The winning ticket was one of two that the man bought on his lunch break Thursday. After Jose H. learned he had a winning ticket, he said he went back to work but — surprise, surprise —  couldn’t concentrate on his job.

“I ended up telling my manager what happened and he let me go home for the day,” he said, adding that he is thinking about going back to school to pursue a career in the healthcare industry.
