Judd Frost, owner of Judd Frost Clothiers in Wayzata, said FedEx, UPS and airline package services told him they would not be able to make the delivery on time after Jason Anderson, 32, left his $500 tuxedo pants behind in the store's dressing room and boarded a plane to Costa Rica for his wedding, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported Monday.
Frost said his daughter, Jessie, 32, who went to high school with Anderson's fiancee, Heather Spaeth, 32, boarded a plane at 6 a.m. Sunday with the forgotten pants in tow.
"I didn't want them to try and find something else. He is really hard to fit. He's a big kid," Judd Frost said.
Spaeth, whose wedding is scheduled for Monday, said she and Anderson were "speechless" at the kindness of the Frosts.
"I cried. You, Sir, are incredible! Jessie Frost and Judd Frost are my life savers!" Spaeth wrote in an email to Judd Frost.
"I feel like I am carrying treasure through the jungle," Jessie Frost said Sunday. "It's pretty intense, but feels pretty great."
Judd Frost said Costa Rica is the farthest he's ever sent someone on a delivery.
"We just want to take care of people so they have a great experience," Judd Frost said. "It's a big day for them. We certainly weren't going to disappoint them."
