4-year-old Jesse Koczon, the kid who cried on America’s Funniest Home Videos and then on Youtube for the whole world to see, because he was too small to be Governor of New Jersey, was made ‘Honorary Governor’ by the actual Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie. He and his twin brother and his family were given a tour of the governor’s office yesterday.
Dawn Koczon, the twins’ mother, said the boys went crazy on Tuesday when they heard they were going to meet the governor. ”They both just started jumping up and down, and they were screaming,” she said. Brandon declared himself and his brother “the luckiest kids ever,” Koczon said.
The video was shot on Election Day 2009 after the Koczons took their twins to their polling place. The children wanted to vote too, but a poll worker told them they were not big enough. Jesse began to cry, and the tears continued well into the car ride home. Koczon flipped the camera on, asked her son why he was crying, and he replied: “Everyone tells me that I’m too small to be the governor of New Jersey.”
Here’s the video of the Governor signing over the desk to little Jesse:
