Jack was on my high school ski racing team, and an avid skier in general. While practicing, he came around a gate and hit a rut, causing him to smash into a tree about twenty feet down from the course.

Jack’s T12 vertebrae sustained a bust fracture, some of his L1- L5 vertebrae were slightly fractured, he fractured two ribs, punctured a lung, and bruised his liver in the fall. His T12 vertebrae was replaced with a cage, and his spine is now fused from L1 to T11. He suffered a T9 spinal cord injury incomplete, and is now currently an ASIA D, and walking around on crutches with a single AFO brace.

“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity, in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.“
