24-Year-Old College Student Pays Off Grandparents’ Mortgage

Grandson Gift

Most young adults in their early 20s aren’t focused on buying their own home, let alone in a position to do so, but 24-year-old Stefun Darts made the decision to buckle down and save his money in order to give his grandparents a life-changing gift.

The college student sacrificed nights out with friends to save money in order to pay off his grandparents’ mortgage so that they could retire. He reached his goal last week when he gifted them with a $15,000 check. “I couldn’t believe it,” Marilyn Roberts, Darts’ grandmother, told local news station KHOU. “To have a grandson like that is a blessing.”

The couple had been paying their mortgage on time every month for over 20 years and on their way to having the home paid off in four years, but thanks to their grandson, they can now check that off of their to-do list and enjoy the vacation to the Bahamas that Wyatt also bought for them.

“While many teenagers are partying and having fun I had to sacrifice, and finally this Sunday on March 20th, 2016 at 4:00 p.m.,” Darts told People in a statement. “I will experience tears of joy by handing them a check paying off their house so they can retire from work.”

While Stefun isn’t busy being a full-time college student and the world’s best grandson, he’s either working his full-time job or running two small non-profits.
