From the beginning, Jeff has been the ultimate underdog.
Born with cerebral palsy and a love of sports, his greatest ambition was to someday become an athlete. Unfortunately, Jeff’s roadmap to achievement was anything but easy – not because he has cerebral palsy, but because of the limits placed onto him by others.
After being rejected from numerous teams – including those with a “no-cut” policy – Jeff carved his own path. Ever persistent, Jeff’s mentality led to his breakthrough! Ultimately earning his chance to compete, Jeff’s robust spirit and relentless work ethic propelled him into a future filled with ongoing achievement and success.
His hard work and dedication led him to compete athletically at the collegiate level. The inspirational affect he had on teammates, competitors, and spectators alike was universal, and at the end of his collegiate career, an annual race was renamed in his honor.
