ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – We’re sharing a positive update on a story we first brought you earlier this month.

The family of Jerry Tschauner tells us, he has made huge progress in his recovery against COVID-19.

Right now, Jerry is out of his coma and communicating with his loved ones.

“You know, Jerry was on death’s door. That Tuesday when he took a turn for the worse, we just didn’t know that he was going to make it,” said Penny Roberts, Jerry’s mother. “He’s doing good. He’s been moved to a private room. He’s gaining some strength. He’s now off a ventilator.”
