Some people might not love Jon Gosselin, but it turns out that he is a hero. Radar Online shared the details about how Jon actually saved a woman from a burning house. This all went down on Saturday in Reading, Pennsylvania. The father of eight is now being called a hero. It turns out that Jon Gosselin was in the right spot at the right time, and this woman is very lucky that he was near her home when the fire started.
A source shared the details saying, “Jon saw a house on fire in his neighborhood and called 911. But that’s not all—he banged on the door and got the woman out and then went back in to get her two dogs, too!” Jon was able to save them all from the house. This is pretty heroic and everyone is excited to hear what an amazing thing he did this weekend.

Jon Gosselin had friends contact him to tell him how great he did, and it sounds like he isn’t taking any credit for it. A source that spoke to Jon said that he only said, “thanks but I’m not a hero. I’m sure it was just circumstance and any one of us would have done the same thing.”
Jon doesn’t seem to think that he did anything special, but that woman probably feels like he did. Jon did say that he was glad everyone was alive and safe after the fire.
Jon Gosselin hasn’t posted anything about this on his Twitter account, and it sounds like he is just going on with his life. He is now being considered a hero, though. Jon has done various jobs over the last few years, including a small stint as a stripper. Fireman isn’t one of the jobs he has done, but he did a great job performing their job today by saving this woman. Jon has been working as a DJ and just living his life. He doesn’t have anything to do with reality television anymore. Kate still does her show once in a while, but Jon Gosselin isn’t part of it at all.
Over the last few years, Jon and his ex-wife Kate have not been able to get along when it comes to the kids. They have revealed that they don’t really talk anymore, and the kids just get dropped off by the bus at his house. People shared awhile back that Jon was speaking out about how he does love his kids and has always been there for them. He doesn’t have much to do with his older daughters anymore.
His daughter Mady said, “he makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane. He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen.” Jon did speak back saying, “I love my children very much. I’ve always been there for them, and I always will be. It’s shocking.”
Jon has always made it clear he cares about his kids when talking to the press.
