    A Massachusetts community is coming together this Thanksgiving to help a family who recently lost their father in a tragic work accident.

    Jennifer Sanderson's husband, Jason, was using a saw at a construction site in Duxbury on Saturday when the saw kicked back and cut him.

    The 28-year-old was rushed to a local hospital where he died.

    "It is not Thanksgiving without him, it is not going to be the same," Sanderson said. "It was tough and hard even before when I had Jason's support, so it is a lot."

    Sanderson is finding support. Her large family is checking in on her and a GoFundMe page has raised more than $30,000.

    "It is just overwhelming the love and support everyone has shown," she said. "I have gotten so many messages I can't even look at half of them, but I do want to thank them."

    Sanderson says naturally the holidays will be tough. Last year, the whole family gathered together. She longs for that again.

    "I would love to, ya know, go back to that moment and be a family again," she said.

    Sanderson says she still doesn't fully understand what happened.

    "There has been a lot of Why questions. Why did this happen? Why to him? He was just such a good man, he didn't deserve it," she said.

    To help the Sanderson family, donations can be made here.
