TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The mother of a 37-year-old Tampa man is so
desperate to find him a wife that she paid $500 to put an ad in The
Claudia, who didn't want to give her last name for privacy reasons, says it's sad that such a "good boy" is alone. The ad, which ran Nov. 30, says Jason is gainfully employed, kind and handsome. She's hoping to find at least a few good candidates before Christmas.
Jason says he's fine with his mother's idea, figuring anything is worth a shot. He's been looking for Mrs. Right since his 2003 divorce.
The University of South Florida graduate works as a software
marketing manager. He also volunteers with teens with Down syndrome.
Responses for the ad were directed to a P.O. Box in Virginia, where the mother-in-law hopeful lives.
