New York, NY - The story of former Cal State Fullerton catcher Jon Wilhite's survival and lengthy rehabilitation from the April auto crash that killed three of his friends will be featured on Fox News' "Celebration of Life."
The Mike Huckabee Show crew prepared the piece that will be telecast at 5 p.m. PST on Dec. 26 and be repeated at 5 and 8 p.m. PST on Dec. 27. Jon and his family were in New York three weeks ago for the taping. Among the poignant scenes will be the first meeting between Jon and the family of Angels' pitcher Nick Adenhart, who was killed along with former CSF cheerleader Courtney Stewart and Jon's longtime friend Henry Pearson.
Jon, who celebrated his 25th birthday on Christmas eve, was able to move back into his own apartment in the South Bay area last month after lengthy rehabilitation in the hospital, rehab centers and at his parents' home in Riverside County.
