(KSL News) Inspired by their own son's autism, a Lindon couple is now part of the dedicated volunteer force for the Special Olympics.

After giving so many high fives to others, we decided Jeff and Sharon Jarman deserved one of their own. They were nominated by Jeff's sister, Chris Shurtz.

"They work with those children and sit with them on the sidelines and cheer them on. I'm so proud of them," Chris said.

Sharon explained, "The time we spend with these kids is extremely rewarding. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."

Jeff agreed. "I really enjoy working with the kids," he said. "They're a lot of fun. They're wonderful. That's why we're here, is for them."

Jeff and Sharon received a High 5 from our Coco Warner, and a gift basket from the Thanksgiving Point Emporium.
