Cook For Lsu Frat


Three decades after Jessie Hamilton worked as a cook at a Louisiana State University fraternity house, the members have not forgotten her kindness or her cooking (specifically her fried chicken and mashed potatoes).

The brothers of Phi Gamma Delta house, many of them now in their 50s, pitched in to surprise her on April 3 with “Jessie Hamilton Day” in Baton Rouge, leaving her stunned as they handed her a $45,000 check for the remainder of the mortgage on the home she bought in 2006.
