Dan Snyder Gifts Jones Redskins Van

Dan Snyder handed Charles Jones a $20,000 check, clapped him on the shoulder and gripped his hand.

When Snyder heard Jones’ story, how the 55-year old veteran escaped his life as a homeless man with help from his Redskins-themed 2001 Ford E150, the owner was moved to action.

On Friday afternoon, Snyder greeted Jones at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Va., to personally deliver payment for the van that would help Jones clear his debt. Then he told Jones, “the van is yours.”

“Your story really touched my heart,” Snyder said upon meeting Jones.

Jones thanked Snyder, then showed the owner his name, one of more than 500 scrawled across the automobile in Sharpie ink. Dan Snyder’s name is on the driver’s side above a central window panel, neighboring DeAngelo Hall and Darrell Green.
