Meis was hailed as a hero — and then the Internet found out he was getting married.
Visitors flocked to the wedding registries that Meis and his fiancee had set up at Target and Crate & Barrel, buying gifts for the couple as a show of gratitude.
And then something really special happened.
ESPN Seattle producer Jessamyn MacIntyre wanted to buy something on the registry but couldn't — all the items had been purchased.
So she launched a crowdfunding campaign for the couple and was quickly amazed by the results.
