It has happened many times before that a lottery comes at the just the right time to make for an unbelievable surprise. This was the case for Jessa Mae Del Barrio who won $779,264 in the Powerball draw that took place on the 9th of January. Read her full story here.
Jessa is from Nevada in California, USA. Her win came at the perfect time because just before her discovery, she handed in her notice at a discount retailer where she worked as a supervisor. It wasn’t making Jessa happy as she is a certified nurse and wants to study further to become a registered one.
Jessa’s Powerball win is the latest to have taken place after Tori Daniels won $500,000 on a California Gold Rush scratch card. It was Jessa’s husband who surprised her with the winning Powerball ticket. He drove from Nevada to California to get them, but on the day of the draw, instead of going to the usual well-known store, he went to the Stateline Service Station in Mountain Pass and bought ten tickets there.
Jessa and her husband were already in high spirits as it was her birthday. A few hours later, she was in the shower when her husband was worked up and telling her that they had won a second tier prize. “My husband was banging on the door. I thought he was joking,” explained Jessa. She just carried on showering and paid it little attention.
When she eventually got out of the shower, she checked the ticket her husband handed her and then her eyes went wide. She realized that it really wasn’t a joke. “This is the biggest gift ever,” she exclaimed.
The couple’s winning Powerball numbers in the 9th January draw were:
They missed out on the Powerball 13. If they matched this number, too, they would have won close to $1 million. Jessa wasn’t complaining, though! She was over the moon and back! “I’m very satisfied with the win. Even just a little bit would be fine for me,” she said. The couple want to pay off their mortgage and put their kids through college.
“The future is secure!” declared Jessa.
