BOLD JACK – Being good at being a man

Thomas Weller, a.k.a. “The San Diego Highwayman” has been rescuing people stranded on the side of the road for 48 years.

When he was 16 years old, he drove his car into a ditch. A man came along and rescued him, asking only that Thomas pay it forward one day.

Since that time, Weller has rescued thousands of people who were stranded in one way or another. Weller hands them a card that says “You don’t owe me a thing. I’ve been there too. Someone once helped me out, just the way I’m helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here’s what you do: don’t let the chain of love end with you.

Back in August of 2011, Weller’s famous rescue car “Beulah” was totalled during a rescue. The remains of his prized car still sit in his back yard. Weller simply can’t afford to repair the car but has dreams of getting her back on the road while he’s still able to help others.

About the Project:

whileimheretheproject.com

While I'm Here | The Legacy Project is a series of videos that profile living legacies while they're still doing what they do best ... turning life into legacy.

I decided to start this project after missing out on the chance to tell the story of a man from my hometown who dedicated his life to helping others. That man's name was Frank Dymock. For years, Frank opened his garage to the public and sharpened skates free of charge. He wouldn't accept a dime. He was an icon in the place where I grew up, and I always wanted to tell his story while he was still here.

Regretfully, I let time pass, and Frank passed away before I had the chance to tell his story. This project is dedicated to him and to countless others who live selflessly and truly leave a legacy, forever impacting the lives of the people lucky enough to cross their paths.

This project is 100 per cent a passion project. It's self funded and something I wanted to do to pay it forward to people like Frank and Thomas (The San Diego Highwayman) who is profiled in this first film.

The crew and I have donated our time and personal expense to make this first film happen, and I am truly grateful that we were able to do so.

Special Thanks:

A very special thanks to Thomas and his wife Patti, who spent so much time with us and opened their doors to allow us to help tell this special story.
