(PCM) 18-year old Jette Collins knows that he was conceived at the inaugural K-Rockathon concert in 1996 and has now decided to enlist the internet’s help with tracking down his biological father who he has never met. He is hoping that the message he shared via Facebook will reach someone who may have additional information.
Jette knows very little details about his father other than his name is Jason and he lived in Syracuse, New York, and of course attended the 1996 rock concert. Jette wrote down those details on a poster board, snapped an image of himself holding the message and posted it on his Facebook page. The post has since been shared over 12,000 times in all areas of the country.
When speaking with the New York Daily News Jette says that his mother, Diana Collins, met Jason at the K-Rockathon when she was 16 years old, things got hot and heavy between Diana and Jason at the show and Jette is the result of that evening. Jette says Diana and Jason stayed in touch for a few weeks after the concert however after that they lost touch and shortly after that Diana discovered she was pregnant.
Jette and his mother Diana have tried tracking down Jason in the past, however they have always ended up at a dead end. Their hope now is that if enough Facebook users see and share the most, someone with information about Jason, or even Jason himself, will come forward and Jette will finally be able to meet his father.
