Do chaverim members count too?

Joe Kay

Can I nominate Dan and JJ for letting us know when and where to buy sold out essentials??


Only if they have .edu emails associated with a university research lab

Joseph a

In my opinion Chaverim members should be eligible as “ Workers who coordinate with other organizations”.


Dr Lou Saffran best Dr at South Nassau in oceanside

Lakewood guy

Are teachers eligible?


why? Are they a healthcare hero?

Plus one of the few groups in America (along with the rest of their gov’t buddies) drawing a full paycheck with less work


Teachers are all around HEROES (ask any parent) and thus included in any type of HERO award.


Not yeshiva/day school teachers. They claim they are working harder than ever.

Dan\'s the Man

Dr Joey Shatkes in Englewood hospital. Has really gone above and beyond for his patients (and even those who were not his patients before they got the corona. Really advocated for pateients. I know someone who the hospital wanted to send home and he was in really bad shape with trouble breathing someone hot him in touch with Dr Shatkes and within minutes he was at the hospital and at the patients side saying don’t worry you ain’t going nowhere. He mamish saved lives and also let families facetime on his personal phone so they could talk to their sick relatives


thanks! I B”H dont know anyone and would love to nominate those who deserve it. So keep the suggestions coming

Dan\'s the Man

The correct spelling for those who want to nominate him is: Dr Joseph Shatzkes

Dr. Moses Kranzler

I’d like to recommend Dr. Jeremy Dennis, an anesthesiologist at Yale New haven Hospital who, for the last few weeks was assigned to head the unit of the patients hospitalized with the virus. A very special young man.


Can I nominate myself??

Byron Cary

I’d like to nominate Byron Cary. He’s an ER doctor at Northwell Health at Northshore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish Hospital. Has been working On the front lines since this all began. He stays late to make sure patients are properly given to the next worker and never leaves any patient until he knows they are being cared for by the next healthcare worker. Byron hasn’t been able to see family or friends in over 8 weeks as he has put everyone else first. I don’t know anyone more deserving than Byron! And by the way, thanks for doing this!!

Dana Cary

I’d like to nominate Byron Cary for this. Byron is an ER doctor at Northshore University Hospital and Long Island Jewish hospital. Byron has been on the front lines of the Covid-19 outbreak and has risked his health daily by working with Covid-19 patients 24/7. Byron hasn’t seen friends or family in the past 8 weeks in order to fully dedicate himself to his job. Byron is an outstanding doctor with dogged determination to save lives. He is empathetic, hard-working, and self-less in his work to help others survive. Byron’s email address is : Bcary@northwell.edu

Tracey Martin

RN Naasiya Johnson at St. Barnabas in Livingston in NJ for her dedication. Naasiya and the other members of the medical staff at St. Barnabas in Livingston, NJ, have been going above and beyond in their care for COVID-19 patientsat this hospital. She has been putting in 18 hour shifts with 4 hour sleep, if that,, in between with a permanent smile. Nursing in this pandemic requires a heart that understands the complexity of both the medical and emotional needs of the ill and their families. Nassiya approaches her work with a positive attitudes and understanding of this illnesses, then adds compassion and kindness that, to these patients, is immeasurable. I give her my vote, and I stand at a salute to her grace under pressure and a job well done.

Ursula Gerson

My dad was 83 years old and went to St. Barnabas in Livingston in NJ in March. He was tested positive for COVID-19 and had an ecoli infection. St. Barnabas refused to admit him because he was not yet in respiratory distress. They sent him back to the nursing home where he died a few days later. I’m sure the RN you nominated is going a great job, but I am so frustrated why they would not admit a senior in need. He would still be alive if they admitted him as he would have had the resources he heeded.


So saddened for your loss.
I can’t imagine the pain or frustration.
May your memories of him be a blessing and a source of comfort and may his soul soar to the loftiest of heights.
I hope comfort finds you soon.


I’d like to nominate Isaac Moorvitch. He is an EMT volunteer to the Los Angeles community and is a ER Technician working the front lines. He has set up a gofundme to raise money for medical supplies for different hospitals. He goes above and beyond to help everyone!


Dr Chaim Ross Winthrop hospital
Moshe Horowitz medical supplies
Akiva Horowitz health care facility


Just got an email noting my hero won with the subject “A note from Jetblue Healthcare Heroes Sweepstakes” – keep an eye out, it isn’t very clear in the email subject.


I entered my sister. I just got an email that she was a winner!


We won!!


Winner here too. Did everyone “win”?

Texas Totty

I won as well!


Winner here too. Here’s to hoping Chesed Volunteers are considered as he never ended up doing plasma donation.


My wife won as well!!

Thanks for the deal

Nominated my wife, who’s a hospital pharmacist, and she won!


My wife nominated me for Chevra Kadisha volunteer work and I won! Thanks Dan for making us aware of this!


Does anyone else wonder how it seems everyone is a winner?


Because there are 90,000 winning nominees. With that said I nominated three and none have won.


They gave out 90,000 tickets…


There were 90k winners. Plus if someone didnt respond or couldnt provide adequate credentials they picked another winner for their spot.


Yes they won!


I nominated my wife and we won!
Thanks Dan & JJ for all your great work!


Idk I tried nominating him in the comments and never got any confirmation


Nominations were supposed to be submitted via Jetblue not here lol


Nominated my wife and she won. Email went to promotions so didnt see it till a day and a half later and the deadline to respond to email is 3 days.


Do you think you’ll still get it? Or have you heard anything? Same here


My Nominee won


I nominated 2 Hatzalah members and they both won

Lakewood guy

Jonathan Nissanoff

My patients nominated me and I won. The real question is where is the most expensive trip to use these tickets for?


My nominee won!!! So excited for him.

My sister won!
Frontline PA

I know someone that won 3 times. How can they get all 3?



Texas Totty

I was nominated bt lots of people (I donate plasma every week) but the one that got the email was my wife so no awkward ticket sharing requests.


I won but don’t hear back confirmation yet. Did anyone get confirmation yet?


are resident physicians eligible? Ty


What do u consider the best use of this prize?


My nominee won BH! I only knew about this opportunity because of you Dan. And thanks for letting us know to check the email because it came 2 days ago, there is a time limit, and I might never have realized it!


My sister in law won on our nomination! Thanks Dan!


I won TYSM!


where is winners list?

Rose A

I’m also interested in the winners list. If u find out how to obtain it please share it with me. Thank you.


Won and responded but never heard back…

Christina Cerezo

Same here

Colleen rondeau

Me too


Thanks Dan. My wife one


I nominated three people, and they all won. My son nominated three people, and only one of them won. So…four out of six of our nominees won. That sounds like a pretty high percentage. I’m wondering how limited these free tickets will be.


I won twice; got nominated by my wife and a friend for Chevra Kadisha work. Only one winner per person though!


I nominated my ride in die friend and she won, verified and got conformation back within minutes of submitting her info. So check spam maybe its in there.


I was nominated and responded but never got confirmation email. Has anyone? Thanks


I also won and though sending in my verification info did not hear back from them – maybe it is because I did it over the long holiday weekend


I nominated someone and they were selected! Unfortunately I stopped diligently checking my email a week after the winners were supposed to be announced (May 18) so I missed the email. It’s 4 days out from when they sent it so I’m hoping and praying they still honor it and let her get her tickets. She really deserves it!

Kathi G

I received an email from my friend who nominated me and it showed I was chosen for the grand prize, I completed my form and uploaded the documents required but never received and email confirming the certificates.


Same here

Lakewood guy

Same here

Christina Cerezo



It said tickets would be distributed starting June 8 but my mom won and still hasn’t seen or heard anything else

Elizabeth LaPointe

It says the tickets will be emailed by June 7

Christina Cerezo

Thanks for the info!!!!

Mary McClellan

Email went to spam so did not receive it in time. Is there anything I can do?


Send it to the winner let them complete the verification. Worst is JetBlue says no.


Had the same. However, received another email yesterday with the title final notification that did not go to SPAM. Reply date is today and nominee completed and submitted. Anyone with similar events? How soon after were the vouchers received by recipients?


Nominated my daughter, an RN and was notified today that she won!!!

El Capitan

My nomination for Dr Rosen of Crown heights won!!!


Has anyone got a response from them. I got the email sent it to TV e party they sent in the proof and never heard back it been about 2 weeks?


The email said that they will be sending the tickets the week of june 8th. If you click the verification link again after submitting everything it will show you the status. At first mine said that they are reviewing and now I checked and it says verification complete.


Thanks just checked and it’s showing me the 15th

RBC Nurse

Thanks Dan! I won a nomination, and a coworker won a nomination that I submitted!


If your winning nominee already got from someone else, forward to another Hatzalah or Chevra Kadisha Volunteer or email the link to me therabbi at ymail.com and i can forward to members in Crown Heights Hatzalah and Chevra Kadisha that didnt win yet. Dont let it go to waste! lets help each other. (the names dont have to match)


That seems a bit dishonest as it says they are non-transferable.


Hashem could find a way to get you a flight somewhere without you violating the terms of this promotion (=gezel akum, at the very least in spirit).

Aliza Sherman

Got notified today that 2 more of my nominees won, so 3 altogether. So excited!


My DW nominated me, and I won today! Thanks, Dan, for making us all aware of this opportunity.

Jeremy Hawk

I got emails saying had 3 nominees selected. The email came from jetblue@email-hub.com which doesn’t seem right. Is this a scam address?


I got an email from the same address. Seems 100% legit to me.

Sam m

Thanks Dan. I won and a few other people in my family won. One of my brothers won 3 times.


I won, and am a govt nurse. I’m a little worried it will not be played based on “gift” rules. Anyone have insight on that?


It’s not from a patient so what’s the issue? Take them tickets girl


Yah, i got confirmation from work and plan to use them 🙂

Texas Totty

I won in the first round and now my nominee won as well!
Just weird that there wasn’t any communication from them since I submitted the verification.


Verification Submission Complete!
Please note that all winners are also manually verified by a real person. Limit one prize per Nominee. Approved nominees will receive their travel certificates beginning approximately the week of June 15th.

Participants may not nominate or claim flight certificates for themselves. Disqualified winners will not be contacted

Chana L

Nominated my father and he won! Thanks Dan for the heads up to check our emails again. I could’ve easily missed it.

Christina Cerezo

I was one of the winners from NYC and responded with proper ID and selfie as requested however no further email was sent back to me. I have not received any tickets as of yet. Is there anything else I need to submit?


Does anyone know if this doesn’t include layovers ? Like if we wanted to fly from Florida to NYC but there was a layover in Houston- this prize would only include Florida to Houston ?


I am wondering the same thing. Closest airport to me is 5 1/2 hours and the only direct flight is to Boston. All other destinations have layovers!


I won twice from different people. Does anyone know if you can claim both?


They sent my nominator an email that I won and I filled out my info. Haven’t gotten an update and it’s been over a week. Anyone know how to find out the status?


Same here


I didn’t think I got an update. But i just searched my email and it was there. i think it went to spam.


I did not know of this offer. How were people notified of this deal? I could have nominated my daughter who is a First Respondent and Covid-19.

Melissa S

I won but when do we receive tickets. Thank you JetBlue


I won . Saw JetBlue advertising on Facebook – shared and forgot about it. My friend endorsed me and also forgot about it . She found email on her junk mail on last day June 8- so notified me – to verify my employment and provide pickture with my work ID and selfie. I was very sceptical about it – but she insisted to complete verification. Today I got confirmation with certification ID # . Well paid – for my working 6 days/week at medical field , taking care of parents , aunts and son. I turn 50 this year , my son graduated from middle school – so need to choose the destination- where and when to go .


Received confirmation on tickets today. How much are the tickets worth? Is it $500 for both tickets?


Received two ticket vouchers today. Are they worth only $500 total?


@Dan any good ideas where to use my vouchers? (Jet blue agreed that Chesed of BP is an volunteer medical assistance organization – driving people to and from hospitals)

Andrew Weiner

I second the question. This might warrant its own post.


alright all, who has actually used their tickets? I just got my voucher Friday, but I live in Iowa and the closest airport hubs to me are all closed due to covid. So, looking to fly in sept/oct. Just wondering the value on the tickets? All the press I read says, “fly anywhere”, but then I also see that the “estimated value” is $500. Thanks for any feedback if ya got it 🙂

Texas Totty

In the blackout dates, it first says April 7-25
Then it says April 14-25:
Boston, MA (BOS)
Hartford, CT (BDL)
Providence, RI (PVD)
Worcester, MA (ORH)
Does this mean Pesach travel is out? Why is 14-25 not included in 7-25?

JB hero

Hi can anyone ask jet blue to extend cert expiration?
