was happy to leave home for a week, he said it was hard to relax while on vacation at Disney World with his family.

He stresses he wasn’t worried about the Extreme Makeover crew, but admits, “I could’t relax because I had five kids at Disney World.”

Thomas’ new home will be unveiled on Sunday (Feb. 11), and he says that’s when he will finally find out who submitted his name to the show’s producers.
