Timberlake had a video chat with Jake Wednesday to tell him the news, “You inspire me Jake,” Timberlake told him. “You’ve gotta keep that going! You guys have got to use this van to honk all over town!”

Jake’s dad, a military veteran, is his sole caregiver and is losing function in his hands. The new van will help them with that.
