The tornados really stirred up trouble in the North Texas area … $2 billion dollars worth of trouble in damages.
But Jerry Jones and his team came to the rescue after the storms sent many Texans into a tailspin.
The Gene and Jerry Jones Foundation and NFL Foundation just surprised the Thomas Jefferson High School Athletics program with a $1 MILLION donation to build a new athletic field!!!!

The surprise for the high school came on the night of their homecoming game … but it will be a real homecoming when they can rebuild and return to playing on their home field.
