One of the Powerball winner’s from last week’s massive jackpot win has come forward. The winner is a warehouse supervisor from Tennessee, USA. John Robinson is his name, and they have recently received their share of the jackpot, with many plans set before them. Read further to find out what they are.
John Robinson and his wife, Lisa, will be taking home $328 million as a lump sum option before taxes. Mr. Robinson is 58-years-old, and he had the following to say about accepting the lump sum: “We’re going to take the lump sum because we’re not guaranteed tomorrow. We just want a little piece of the pie. Now we’re really grateful we got the big piece of the pie.”
The couple’s big win almost didn’t happen, though. You see, John was on his way back home after his shift at work. It was Wednesday. His wife, Lisa, called him to stop by and get a Powerball ticket. He was tired and didn’t feel well at the time, so he almost reconsidered, but, in the end, he stopped at Naifeh’s grocery store and bought four tickets.
It was the best last-minute decision the family could have made because that’s exactly how their lives changed in an instant. Lisa was in bed. She works for a dermatologist. She suddenly began hollering and shouting when she was watching the draw. She saw that they had matched all numbers. John double-checked but said he would only believe they had indeed won after it turned up “on the news”.
Even though they never have to work another day in their whole lives, they are returning back to work today, Monday the 18th of January. John explained, “That’s what we’ve done all our lives, is work.” They have no plans so far as to buying a new house, either.
They have a daughter, Tiffany, and they want to pay off her student loan. Tiffany has always loved horses, too, so she has already asked her parents to buy her one. The winning Powerball couple has plans to help their friends, and also, make some donations to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, as well as their church.
The winning Powerball numbers were:
4-8-19-27-34 and the Powerball number of 10.
The other two winning tickets from Florida and California have yet to be claimed. Keep our eyes peeled to our blog to find out who they are!
