This single mother was sharing her life story with a co-worker, telling him everything she’d been through, and suddenly, she broke down in tears. Then, when he took off his wig, she got the biggest surprise of her life.

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, as they say. That’s what single mother of two and coffee shop supervisor Deanna did, and then some.

According to Newsner, Deanna, previously, had dropped out of high school and had a drug problem. She struggled with the addiction but managed to get herself clean—and she stayed clean.

What helped Deanna get back on track? Her job, as shift supervisor at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. The job at Coffee Bean provided a much-needed, stable income to care for her two children.

One day, Deanna was assigned to train a new staff member. He was not a young fellow and not the best barista by any means. Still, Deanna handled it like a professional; she stayed calm and patient, talking him through the work.

When a line started to form due to the slow performance from her trainee, she did what any good staffer would do; Deanna handed out coupons with an apology and a smile.

While in the backroom alone with her new trainee, Deanna found herself sharing her life story with him. She revealed her struggles as a single mother trying to save money to send her children to college. She herself hadn’t graduated high school and didn’t intend to. She’d rather focus that money and time on her kids so they may go instead.

Deanna also shared that she recently lost her father to cancer, and that she had liver cancer on top of that.

Later, much to Deanna’s surprise, her co-worker took off his wig—and lo and behold, Deanna had no idea she had been talking to the CEO of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, John Fuller, the whole time.

John had agreed to don the disguise for the show “Undercover Boss,” and he gave Deanna some good news.

John gifted her with US$20,000 to start with; he also wanted her to return to high school and get her diploma, and, upon finishing, his graduation present to her would be another US$10,000.

But wait … he wasn’t finished.

Fuller saved the best gift for last: a US$40,000 college education fund set up for her two children. Upon hearing all this good news, Deanna broke down in tears—tears of joy of course.
