Jefferson, a 23-year veteran custodian at Our Lady of the Assumption, said he was nervous "just like a new student" on his first day of work, the story stated.
Though he and his wife have no children, Jefferson, who often prays with students during lunchtime, says God has made up for their lack of offspring with all of the students he cleans for, looks after and mentors, the story noted.
Jefferson said: "It''s like the whole school, all the kids are my family. And I''m going to watch out for you, just like I watch out for them."
According to the story, Jefferson offers a lunchtime blessing for all of the students each and every day, something students appreciate and look forward to.
Jefferson, a firm believer that good things come to those who deserve them, feels that those who stay focused will always reach their goals, the story added.
