FedEx shooting victim says thank you

Posted: Updated:
KENNESAW, Ga. - Christopher Sparkman was critically wounded in the Federal Express shooting, but authorities credit him with saving the lives of a number of people.

Sparkman, an Army veteran and newlywed, was the first person shot when Geddy Kramer walked into a FedEx ground facility in Kennesaw and shot 6 people before turning the gun on himself in April.

Sparkman took part in a special ceremony Friday at Kennestone Hospital to thank the people who saved his life.

Sparkman and his wife, Jamie Lynn, talked about the last few months of recovery and thanked the nurses and staff at Kennestone.

Friends and family say Sparkman is a "great young man" and that he was minutes from finishing his shift at the time of the shooting.


Sparkman has undergone dozens of surgeries. Not only did he spend his 29th birthday in the hospital, but his wedding anniversary too.

Sparkman has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but both he and his wife say God and the public's support has helped them through it all.
