Jack sustained a C4-C5 incomplete spinal cord injury resulting in quadriplegia training no-gi jiujitsu in San Diego. It was any other Thursday afternoon between work and school training no-gi jiujitsu. With 10 minutes left in the sparring session, he was hurt during a takedown attempt while training with the instructor.
Jack believes having a new Macski surfboard will allow him to pursue his life’s passion of surfing once again, post injury. As someone who grew up swimming, freediving, and surfing all of the California coast, being in the water is what brings him joy and the grant provided by High Fives will assist in getting him back to his happy place, the ocean.
