Jay Leno to the rescue

By: Colette Slattery (Hairstylist)

Hi Essie,

I worked for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno during the Northridge earthquake, we lived in Valencia at the time. My two Sons and I lived there my oldest Son was in Malibu that night. We were hit pretty hard, our building was condemned for gas leakage and we ( my youngest son and neighbors) all Slept in The Lucky’s shopping center with our cars all around us. I could not make it into work because there was no way out of Valencia. Three days latter I was able to and Jay Leno had started an Earth Quake fund for people who needed help and NBC followed with low interest loans to help rebuild lives.
