Monday, Person posted this update on Facebook:

“Here is an update on our deer friend that Josh named Jack. I was driving about half-a-mile from our house, when I saw a deer that looked like it came out of an open garage door at a neighbor’s house. I went back to see if it was Jack; sure enough it was. My neighbor was in his garage sharpening his lawn mower blades. He didn’t even know that Jack had came to investigate what he was doing. When I got his attention and showed him Jack, he was also shocked. I went back home to grab Kaitlyn and Josh so they could visit with Jack. It was a good reunion.”
