Eric's Heroes: A giant of a humble little lady

When we first started Eric's Heroes a few months ago, the idea was simple: Celebrate the regular people out there who are doing wonderful things to improve lives.

Not the people seeking recognition, necessarily, but the people deserving it.

This week, we bring you a lovely lady who is the personification of that idea.

She gives of her time, and gives of her energy. She is passionate and COMpassionate. She asks nothing in return for her work. And she keeps doing it week after week, year after year.

Jean Ferguson is a humble little lady who is, in actuality, a giant.

She is changing lives, and this week she is my Hero.

Editor's Note: "Eric's Heroes" is a weekly series airing every Wednesday on KOMO News in the 6 p.m. newscast. If you have a good story about a good person doing good things for the right reasons, share it with Eric by sending an email to
